17:09 EDTSLCAU.S. Silica to acquire Cadre Services for $98M cash
U.S. Silica Holdings announced that it has signed a stock purchase agreement to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Cadre Services for approximately $98M in cash. Closing is expected by the end of the month. The purchase price of $98M, less the net present value of approximately $14M in deferred tax assets, results in $84M of net consideration. Adjusted LTM EBITDA of $11.1M represents a purchase price multiple of 7.6 times. Projected 2015 Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $18M after synergies and the benefit of a full year of sales from the March capacity expansion represents a purchase price multiple of 4.7 times. This would result in Adjusted EPS accretion of 11c-13c per share in 2015.

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.
