MORGAN STANLEY'S SINO SALVATION:
The headline:Morgan Stanley (MS) Posts Worse-Than-Expected Loss, But Shares Pop On $5B China Infusion.
CNBC’s Charlie Gasparino joins the panel for this conversation. Following is a synopsis of his main points.
- Morgan Stanley took a $9.4b write-down, more than twice initial estimate of $3.7billion says Gasparino.
- Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack's future could be in question because of writedowns and firing of Zoe Cruz according to Gasparino.
- Mack's chances of survival are now slimmer than previously reported. Gasparino says odds of ouster now 4 to 1.
- Jimmy Cayne, the Chief at Bear Stearns is likely the next to go Gasparino adds.
Pete Najarian doesn’t agree with Gasparino. He’s long Morgan and likes the stock.
