Morgan Stanley is scheduled to report second-quarter earnings before the opening bell Tuesday.

Here’s what Wall Street expects:

  • Earnings: $1.15 a share, according to Refinitiv
  • Revenue: $13.1 billion
  • Wealth management: $6.5 billion, according to FactSet
  • Trading: Equities $2.37 billion; fixed income $1.99 billion
  • Investment banking: $1.06 billion

Under CEO James Gorman, Morgan Stanley’s reliance on wealth management has helped its steady earnings and boosted its valuation relative to peers. Gorman, who took over the firm in 2010, said in May he was preparing to step down within a year, setting off a succession race at the Wall Street powerhouse.

The company’s shares are up slightly this year, compared with the about 20% decline of the KBW Bank Index.

On Friday, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo each posted earnings that topped analysts’ expectations amid higher interest rates. Goldman Sachs wraps up big bank earnings Wednesday.
