Money Life with Chuck Jaffe

Scott Wren, senior global market strategist at the Wells Fargo Investment Institute, says that he expects the Standard and Poor's 500 to be between 3,400 and 3,600 by the end of 2021, meaning that the market will be volatile without a lot of upside as it heads back toward a fully functioning economy. Wren noted that economic data has been better than expected, which has helped the market and investors avoid the worst of worst-case outcomes. Also on the show, author Scott McLean discusses the importance of getting your personal team of financial advisers to work together and the cost of having planners, tax preparers and others who are not on the same page, and Patrick Healey of Caliber Financial Partners discusses the barbell investment strategy he uses for stock portfolios in the Market Call.

Read more

Last week, Salesforce released its State of Marketing Report and we wanted to dive deep into some of the insights it held. To do that, we called our friend Jamie Moldafsky, the CMO of Wells Fargo, who joined us to break down some of the key points of the report and how the findings may have shifted due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected industries around the world. Jamie talked about budget, innovation, engaging with customers and how all of those areas have been impacted in these extraordinary times. 

Main Takeaways:

  • Budgets may be held flat, but the areas that are seeing more money revolve around listening to the customer and communicating effectively 
  • Creating a cohesive journey is more important than ever as more and more people are spending the majority of their time on devices
  • Even though personalized, one-to-one communication is the goal, customers still want to feel part of a larger community
  • Data is integral in understanding where your customers are in terms of state of mind and needs

Episode 43 – Jay Bryson, Chief Economist, Wells Fargo

#hottakeoftheday
Episode artwork
Read more

Today, I’m joined by the acting Chief Economist of Wells Fargo bank, Jay Bryson.  I think it’s fair to say that at very few points in history, have an understanding of the machinations of our economic system been so interesting or relevant.  What is the role of the Federal reserve?  What does it mean to be the buyer of last resort?  What happens to the bonds they bought?  Municipal government spending?  Inflation or deflation and why does it matter?  What happens to unemployment?  Does the debt matter?  How about tax rates?  Spending?

All the issues.  Laid out in a way you can think about “why is this the forecast and what does it mean to my future?

I hope you enjoy the conversation.

Read more

Jamie Moldafsky views herself as a customer champion, and it’s not just because she’s occupied the CMO chair at one of America’s largest banks for nearly a decade. It’s partially because of the chances she's taken in her career, but more so her desire to impact her customers every day. On this episode of Marketing Trends, the Wells Fargo Chief Marketing Officer sits down to discuss her passion for marketing, how Wells Fargo is working to treat their 70 million customers as individuals, and how listening to and empathizing with your customers during times of crisis could pay big dividends down the road.

3 Takeaways:

  • Customer centricity is at the forefront right now. The ability to build a relationship and serve customers at every point of their journey is more important now than ever
  • At the beginning of a crisis, you have to focus on where you want to be when you emerge, and then let your company's values and products guide you
  • The challenge is how to get products that people need, want and love, but also build a brand that people love and want to associate with

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“We have to recognize that there's shelter in place and other things happening that have changed the way we do business. But we're absolutely open for business and serving customers.” – Michael DeVito

“We're processing and underwriting loans in remote ways – in ways we never even imagined we would be doing it.” – Michael DeVito

“The good news to this situation is that you have a financial system that's able to lean in and help, unlike maybe the last time around when the financial system was not as strong and not able to be a source of strength.” – Michael DeVito

“Try to take the long view, try to gather as much information as you can and assess and adapt. The world's not going to go back to what it was, it's going to go to something new. And there'll be new opportunities as a result of that. And the most adaptive of us – the most adaptive companies, the most adaptive teams, the most adaptive people – they're going to be the winners.” – Michael DeVito

“Assess and adapt – that’s the Navy SEAL way.” – Brian Buffini

“People want to be homeowners; we know they want to own homes. And when you think about that, there's just this desire to have a place for your family and a place to gather. And we'll do that again. We'll be gathering with family and friends again, you know, it's just going to be a window of time but we’re going to do it again.”  – Michael DeVito

2.25.20 Personal preparation for economic slowdown; Wells Fargo settlement; Best value supermarkets

The Clark Howard Podcast

The coronavirus is spreading but know fatality rates are very low. It is creating enormous impact on economies around the world. The U.S. travel industry is hard hit. Airline and cruise line stocks are down and Expedia is laying off 3,000 people. Expect more lay off announcements as part of a response to economic slowdown. It’s unlikely we’ll follow much of the rest of the world into a recession cycle this year, because it’s an election year. But the tremendous job engine we’ve seen in the last 9 years will slow, pause or reverse. This is our signal to do what we can to prepare by getting our finances in order. Rethink impulse purchases. Build up a reserve of cash. Consider how you’d handle fewer work hours or a lay off. We may go into a growth recession, wherein technically the economy is still growing but the job market is weak. This is a yellow caution light moment in the economy. Interest rates are an economic tell more than stocks, and expectations are for lower interest rates moving forward. Look at what you’re spending and what you owe. Think through what you can do to get your finances in order to prepare.


Wells Fargo committed criminal acts against its own customers for a full generation, with cheating scandals that go back to 1998 according to Federal prosecutors. In the court filing they only admitted to unlawfully misusing customers’ sensitive, personal information. They paid a $3B fine and avoided criminal conviction, prosecution deferred. If Wells Fargo doesn’t engage in anymore such activity over the next 36 months they will not face criminal prosecution. WF engaged in massive ID theft, cheated their auto loan and mortgage customers and cheated their checking and investing customers over a generation and no one is going to prison. If you rob a bank, you get 20 years. But if a bank robs you, the executive leaves with $millions in their private jets for the country club – no jail.


Around 5 regional supermarket chains have filed for bankruptcy over the last month. Many will disappear. Americans have changed our profile on how we buy foods, now more price focused. Supermarkets at all price points are pushing private labels more than ever. Most feared is Aldi – which is around 93% private label. An industry survey reveals Aldi is the cheapest place to shop, with a 40% price advantage over traditional mainstream supermarkets. Competitors are cutting hours to lower their costs. New England based Market Basket follows, WinCo is 3. Lidl is 4 in pricing followed by Trader Joe’s, a corporate sibling to Aldi. Amazon is also trying to complete. They’ve just opened their first of what they hope to be a chain of cashier free stores. They reportedly intend to sell this technology platform to other retailers to eliminate check-out lines, a convenience for shoppers and cost saver for retailers.
