    Is Teva Pharmaceuticals Stock a Buy?

    Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE: TEVA) is a well known generic drugmaker that's attracted the attention of a number of well-known investors in the past. Most notably, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway bought shares of the company a number of years ago due, in no small part due to how cheap the stock was at the time. Teva's business can be split up into two main areas: its generics business and its own branded drug products.

    Wells Fargo Stock Is Too Cheap

    Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) is a tremendous bargain today. Wells Fargo stock, which was trading at $26.30 this afternoon, is selling for just 80% of its tangible book value per share (TBVPS) of $32.90.Source: Ken Wolter / Shutterstock.com To put it succinctly, that valuation is simply too low. Let's assume the very worst happens: somehow Wells Fargo will have to write off so many loans that its book value falls to its present stock price.First of all, that suggests that loans worth 17.3% of the whole company's shareholder value will be written off. Since its book value is now $182.7 billion, under that scenario, $31.5 billion of loans will go under. That means that the bank will have to assume that the loans will never be repaid and write them off as charge-offs. That seems almost impossible.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsEven during the financial crisis in 2008, Wells Fargo's book value did not decline. It actually increased from 2007 to 2008 and through 2009. So contemplating a 17.3% decline in the bank's book value seems almost absurd. But that is how the stock market is pricing WFC stock today.Another reason why the price today seems out of whack is that even in the last recession, the bank's stock price got down to about $12 per share. But its book value was $16.09 per share, according to Value Line Research. * 7 Red-Hot Vaccine Stocks Racing to Develop a Coronavirus Cure Wells Fargo stock did not change hands for 75% of the bank's book value for very long. When the economy started to improve, it quickly shot up to 100% of book value per share and then rose further.The economy is now starting to improve. The bank's stock price should soon start to reflect that reality. Based on Wells Fargo's present TBVPS of $32.09, the stock looks poised to gain about 22%. The Bank's Dividend Yield Implies a Potential Gain of 41%Wells Fargo pays an annual dividend of $2.04 per share. On April 28, it declared a quarterly dividend of 51 cents per share. Its dividend yield stands at 7.5%.But the company has not decided to cut its dividend. It has made no mention of doing so, even though it suspended its share buybacks.Analysts, on average, expect its earnings per share to come in at $1.43 this year. But that includes a whopping $3 billion reserve hit (equivalent to almost 73 cents per share) to the bank's earnings. However, if the bank does not take such a hit, it will have enough funds to cover its dividend. Its EPS for 2021 is expected to be $2.58, according to Seeking Alpha. So it will be able to cover its dividend next year.Therefore, I don't believe the bank will cut its dividend this quarter. Even if it does, I doubt whether its dividend will stay below its current level for very long.Therefore, based on Wells Fargo's historical dividend yield, at what price should the stock be trading? According to Seeking Alpha, its average dividend yield in the past four years was 3.49%.That indicates that the stock should be trading at $58.45 (i.e. $2.04 divided by 3.49%), not $26.30. But let's assume that the stock's current yield should be 50% higher than its historical level. After all, the economy will undergo a U-shaped recovery, and it will take awhile before the stock recovers.That implies the dividend yield now should be 5.5% or so (halfway between 3.5% and 7.5%). That means the stock should be at least $37 per share. That represents a gain of 41%. Merging the Two Implied Values for Wells Fargo StockAs we have seen, the true value for Wells' stock, based on its book value per share, should be $32.09. That's about 22% above today's price.Using a modified historical dividend yield approach, the stock is worth $37 per share, a gain of 41%.The average of these two target prices is $34.55 per share. So look for the shares to gain 31% over the next year or even earlier.One positive catalyst for the shares could be the June release of the company's stress tests by the Federal Reserve. I wrote about that in my earlier article, which was published last month. I don't believe the Federal Reserve is going to force the bank to cut its dividend to preserve capital.Therefore, Wells Fargo stock seems to provide conservative investors with a large margin of safety. That's especially true now because it sells for such a huge discount to its tangible book value.As of this writing, Mark Hake, CFA does not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Wells Fargo reveals new risk management structure

    The company said it would also search for CROs for its commercial, consumer and small business, and investment banking arms and also for its wealth management unit. Since taking over the scandal-plagued bank late last year, Chief Executive Charlie Scharf has shaken up its leadership and overhauled the bank's business lines. The bank has had to contend with a federal investigation, a dozen consent orders and an unprecedented Federal Reserve cap on its balance sheet growth as the fallout of a 2016 sales practices scandal.

    Wells Fargo CEO Says Crisis Makes Staying Under Asset Cap Harder

    (Bloomberg) -- It “hasn’t been easy” for Wells Fargo & Co. to operate under an asset cap as the bank faces a flurry of deposits and credit-line draws tied to the coronavirus pandemic, Chief Executive Officer Charlie Scharf said.The San Francisco-based lender has had to take substantial actions to get below the cap, including moving some deposits outside the company, Scharf said at an AllianceBernstein Holding LP virtual conference Friday.The asset cap is “unfortunate, especially in an environment like this, but it’s a fact of life, and we’re more focused than ever on doing the work that’s necessary to get it behind us,” Scharf said. “It’s very, very clear what has to get done.”The Federal Reserve in 2018 limited Wells Fargo’s growth until it addressed lapses following a series of scandals. Scharf has declined to forecast when the asset cap would be lifted, but has cautioned that the bank still has a lot of work to do. Scharf said Friday that the cap is just one of 12 public consent orders Wells Fargo has to satisfy, with all of them being “extremely important.”Here are other takeaways from Scharf’s remarks:The timing and pace of the recovery, as well as Wells Fargo’s ability to improve its results, will determine the appropriate dividend level for the bank, Scharf said. Its capital base is strong, but earnings were weak in the first quarter and will remain so this quarter, he said.The buildup in Wells Fargo’s reserves will likely be “quite significant” in the second quarter as expectations are worse today than they were at the end of March, Scharf said, cautioning that many unknowns remain.Expenses are “way too high,” Scharf said, adding that Wells Fargo will probably have more than $500 million in unanticipated costs in the second quarter related to the pandemic.Scharf said he hopes to create a road map for the company by the end of the year. The early days of the Covid-19 crisis made his business reviews difficult, he said, but Wells Fargo remains “as committed as ever to getting the work done.”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(NYSE: PFE) and Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (NYSE: BMY).Instead of Oxford Industries Inc (NYSE: OXM), Cramer would rather buy PVH Corp (NYSE: PVH).Cramer likes Amgen, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMGN) and its new oncological franchise.He prefers Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) over Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC). He believes AMD will take some market share from Intel with its new chips.Cramer said the CEO of General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) is doing a fantastic job against tremendous circumstances, but he doesn't see the investment in the stock as a diversification strategy.Cramer likes SpartanNash Co (NASDAQ: SPTN) a lot.
