14:57 EDTMSEarnings Preview: Morgan Stanley to report amid optimism on Wealth Management
Morgan Stanley (MS) is scheduled to report second quarter earnings before the open on Thursday, July 17 with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET. Morgan Stanley is a bank holding company. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 55c on revenue of $8.2B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 52c-64c on revenue of $7.58B-$8.65B. Morgan Stanley (MS) reported stronger than expected first quarter results, as the company's revenue rose to $8.9B from $8.2B. The company's wealth management unit generated pre-tax income of $691M, versus $597M in the same period a year earlier. Morgan Stanley's investment management unit saw its pre-tax income from continuing operations rise to $263M from $187M, while the pre-tax income of its institutional Securities division rose $1.4B, up from $799M. Morgan Stanley's wealth management business will continue growing and the business' return on equity will eventually be well over 10%, said the company's CEO, Tom Gorman last month, according to The New York Times. But declines in the bank's fixed income revenues may make it harder for its securities businesses to exceed a 10% return on equity, and the firm has significantly reduced its trading operations, the newspaper quoted the CEO as saying. PEERS: On July 15, Goldman Sachs reported stronger than expected results, as the bank's investment banking unit saw its net revenue rise 15% year-over-year, while the net revenues generated by its Institutional Client Services unit dropped 11%. But Goldman's investing and lending unit saw its net revenues surge 46% year-over-year. Citigroup (C), on July 14, reported higher than expected Q2 EPS excluding certain items but lower than expected revenue. Revenue from Citi's Institutional Client Group dropped 11%, as revenue from fixed income and equity markets fell. STREET RESEARCH: On July 10, research firm Bernstein recommended Morgan Stanley's stock due to its exposure to high margin investment banking. Bernstein also liked Morgan Stanley because of its exposure to wealth management. PRICE ACTION: Morgan Stanley is up almost 9% over the last three months and it has surged over 23% in the last twelve months.

Noble Group (NOBGY) CEO Yusuf Alireza disputed allegations about the company’s accounting practices, particularly that it is hiding the true nature of its debt and improperly valuing its 13% stake in Australian coal miner Yancoal, the Wall Street Journal reports. In a letter to former longtime Morgan Stanley (MS) banker Michael Dee, Alireza said that the company’s evaluation of Yancoal is “reasonable and consistent with market practice and accounting policies” and that “any suggestion otherwise is ill-informed and factually incorrect,” the report says. “As an associate company, we must rely on a cash flow model to value our stake, which is consistent with market practice in the mining industry,” the Noble CEO added, the report says.
