Wells technical analysis suggests possible correction

Current kurtosis is at 1.32. Wells Fargo currently demonstrates below-average downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of 0.08 and Jensen Alpha of 0.21. However, we advise investors to further question Wells Fargo expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Wells Fargo's stock risk against market volatility during both bullying and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Wells Fargo's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

Our Conclusion on Wells Fargo

Whereas some other firms within the banks—diversified industry are still a little expensive, even after the recent corrections, Wells Fargo may offer a potential longer-term growth to investors. To sum up, as of the 13th of April 2021, our analysis shows that Wells Fargo follows the market closely. The company is overvalued and projects below average chance of financial distress for the next 2 years. However, our overall 30 days 'Buy-Sell' recommendation on the company is Strong Buy.
