Mr. Market, though off the day's highs, is the "world's fair." S&P 500 futures are now up by about 35 handles from the Fed's comments. Fixed income stronger; the iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.

On Fox, Warren Buffett says he'll remain silent on Wells Fargo (WFC) for now.

Doug Kass

His weak supervision and continued lack of accountability towards a problem that was likely systemic to the institution, His flatly denying and dismissing the notion that "cross selling" was at the core of management's objectives in order to improve profitability and get a higher stock price. That looks like a bald-faced lie as Wells Fargo allegedly cheated customers, The absence of a timely disclosure of an allegedly material fraudulent act, which was initially uncovered not by management but by the Los Angeles press, The fact that a senior member of management (whose principle responsibility was to supervise retail operations) has received a severance package greater than $100 million, without any apparent management consideration of a "clawback," That 5,300 low-paid employees have been let go and blamed by senior management as being "dishonest." Stumpf's explanation was that "they were talking to one another" -- and at a time when there were apparently no senior management firings entertained, Generally patronizing and poorly informed, even superficial, responses to the Congressional committee this morning, which largely hid behind a legal defense (e.g. his statements that "I am not on the compensation committee" or too many "I don't have that answer right now."). Watch What They Do, Not What They Say Unfortunately, not much in our domestic banking system has changed despite the lessons learned from the Great Recession of 2007-09, a time in which the global financial system almost went bankrupt. It is time for Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) to have a sit-down with the CEO of Wells Fargo (which is part of Jim Cramer's Action Alert PLUS). Stated simply, it is time for John G. Stumpf to go. I am avoiding Wells Fargo shares. Avoid Wells Fargo SEP 15, 2016 : 8:43 AM EDT "Everything we do is built on trust. It doesn't happen with one transaction, in one day on the job or in one quarter. It's earned relationship by relationship." --Wells Fargo's Visions and Values I promised several subscribers in the Comments Section that I would offer my views on Wells Fargo's (WFC) shares and on its management. The later will be a subject of a coming post that will include my reaction to CEO John Stumpf's weak defense on Jim "El Capitan" Cramer's "Mad Money" show. (Hint: The responsible members of senior management and of the board of directors should be forced out of the bank, post haste). Let me distill my view on WFC stock into one word: avoid. Wells Fargo's premium valuation is likely to be impaired over a period of time from the discovery of nearly two million fraudulent accounts. I have never really understood the premium valuation of the bank. To be sure, Wells Fargo has a vast and dominant franchise and deposit base. It is involved in one out of every three mortgages in the U.S. But, given that over the last five years the company's pretax income (before loan loss provisions) has made no progress, others may now question that premium valuation. Importantly, given the broad involvement of more than 5,000 employees, I would not be surprised if more untoward transactions were uncovered in discovery in the next several months, which would provide a further case for a contraction in the bank's valuation. Bottom line, I would stick with Bank of America (BAC) or Citigroup (C) if one is interested in exposure to the banking space. Buffett Will Likely Soon Break His Silence on Wells Fargo "Lose money for the firm and I will be understanding. Lose a shred of reputation for the firm and I will be ruthless." --Warren Buffett, Salomon Brothers congressional testimony And here is a contrary thought. Given the si

Once the Fed and BOJ are out of the way there should be some opportunities to be more aggressive.
