Kommentar von Wells Fargo im Wortlaut:
“We are extremely disappointed in both our second quarter results and our intent to reduce our dividend. Our view of the length and severity of the economic downturn has deteriorated considerably from the assumptions used last quarter, which drove the $8.4 billion addition to our credit loss reserve in the second quarter. While the negative impact of the pandemic is unprecedented and many of our business drivers were negatively impacted, our franchise should perform better, and we will make changes to improve our performance regardless of the operating environment.
“Though our income performance was weak, our capital and liquidity continues to be extremely strong with both our CET1 ratio and LCR increasing from the end of the prior quarter. However, it is critical in these uncertain times that our common stock dividend reflects current earnings capacity assuming a continued difficult operating environment, evolving regulatory guidance, and protects our capital position if economic conditions were to further deteriorate. Given this, we believe it is prudent to be extremely cautious until we see a clear path to broad economic improvement. We are confident that this eventual economic improvement combined with our actions to increase our margins will support a higher dividend in the future,” Scharf added.
“I’m proud of the hard work and dedication of our employees through these challenging times to support our customers, communities, and each other. Our regulatory commitments remain our top priority and while we have more work ahead of us, we continue to devote all necessary resources to this effort,” Scharf concluded.

Bei der Citigroup liegt der Erlös (Umsatz) bei 19,77 Milliarden Dollar (Vorjahresquartal 18,76/erwartet 19,1).
Das Ergebnis liegt bei +0,50 Dollar pro Aktie (Vorjahresquartal 1,95/erwartet +0,28).
Kreditvorsorge 7,9 Milliarden Dollar nach 2,1 Milliarden Dollar vor einem Jahr.
Die Aktie der Citigroup notiert vorbörslich mit +1,1 Prozent.
Kommentar des Citigroup CEO im Wortlaut:
“While credit costs weighed down our net income, our overall business performance was strong during the quarter, and we have been able to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic reasonably well. The Institutional Clients Group had an exceptional quarter, marked by an increase in Fixed Income of 68%. Global Consumer Banking revenues were down as spending slowed significantly due to the pandemic.
“We entered this crisis from a position of strength. During the quarter, our regulatory capital increased and our CET1 ratio improved to 11.5%, comfortably above our new regulatory minimum of 10%. We continued to add to our substantial levels of liquidity and our balance sheet has plenty of capacity to serve our clients. With a sharp emphasis on risk management, we are prepared for a variety of scenarios and will continue to operate our institution prudently given this unprecedented situation,” Mr. Corbat concluded.
