Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2019

Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) are lower this morning despite earnings that JMP’s Devin Ryan calls “solid.” He explains:

Bloomberg News

First look: solid 1Q16 results for Morgan Stanley when considering the backdrop; reiterate our Market Outperform rating and $36 price target. Morgan Stanley reported 1Q16 EPS of $0.55, well ahead of consensus of $0.46 and our estimate of $0.42. The outperformance came on both revenues (3% above) and expenses (2% below) in what was a pretty clean quarter, in our view. With respect to revenues, Institutional Securities were 7.5% above our estimate, primarily driven by better FIC trading (still down 54% YOY, but outperformed recent commentary from management, which potentially suggests a better revenue backdrop into quarter end). Investment Management revenues were also a bit better, offset by slightly softer GWM revenues as commissions appeared impacted by more muted retail engagement and three fewer trading days than the December quarter. Expenses outperformed across the board with a slightly lower comp ratio of 47.3% (vs. our 48% estimate) while non-comps were 7.5% below. Expenses appear clean in the quarter with little litigation impact. In aggregate, while the bar was lowered throughout the quarter, we are pleased with the result amidst the challenging operating backdrop…We will revisit our estimates following managements call, but reiterate our Market Outperform rating and $36 price target. Our price target assumes that the company will trade at ~0.95x our forward book value estimate (~10.5x forward earnings one year from now), which we believe is justified given our ~9% 2017 ROE estimate.
