Morgan Stanley's trouble managing wealth and investments was offset by strong brokerage business
Morgan Stanley handily beat second-quarter earnings and revenue expectations as its brokerage business was booming, but where the bank had a little trouble was with its money management businesses. Wealth management revenue rose to $4.33 billion from $4.15 billion in the same period a year ago, but missed the FactSet consensus of $4.48 billion, while investment management revenue growth to $691 million from $665 million shy of expectations of $707.9 million. Within wealth management, transactional revenue fell to $691 million from $766 million, amid lower fixed income revenue and lower gains on investments associated with certain employee deferred compensation plans, while compensation expense increased to $2.4 billion from $2.3 billion. Within investment management, asset management revenue rose to $610 million from $539 million, but investment revenue fell to $55 million from $125 million. Meanwhile, revenue in institutional securities, which includes equities and fixed income sales and trading, rose to $5.71 billion from $4.76 billion, well above the FactSet consensus of $4.60 billion. The stock, which surged 2.6% in premarket trade, has lost 7.7% over the past three months while the S&P 500 has gained 3.7%.
