Morgan Stanley swings to profit

1 What’s the impact of accounting adjustments on the 3rd quarter report of Morgan Stanley?

2. Compared with Goldman Sacks which reports a rare loss yesterday, how did Morgan Stanley manage to survive with a profit? 

3. Which business contributed the most excluding accounting adjustment? While Morgan Stanley is suffering from a conflicting shared leadership between Colm Kelleher and Paul Taubman, how do you predict the future strategy of the company?

4. What’s Morgan Stanley’s exposure to European counties at the end of the 3rd quarter? What are the exposures of other big bank to the distressed countries (list at least 4 banks which just reported their 3rd quarter performance)?
