Goldman Sachs downgraded to Equal Weight on 1MDB probe risks at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck downgraded Goldman Sachs to Equal Weight from Overweight, citing the risks and uncertainties related to the bank being investigated for its role in raising funds for 1MDB. It is currently unclear how long the issue will take to resolve, what the fines and penalties could be and what costs Goldman will incur, said Graseck, who doesn't see the stock's multiple expanding significantly until the 1MDB issue is resolved. She lowered her price target on Goldman Sachs shares to $226 from $291.

Morgan Stanley says 13F a 'clear signal' of value Buffett sees in financials
Following the release last night of 13F filings detailing the holdings of large investors, including Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A), Morgan Stanley analyst Kai Pan noted that the filing from Warren Buffett's Berkshire revealed increased stakes in Bank of America (BAC), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Goldman Sachs (GS) along with new stakes in JPMorgan (JPM), PNC Financial (PNC) and Travelers (TRV). The analyst sees these investments, along with the fact that Berkshire's s financial holdings stood at 46% of its overall $203B equity portfolio as of quarter end, as a "clear signal" of the value that Buffett sees in financials, Pan tells investors. He adds that he views Buffett's new stake in Oracle (ORCL) as another "notable" new purchase.
