Considerations

Add to position
–
Downsides


Between JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley, we have a fairly
sizable stake in the financial sector already
Banks are very dependent on the overall health of the
economy
–

The last three years were not very profitable due to the
decreased number of IPOs and mergers and acquisitions
Sell
–
Downsides


Company appears to be well positioned going forward
Both EPS and ratio analysis showed that there is growth left in
this stock as long as revenue growth materializes
Recommendation




Hold 400 shares of Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley operates in a fairly cyclical industry
and it appears that the next few years might bring
about an upturn
Must continue to monitor Morgan Stanley to see if
customer-focused strategy continues to generate
revenue
Must ensure that revenue growth and EPS growth
are maintainable and realistic
