BUY
BAC vs. MS He owns both. They're different banks: MS is far less sensitive to loan growth, as over 50% of revenues come from wealth management (they bought etrade and Eaton Vance). BAC is the US bank most sensitive to interest rate moves; their loan book is crucial to their growth. He likes both and both reported strongly last week. BAC has a slightly better valuation than MS, so it gets the edge.

BUY
He loves how it's transforming more into a wealth management business. They reported a top and bottom line beat yesterday. The stock has room to run, despite its recent run-up. They've made a big move into asset management, though still an investment bank. Expenses were far lower than expected. Shares rallied despite a downgrade. It trades at less than 14x 2022 earnings, which he predicts will be 20x earnings one day. A lot of room to run.

COMMENT
MS vs. V Likes banking in general in the US as well as in Canada, because the economy is improving and this should improve net interest margins. She owns JPM instead of MS, as they've been very well run over time, gorgeous balance sheets, diversified, doing well in capital markets. She likes Visa as well. It will benefit as payment volumes ramp up with more travel domestically and internationally. Since the pandemic, people are using their plastic cards more. Right now, between MS and V, she prefers Visa, as it's lagged the market and its long-term growth profile is more attractive.

BUY on WEAKNESS
They report Thursday. He expects amazing results. The banks have had a huge run-up, but are still behind the overall market's PE. If this gets hit week, he will buy more.
investment companies / funds
BUY
It got downgraded today by Oppenheimer. He disagrees. A boring stock can be a good stock, like MS. MS is consistently boring. The current CEO has turned this around; MS used to be a rollercoaster, rooted in bad mortgages from the Great Recession and paying a big fine for that. They bought Eaton Vance and Etrade to boost its wealth management business--smart.

BUY
MS vs. C Likes the banking sector, US banks in general, and both these names. Citi is at its 200-day MA, pretty cheap at below book value of 0.77, a diversified bank. MS price to book is 1.9x, has done well, with more growth so you're paying up for it, more into wealth management and institutional securities.

BUY
Was impressed by their e-trade acquisition, and likes MS's overall transformation.
investment companies / funds
BUY
MS is the best among US banks. It's not a bank anymore, but a wealth advisory service with investment banking on the side.
investment companies / funds
TOP PICK
Likes the financial sector. XLF only recently took out the highs from 2008. Wealth management has been a stellar grower. e-Trade has fuelled asset gains, strong in capital markets. Recently doubled dividend, which they'll continue to grow. Yield is 2.80%. (Analysts’ price target is $100.66)
investment companies / funds
TOP PICK
Wealth management supplies more than 50% of revenues. Purchased e-Trade and Eaton Vance. Reported very strong earnings. Trading at 14x earnings, very attractive. CEO is a very good operator. Not exposed to loan books or interest spreads, not as sensitive to the economy. Yield is 2.74%. (Analysts’ price target is $100.66)
investment companies / funds
COMMENT
Many feel this stock has gotten ahead of itself, up 51% YTD and trades at 14x earnings. It's no longer a traditional investment bank, but rather a wealth advisor for all sorts of demographics which is a better business. To compare, the other big investment bank, Goldman-Sachs trades at 7x earnings and up 55% YTD.
investment companies / funds
BUY
Reported a blow-out quarter last week and rallied a bit last week. CEO is making MS more stable with stable earnings. That's why he bought Etrade and Eaton Vance. Their wealth management and investment management business saw $250 billion in inflows in the first half of 2021. It's the most expensive bank stock for good reason. It's as risk-free as you can get. He bought on today's sell-off.
investment companies / funds
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jul 23/20, Up 89%) Reports tomorrow. Not as reliant on a loan book as others. Half of revenues come from wealth management, which has done extremely well. Doubled dividend. Over-capitalized.
