Bulletin Board
  • See April On the Markets from the Global Investment Committee featuring

    • "Seventh Inning Stretch" We expect US equities to continue to rise in line with earnings growth, says Michael Wilson, chief investment officer of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. That means returns could be closer to 7% or 8% rather than the 20%-plus average of the past five years.

    • "Still Prefer Developing to Emerging Markets" Morgan Stanley & Co. equity strategists say the best opportunities this year are in the developed markets, especially Europe and Japan. They expect the emerging markets to continue to underperform.

    • "ContagEM: Could It Be Worse Than in the 1990s?" The emerging markets went through two sizeable economic shocks in the 1990s, with little noticeable impact on the developed markets. Because the emerging markets now make up a larger share of the global economy, an EM economic shock today could hit the developed markets much harder.

    Plus, look for more on economics, equities and fixed income investments.

  • For an in-depth explanation of what’s included in your 1099 statement and how it can assist you in filing your federal and state income tax return, read A Guide to Your 2012 1099 Consolidated Tax Statement.  Be advised: If your account was converted to the Morgan Stanley platform, you may be receiving two 1099s/Year End Summaries for 2012.  
  • Overreacting to the market events often forces investors to sell at the bottom or miss out on a subsequent recovery. By reviewing your long-term, diversified investment plan on a periodic basis, we can alter it as your needs change—or help you stick to it when the market starts to make you jittery.  Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining financial markets.
