This is the type of "news" that is really not news at all..it's shineola..a CEO talking his book.

Real news would be "Wells Fargo repays all TARP funds without cutting dividend".

Remember the stress tests, the govt made them raise capital even though more competent analysts like Warren Buffett said that it was ridiculous.


The dividend cut was a means of avoiding yet even more capital to be raised.


So, in that light what do you dislike about their dividend cut?
