Deception Spotlight: Scharf at Wells, Need a Mulligan?

We highlight Wells Fargo (WFC) following the company's 4Q19 earnings call on 14 January 2020. With new CEO Charles Scharf now on the job following Tim Sloan’s departure, bullish long-term investors have been hoping for some resolve. Clarity of commentary is undoubtedly part of the wishlist that went undelivered as Scharf’s first earnings call registered a spike in deception to levels we haven’t seen from WFC since their 3Q17 call. We use Amenity's suite of NLP tools to explore the deception score and deception rate from 2015 to present to understand what level of clarity we can expect from Scharf's tenure.
