Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE:WFC): Current price $41.75

Wells Fargo persuaded United States District Judge Jesse M. Furman in New York Tuesday to turn aside some claims against it in a lawsuit brought by the federal government accusing the lender of home mortgage fraud because they were filed too late. In 2012, the U.S. sued the bank, alleging that it made reckless loans that caused losses for a federal insurance program when borrowers defaulted, seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages.

Furman ruled that while the federal government’s statutory claims against the lender could stand, any legal injury claims based on events that occurred before June 2009 were too late to be actionable. Besides that, he also dismissed mistake-of-fact and unjust enrichment claims.
