NEW YORK - Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE:WFC) shares continued their ascent today, marking a second consecutive day of gains in a broader market upswing that also elevated the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The stock closed at $42.84, reflecting a 1.81% increase from the previous session.

The bank's performance stood out as it remained $6 shy of its annual high reached on February 14th, yet demonstrated resilience amidst a mixed banking sector. In comparison, U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB) experienced a more robust rise of 2.85%, although two of its preferred series saw declines ranging from 0.14% to 0.57%.

Investor engagement in Wells Fargo was notably high, with trading volume reaching 17.1 million shares, surpassing the 50-day average and signaling heightened market activity for the financial institution. This surge comes despite the stock's distance from its yearly peak, indicating investor confidence in Wells Fargo's trajectory amid market fluctuations.
