Berkshire's Munger urges regulators to ease up on Wells Fargo

The Apple stock is now trading in positive territory in after-hours business. The conglomerate also upped its stake in BK by about 20% during the fourth quarter, buying a number of shares between $51 and $55. It provides other financial services through its subsidiaries engaged in various businesses, including wholesale banking, mortgage banking, consumer finance, equipment leasing, agricultural finance, commercial finance, securities brokerage and investment banking, computer and data processing services, investment advisory services, mortgage-backed securities servicing and venture capital investment.

Charlie Munger, the longtime business partner of fellow billionaire Warren Buffett, said he detests bitcoin and wouldn't have anything to do with the cryptocurrency. It helps investors in determining whether buying, selling or holding on to a stock would be beneficial for them.

Its shares closed in NY at $18.650, up 97 cents, or 5.5 percent. Cape Cod Five Cents Comml Bank stated it has 0.05% of its portfolio in Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC).

Meanwhile, Apple reported 13% growth in revenue year-over-year for its latest quarter, which ended December 30, 2017.

Regions Financial Corporation is maintained at an average hold rating by 26 stock analysts, and there are at least 1.77% of shares outstanding that are now legally short sold. Investors use this ratio to decide what multiple of earnings a share is worth. Apple's fortress balance sheet and the potential for upgrades in the next year could make this an especially good stock to stash away for your kids. Because they are required only four times a year, it's not clear exactly when Berkshire invested.

Earlier this year, the company lost as much as $2.4 billion on paper thanks to Wells Fargo's stock slumped, which occurred after the bank received a rare growth ban from the Federal Reserve. In the first quarter, Phillips 66 earned $385 million, and in the second quarter, it earned another $496 million.

"The company's diluted EPS for trailing twelve months was 7.57".
