Detailed Analysis

Guru Score: 81%

Determine the Classification:

MS is considered a "True Stalwart", according to this methodology, as its earnings growth of 18.42% lies within a moderate 10%-19% range and its annual sales of $37,953 million are greater than the multi billion dollar level.This methodology looks for the "Stalwart" securities to gain 30%-50% in value over a two year period if they can be purchased at an attractive price based on the P/E to Growth ratio. MS is attractive if MS can hold its own during a recession.

Yield adjusted P/E to Growth (PEG) ratio: [PASS]

The Yield-adjusted P/E/G ratio for MS (.62), Based on the average of the 3 and 4 year historical EPS growth rates, is O.K.


The EPS for a stalwart company must be positive. MS's EPS ($2.96) would satisfy this criterion.

Total Debt/Equity Ratio: [NEUTRAL]

MS is a financial company so debt to equity rules are not applied to determine the company's financial soundness.


This methodology uses the Equity/Assets Ratio as a way to determine a financial intermediary's health, as it is a better measure than the Debt/Equity Ratio. MS's Equity/Assets ratio (9%) is healthy and above the minimum 5% this methodology looks for, thus passing the criterion.


This methodology uses Return on Assets as a way to measure a financial intermediary's profitability. MS's ROA (.32%) is below the minimum 1% that this methodology looks for, thus failing the criterion.
