COMMENT
Morgan Stanley
If we're going into a recession, not typically a company that's going to see 52-week highs. It has hit a 6-month high. Once we cycle through January/February, it will be at a 52-week high if it holds at this price.

WEAK BUY
Morgan Stanley
A decade ago, was in the same position as GS is in now. Started investing in wealth and asset management ten years ago. So, weakness in one set of earnings was offset by strength in another.

BUY
Morgan Stanley
They have aggressively moved into wealth management, which is more consistent than traditional investment banking. He expects a strong quarter on Tuesday.

PARTIAL BUY
Morgan Stanley
They spent years transitioning from an investment bank to an asset manager, a far steadier, safer business, but held hostage to the market. That's why their AUM took a hit last year, but 2023 will see a recovery if the Fed stops tightening in the second half. They can't do worse than last year. Earnings are coming back. PEG ratio is under 0.9. Maybe wait until they report next week.

BUY
Morgan Stanley
Has long owned this. Wealth management and trading have been driving revenues and growth.

DON'T BUY
Morgan Stanley
Good job transitioning since financial crisis to be less cyclical. Strong wealth management platform, traditional capital markets business. Will get hit by economic slowdown. 13x earnings. His preference is in alternative asset management, such as KKR or BAM, as they're in better position to capitalize on market volatility.

HOLD
Morgan Stanley
Hold it. Pays a 3.5% yield and still doing well.

PARTIAL BUY
Morgan Stanley
Though he's bearish long term, an investor can nibble away here. Small caps are a good place to be, because of less exposure to the strong US dollar. Also, supply chain woes are easing. So, he has been adding to Goldman Sachs, Bank of American and Morgan Stanley. The market can move higher (short term). Caveat: Gas prices are up again, and inflation remains ridiculously high.

BUY
Morgan Stanley
Especially likes its wealth management. Very good operator.

HOLD
Morgan Stanley
Shares plunged over 5% today after they reported, but the market overreacted. Net interest income was up 22% YOY. However, they had a rough quarter. Revenues and earnings both missed. Bad. Investment banking and trading were awful. Hold and be patient. Pays a 4.1% dividend yield.

WEAK BUY
Morgan Stanley
When stocks inevitably turn around, you will see a bounce in both their wealth management businesses. Until then, trading revenues will be challenged in this environment. He is expecting only tepid earnings next week. Guidance from CEO's will be tepid.

TOP PICK
Morgan Stanley
Historically highly cyclical, but they're moving more into wealth management. 50% of revenues now come from wealth management. So it's done well, despite no IPOs and little M&A activity. Buying back stock. About 10% ROC. In on Tesla's Twitter deal. Nice yield of 3.78%. (Analysts’ price target is $94.46)

WAIT
Morgan Stanley
For US banks, mortgages originate at the community banks and then move up the channel and can be sold. MS participates in this. Income from these is largely transactional. If transactions slow, as in a rising interest rate environment, this would be a revenue headwind, and you'll see a spike in non-performing loans. US banks will trade down. But when we bottom out, there will be a significant opportunity. Wouldn't touch a US bank now.

PAST TOP PICK
Morgan Stanley
(A Top Pick Aug 18/21, Down 6%) More than 50% of revenues come from wealth management after absorbing Eaton Vance and Etrade. Trades at 10x earnings. Will do well as the economy improves. Run by a tough CEO.

PAST TOP PICK
Morgan Stanley
(A Top Pick Aug 19/21, Down 7%) Got stopped out. He'd buy again here. Asset management and trading business very strong. Great job building out capital markets business. If you believe the next leg of a bull market is ahead of us, you want exposure to capital markets. Outperformed the market from April to the June lows with rising RSI.
