Today's quick video takes a closer look at Morgan Stanley (MS) ahead of their earnings report. This financial giant is looking to ride the wave of similar companies which have already reported and saw solid results, hopefully pushing MS to fresh 52 week highs in the process.

Fortunately for MS investors, the company is riding a nice streak when it comes to beating earnings estimates, while the company is also surging so far in 2016. Additionally, MS has a nice industry rank which includes a top 40% overall ranking, always good news heading into a report.

However, investors should note that earnings estimates have been sliding heading into the release, and MS has fallen into 'hold' territory within the past week. MS also has a VGM score of 'D', so fundamentals aren't that strong for this name either. This could be a time where rising tides lift this boat, but a stronger earnings outlook will definitely be needed to boost MS back to previous heights.
