Morgan Stanley | Apple Inc | General Electrico | Weak Trading

Morgan Stanley's first-quarter profit fell 45% as revenue slid and its 40% interest in a joint venture with Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. weighed on results.
The firm was expected to see bond-trading revenue weaken from a year-earlier period marked by strength in that business. But its investment-banking and wealth-management operations were expected to offset soft trading results. 


Morgan Stanley's first-quarter profit dropped nearly 50 percent, hurt by a decline in fixed income trading revenue.
The investment bank and brokerage posted net income for shareholders of $736 million, or 50 cents a share, down from $1.41 billion, or 99 cents a share, a year earlier.

NEW YORK—Morgan Stanley's compensation per employee fell 4% from last year's first quarter, to $68,806, as the number of employees rose 1.9%, according to its quarterly earnings report filed Thursday.
World-wide employee headcount rose to 62,494. Morgan Stanley set aside $4.3 billion in the quarter for compensation and benefits, down 2% from last year's first quarter. The ratio of compensation to revenues rose to 57% from 49% in last year's first quarter. One reason for the rise was a reduction in revenue due to a loss at the company's joint venture in Japan, though the ratio would have risen to 52% without the loss.
