Company strategy cont d2

Company Strategy (cont’d)

  • Fiscal 2004 – Looking forward

    • A strong economy next year is a critical driver for financial services firms

      • Individual level

        • Increased consumer wealth will increase credit card spending, which generates significant revenue for Morgan Stanley

      • Corporate level

        • Improving business prospects will increase the need for capital, both debt and equity

        • A stronger economy will reinvigorate the mergers and acquisition and IPO markets, which are very profitable activities for Morgan Stanley

    • The company seems dedicated to its client-focused strategy which should position it well in the upcoming year

Eps sensitivity

EPS Sensitivity

  • Sales have grown an average of only 2.39% over the last 5 years but EPS has grown at an average rate of 4.55% over the last 5 years

    • The five year revenue growth rate includes the boom of 1999-2000 as well as the less profitable 2001-2003 period

Combined sensitivity

Combined Sensitivity

  • Low P/E = 10

  • Current P/E in Market = 13

  • Sector P/E = 16

  • Wide range of prices when revenue growth and P/Es are sensitized

Dividend and growth rates

Dividend and Growth Rates

  • Comparable dividend yields but lower growth rates due to difficult last three years

Ratio analysis and valuation

Ratio Analysis and Valuation

  • See Excel



  • Add to position

    • Downsides

      • Between JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley, we have a fairly sizable stake in the financial sector already

      • Banks are very dependent on the overall health of the economy

        • The last three years were not very profitable due to the decreased number of IPOs and mergers and acquisitions

  • Sell

    • Downsides

      • Company appears to be well positioned going forward

      • Both EPS and ratio analysis showed that there is growth left in this stock as long as revenue growth materializes



  • Hold 400 shares of Morgan Stanley

  • Morgan Stanley operates in a fairly cyclical industry and it appears that the next few years might bring about an upturn

  • Must continue to monitor Morgan Stanley to see if customer-focused strategy continues to generate revenue

  • Must ensure that revenue growth and EPS growth are maintainable and realistic
