Sept. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Wells Fargo & Co., the biggest U.S. home lender, had its credit ratings cut by Moody’s Investors Service, which cited “a decrease in the probability that the U.S. government would support the bank, if needed.”

Moody’s downgraded the long-term ratings of the holding company’s senior debt to A2 from A1, according to a statement today. The outlook remains negative on the senior long-term ratings, indicating another cut may be ahead for the San Francisco-based lender.
