13:43 EDTMSEarnings Watch: Morgan Stanley to report after CFO departs
Morgan Stanley (MS) is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the open on Monday, April 20, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Morgan Stanley is an investment bank. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 78c on revenue of $9.17B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 72c-86c on revenue of $8.87B-$9.55B. LAST QUARTER: Morgan Stanley reported weaker than expected fourth quarter results. The company said that its results were adversely affected by "choppy market conditions," although it characterized the results as strong. On February 25, the bank agreed to pay $3.6B to the U.S. to settle claims related to residential mortgage-backed securities. On March 11, Morgan Stanley announced that it would repurchase $3.1B of its shares and raise its dividend to 15c per share from 10c per share. On March 24, the bank announced that its CFO, Ruth Porat, would resign to take a similar position at Google (GOOG). Morgan Stanley announced that it had chosen Jonathan Pruzan, the co-head of its Global Financial Institutions Group in Investment Banking, to succeed Porat. STREET RESEARCH: Two research firms were divided on the outlook for Morgan Stanley's Q1 results. On March 16, well-known analyst Dick Bove of Rafferty Capital wrote that the bank's Q1 results were not looking strong. Trade data from the Federal Reserve suggested that Morgan Stanley was losing ground in several key categories, with trading flat to down overall and investment banking not faring much better. However, Bove continued to identify the bank as one of his top picks for 2015. However, Susquehanna on April 7 raised its estimates for Morgan Stanley, citing a stronger fixed income performance, driven by rate and currency volatility. Morgan Stanley's Q1 results should improve nicely versus its Q4 performance, added the firm, which nonetheless reiterated a Neutral rating on the stock. PEER RESULTS: Goldman Sachs (GS) reported stronger than expected Q1 results, as its investment banking revenue rose 7% versus the same period a year earlier and its institutional client services revenue surged 23% year-over-year. JPMorgan (JPM) reported on Monday that its Q1 gross investment banking revenue from its commercial banking clients had soared 68%. PRICE ACTION: Morgan Stanley's stock is up 5% over the last three months and up over 10% over the last six months.

09:06 EDTROVIEngaged Capital says Rovi needs aligned shareholder representation
Engaged Capital, an investment firm specializing in small and mid-cap North American equities and beneficial owner of 550,000 shares of the common stock of Rovi, sent a letter to shareholders in connection with its campaign to elect three directors at the company's May 13 annual meeting, which states in part: "We believe the incumbent Board displays all the hallmarks of a broken and unaccountable governance structure that has incubated poor decision making and led to the continued destruction of shareholder value. We have engaged privately with the Board over many months and proposed a compromise on Board reconstitution that would give shareholders a voice in the boardroom. However, after the Board’s repeated failure to engage in a constructive manner, we lost confidence in their ability to act in the best interests of Rovi shareholders...In seeking minority Board representation, we have struck what we believe is a careful balance between adding fresh perspective and needed expertise to the Board, and maintaining a significant level of Board continuity."
