NEW YORK, December 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Market Buzz Report, an investment community for small cap and penny stocks, issues notable stocks analysis for Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS), Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARNA), Vale SA (NYSE: VALE), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM).

Looking to grow its wealth management business in new ways, Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) is waving a ban on paying brokers for servicing households with less than $100K in assets at the firm under one condition: the clients must divulge to Morgan assets held outside of Morgan. In the past, brokers have complained the restrictions have cut them off from clients with growth potential, and Morgan isn't the only brokerage giving wealth managers a higher payout percentage as revenue rises. The tweak is just one of several Morgan and other brokerages are trying out. "They are figuring out how to make a little bit more money in the aggregate without angering any one person enough to get them to leave," says Danny Sarch, a recruiter of retail stockbrokers.

Vale SA(NYSE: VALE) says it might sell stakes in its global fertilizer and coal businesses to strategic partners to lighten project costs but isn't targeting the segments for divestments as it still considers them part of its long-term core. The two segments account for a small portion of Vale's revenue - a combined 7.9% in Q3 - and have weighed on cash flow. Vale says it is considering selling a 15%-25% stake in its coal division, although it plans to invest ~$2.8B in the business next year. Vale's efforts to become a major player in fertilizers took a hit this year when it suspended a $6B potash project in Argentina; it has just $52M set aside for investing in new fertilizer projects next year.

In response to remarks from Edsel Ford II stating Alan Mulally will remain at Ford (F) until the end of 2014, Nomura's Rick Sherlund asserts Mulally will be Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) next CEO, and that an announcement could happen before the holidays. Sherlund: "If [Mulally] were not in discussions, it would be easy to say 'I am not interested and will not go.'" Sherlund has previously declared it "likely" Mulally will be named Steve Ballmer's successor, and has raised the possibility Microsoft's pending CEO change would lead to cost cuts, asset sales, and changes to the company's capital structure. Microsoft has bounced a little off its intraday lows following Sherlund's comments, but its market cap is still ~$9B lower than it was before Edsel Ford II's remarks.

The Too Big To Fail banks lead to the downside amid a report the set-to-be-voted on Volcker rule will not contain language allowing portfolio hedging - trades supposedly designed to protect against losses in a broad portfolio of assets. Banks can thank JPMorgan Chase & Co.(NYSE: JPM) London Whale fiasco for this as the Whale's trades were ostensibly set up for this portfolio hedging, but ended up costing the bank $6B.The move is a big blow to the banks which had sent their big lobbying guns in to try and prevent the disallowing of this practice. Banks often hedge to offset risks from trading with clients, but often there is no great hedge, and this is where portfolio hedging comes in... or used to.
