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.

He has owned it. A great investment bank, but now there are few private equity deals and no IPOs. They have a lot of overnight cash from clients, but very low interest rates will earn little here. Little money to be made here in this crisis. Wait for capital markets to return.

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.
