09:32 EDTMSMorgan Stanley fined $2M by FINRA for short interest reporting, rule violations
FINRA announced that it has fined Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC $2M for short interest reporting and short sale rule violations that spanned a period of more than six years, and for failing to implement a supervisory system reasonably designed to detect and prevent such violations. FINRA found that Morgan Stanley, over several years, failed to completely and accurately report its short interest positions in certain securities involving billions of shares. FINRA also found that the firm's supervisory system was deficient because it failed to detect and prevent these violations over an extended period of time. FINRA found that over a seven-year period, Morgan Stanley included positions from the accounts of non-broker-dealer affiliates in a number of aggregation units when determining each unit's net position. FINRA also found that the firm's supervisory system was not reasonably designed to detect and prevent such violations. In concluding this settlement, Morgan Stanley neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.

BofA/Merrill raised Buy rated JPMorgan's price target to $73 following a meeting with Chairman Jamie Dimon. The analyst believes earnings surprises are likely and the market is over-discounting the impact of regulation. BofA/Merrill expects JPMorgan to benefit from its multi-dimensional model, EPS sensitivity to rising interest rates, and a shift in Fed monetary policy which will drive bond market volatility.
