Wells Fargo profit rises 11 percent as costs fall
Jan 14 (Reuters) - Wells Fargo & Co, the biggest U.S. mortgage lender, reported an 11 percent rise in fourth-quarter profit, helped by the elimination of thousands of jobs in its home-loan business in the second half of the year.
Net income applicable to common shareholders rose to $5.37 billion, or $1.00 per share, from $4.86 billion, or 91 cents per share, a year earlier, the fourth-biggest U.S. bank said on Tuesday.
