(A Top Pick Mar 21/19, Up 15%) Trades at a cheap less than 10x earnings. He likes the CEO's straightforward style. They've built their wealth management services by just buying E-trade.

Dilution is coming. Longer term, the e-Trade acquisition is good for both companies. Industry is consolidating, and you have to have scale. A good move. e-Trade has expertise and is a steady business.

Low rates will compress margins. Wealth management is a source of growth. If you own, continue to hold. She owns JP Morgan instead based on management and historical track record.

He owns BAC instead. In contrast to Goldman Sachs, MS is an institutional investment bank with a large wealth and asset management arm. MS has reduced the capital in their fixed income business (which demands a lot of capital), more effectively than GS has. So, MS has executed much better on that side. Not an expensive stock. If the market does really well, MS's brokerage arm should do well too.

Has moved higher with value and cyclical stocks. Technically, he's neutral on it. Would err to not owning a cyclical bank at this point of the cycle. At some point, we're going to have a slowdown, and you want to be prepared.

An investment bank with strong wealth and asset management businesses. What they do that's different from its peers is that MS reduced its capital allocation into their fixed income business (whereas Goldman Sachs did not and have suffered more). Also, the brokerage and asset management operations in have done very well (better than Goldman). This makes MS better than Goldman Sachs. This and JP Morgan are more diversified than their peers.

More in wealth management than retail banking. They are more exposed to the capital market but less asset liability exposure. The cost is down and earnings have been great.

They became one of the largest wealth managers in the US. It is a very steady cash flow business. It sets them apart and is a more consistent part of the business. The stock is cheap. Global banks have all suffered with flattening yield curves.

Whether you should average down depends on individual circumstances. The concept is ill-founded. The market doesn't care what the average price is. Instead, you could diversify and put your money into another constructive company. If you're just making yourself feel better, think about it carefully.

It is getting tainted by the same brush from flattened yield curves / declining interest rates. However it has less exposure to interest rates than most large US banks. It is the largest wealth manager. You can buy it with a multiple of 9 and a growing dividend and earnings. It is worth 50% more over three years. (Analysts’ price target is $53.26)

Don't buy it now. He once owned this. No catalysts now to move this stock up. Their earnings come from cash on client deposits, but interest rates are falling. To like this, you need to believe that rates will go higher and a lot of fixed income and equity issuance.

Years after the Great Recssion, the US government has removed some regulations, freeing US banks. This leads to stock buybacks and rising dividends. MS is not a bad bank, but he prefers JPM. MS has gotten too expensive. The banks now make money in managing wealth, not so much lending money in a time of declining interest rates. You should own at least one US bank.
