    What to Expect from Morgan Stanley in the Second Quarter

    Morgan Stanley (MS) is expected to post an EPS of $1.11 in the second quarter—an implied growth of 27.6% on a YoY (year-over-year) basis due to higher trading, asset management, and lower taxes. On a sequential basis, Morgan Stanley is expected to see a 23.0% decline in its earnings mainly due to a decline in volatility from highs in the first quarter. The earnings decline is partially offset by a rebound in holdings’ valuations and the expectation of higher performance fees.

    U.S. banks gain from Washington policy changes but trade worries loom

    Second-quarter earnings reports from three of the biggest U.S. banks on Friday showed the sector is benefiting from policy changes in Washington that have lowered their taxes, boosted interest rates and allowed them to buy back more stock. Investors were skeptical, worried that underlying businesses were not as strong as they could be and that tough talk from international leaders about trade tariffs and hardened borders could hurt their bottom lines. Shares of large bank stocks were down 0.7 percent at 1:30 p.m. ET, as measured by the S&P 500 Banks index (.SPXBK) after JPMorgan Chase & Co (:JPM - News), Citigroup Inc (:C - News) and Wells Fargo & Co (:WFC - News) reported second-quarter results.

    [$$] Morgan Stanley, Goldman Got Help From Fed on Stress Tests

    Federal Reserve officials told Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley that they were about to flunk a portion of the annual stress tests but offered them a deal to avoid an outright fail and continue paying billions to shareholders. In phone calls to executives of the Wall Street titans on June 21, regulators told them that to fully pass the test, they would have to cut almost in half the combined $16 billion they had hoped to pay out to shareholders, according to people familiar with conversations between the Fed and both banks. It also will boost a profitability measure that helps determine how much Goldman Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein and Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman are paid.

    Banks Might Benefit from the Improving Loan-to-Deposit Ratio

    The LDR (loan-to-deposit) ratio for the largest US banks—JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Wells Fargo (WFC), Citigroup (C), and U.S. Bancorp (USB)—rose in the first quarter. The ratio has been declining steadily since 2011 and only bucked the trend in the first quarter of this year. The ratios for five largest US banks range from 64% for JPMorgan Chase to 84% for U.S. Bancorp. The improving LDR ratio should boost banks’ (VFH) interest revenues in subsequent quarters.

    Morgan Stanley pays $3.6 million fine for weak investor protection rules

    Morgan Stanley agreed to pay a $3.6 million fine on Friday after regulators found it failed to have systems in place to help it detect and prevent the misappropriation of client funds, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said. Since 2009, Morgan Stanley has allowed brokers to initiate wire transfers of as much as $100,000 from a client's brokerage account into a third-party account so long as the adviser reported on an internal digital form that the client had requested the transfer over the phone or in person. Former Morgan Stanley broker Barry Connell was arrested in February 2017 and faces criminal charges in a federal court in New York related to the alleged misappropriations.
