U.S. banks have sold off because the net interest margin has compressed. Even if interest rates rise, there'll be a drag, because this compression continues. MS is a well-run bank long-term, and current levels are attractive. But he prefers other US banks like BAC which has a more diversified footprint than MS.

It is really a business of trading and asset management. They have over $2.5 trillion under management. He sees this as being less volatile than competitors as a result. He likes it.

US banks are on sale right now. Has morphed from global investments to largest wealth manager in US, a very stable business. Trading at 9x earnings. Incredibly well capitalized, stock buybacks, and increasing dividend. Going to be a dividend grower over the next few years. At this valuation, comfortable stepping in.

Morgan Stanley vs. Goldman Sachs They're similar--they're in investment banking, but he prefers MS with its cheaper valuation with steadier earnings growth and less earnings volatility. Goldman is more into investment banking which is vulnerable to a market downturn, thus a little more volatile. Overall, he is light U.S. banks: there's slower loan growth and the cost of loaning money has risen along with interest rates. Analysts have been too optimistic about American banks' earnings growth going forward.

The earnings they reported were quite strong. The US financials have been weak this year. There is still concern about the US economy a year or 2 out. He favours Bank of America.

It lagged the US market this year. They still have a lot of decent transactional business but their future is in asset management, which is a slow business. They are doing a very good job on that side. He thinks it has a long way to go.

The U.S. market is outperforming Canada, so he prefers financials there than here. MS had a recent pullback, but feels it will do well going forward. The U.S. financials will move in a pack. You should get a decent return in MS in the next 12 months.

(Past Top Pick, August 17, 2017, Up 11%) There's fear out there over the flat yield curve and of course an inverted yield curve. Yes, we are in a low-interest rate environment, but the banks have changed from a decade ago. They can now money on a flat yield curve. In fact, they can make a lot of money just with rising rates, without a rising yield curve. He likes the banks in the U.S. and Canada.

He would stick with the big banks pure play more than the capital markets. Over the short term particularly more likely to see an upward movement on the money centered banks as they have underperformed recently.

It's testing its 100-week moving average which is appealing. $45 would be its bottom, and it's currently at $48. It's currently an attractive entry point. US bank de-regulation helps and, for whatever reason, US banks briefly fell out of favour. Take advantage of it. (Analysts' price target: $60.56 )

An inexpensive stock. MS has a strong wealth management business and huge retail brokerage business that have really helped them. However, MS doesn't really have a retail banking franchise, so they lose that cushion in times of volatility. That said, this is one of the top investment banks around. They've enjoyed good numbers. You can do well with this. Good stock, but he prefers the more retail-oriented BAC.
