The financial index has only just started to do well. MS recently broke out to a new high since moving sideways for years. The outlook for bond trades is good with interest rates going up. At least for the next year, it should be a good investment.

The CEO has done a remarkable job. He owns its peers (JPM, Wells Fargo), but MS has the best business model and their acquisitions have been good. He regrets not buying this.

Financials are waiting for the U.S. yield curve to steepen and this is now happening. MS also benefits from underwriting which is accelerating. MS has also increased their space in the personal area--MS used to deal with the rich, top-end people in America, but now serve the common mainstream. Stick with it.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly MS is one of the world's largest investment banking, securities and wealth management companies. Recently reported revenues were up 16% over the year and earnings increased by 25%. Trading with an 8 PE, it is good value here. It pays a solid dividend, backed by a payout ratio of only 28% of cash flow. We would trade this with a $35 stop-loss, looking to hit analysts targets near $60 -- 25% upside. Yield 2.94% (Analysts’ price target is $59.63)

A chronically undervalued bank. Why does it trade so low? They've added huge assets thanks to the US$7 billion purchase of Eaton Vance. It's becoming less of a broker and more of a financial advisory firm which he likes. The CEO has done a great job.

It is a bank and not just a brokerage firm. After 2009 they shrunk their fixed income and commodities businesses because they were taking up a lot of capital. They have a large wealth management business that continues to execute well.

Safe dividend and its wealth management keep performing in zero interest rates? Its wealth management division in the US provides stable cash flow and doesn't depend much on interest rates, though other parts do. The payout is modest, so the dividend is safe. A core holding that's well-capitalized. Safe.
