What are Wall Street analysts saying about Morgan Stanley stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Morgan Stanley stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Morgan Stanley's shares have underperformed the industry over the past six months. Yet, the company possesses an impressive earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in each of the trailing four quarters. While the company’s efforts to strengthen wealth management operations, focus on corporate lending and normalized levels of trading activities will continue to support revenues, slowdown in debt underwriting will likely hurt the company's investment banking performance to some extent. Also, because of the company's continued investment in franchise, expenses are likely to remain elevated. Thus, higher costs are expected to hurt bottom line growth in the near term." (9/21/2018)
  • 2. Vining Sparks analysts commented, "We believe that MS’ return-on-tangible common equity should improve by 4 to 5 percentage points in 2018E which should push its excess return-on-equity to 6 to 7 percentage points and its price-to-tangible book value to 200%. Thus, we believe MS now has more than a 20% potential total return from this its current share price level." (4/18/2018)
