Wells Fargo Projected Losses Half That of Fed’s in Stress Test

Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) estimated that loan losses in a worst-case scenario would be about half as much as what the Federal Reserve projected in an annual stress test.

Write-offs at the San Francisco-based bank would amount to $26.8 billion over a nine-quarter period ended Dec. 31, 2015, the company said today in a statement. The Fed estimated that Wells Fargo’s loan losses would total $55.1 billion in the hypothetical situation.
