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 significantly 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. The company’s efforts to lower balance sheet risk and strengthen wealth management operations along with cost saving initiatives will continue to support growth. Also, continued market volatility is expected to aid trading revenues. However, muted investment banking performance are expected to hurt the company’s top-line growth. Further, higher interest expenses mainly owing to rise in interest rates are expected to hurt its net interest income to some extent." (6/21/2018)
  • 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)
