Wells Fargo Stock Has Been Weak amid Controversy: Can It Recover?

Wells Fargo (WFC) has had a flat operating performance over the past six quarters compared to the stellar performances by its industry peers (XLF) mainly due to controversies involving the fake account opening scam and the latest news about the alteration of internal records. The bank is finding it difficult to shore up its loan book amid such controversies, and its efforts to bump up its integrity through new marketing campaigns are being derailed. The stock has tanked 9.6% over the past one quarter owing to weaker performance and continued controversies surrounding employee culture.
