Key points

  • MS stock is likely to beat expectations in Q1
  • The Bank’s EPS report in the last 2 quarters has beat earnings estimates

Analysts expect reports to beat estimates for the third consecutive time as Morgan Stanley stock is soaring. Investors will be waiting for the Q1 earnings report on April 16.

 Q4 2020, the investment bank was expected to post earnings of $1.29 per share, but reports came at $1.92 per share with revenue of $13.64 billion which was more than $2billon against estimates of $11.54billion. For Q3 2020, estimates were $1.26 per share, but the actual delivered at $1.59 per share.

While records have indicated the bank has maintained a good position in the next quarterly report, analysts expect Friday’s report to beat estimates. The company is expected to report Q1 earnings before the opening bell at $1.73 with a revenue estimate of $14.17 billion. The company is showing signs of progress as the global economy is gradually recovering from the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic. Morgan Stanley stock is also among the traders’ favourite, with more positives in previous quarters.

The bank also prevented financial turmoil to its Q1 report when it sold about $5billion in shares of Archegos stocks after the investment company placed heavy bets on US media and Chinese tech companies and failed to provide collateral as cover when the shares of these companies fell.

Looking at the Morgan Stanley stock, investors will also focus on guidance from the board on the company’s future projections and growth.
