The Other White Shoe Meat

With recent M&A activity and a growing commodities desk, is Morgan Stanley the new Goldman?

In 2007, Morgan Stanley posted record sales in its commodity trading desk, explains Dylan Ratigan.

Take a look at the following:

I think Morgan will be very impressive going forward, says Pete Najarian. In addition I expect them to get heavily involved with China.

The other traders agree, Morgan is worth a look.
