CrowdStrike's stock is down more than 32% this year, and the analyst expects further downside ahead after the company issued light guidance. The analyst's $120 price target, slashed from $225, is about 13% below where shares closed Tuesday.
An investment in an exchange-traded fund involves risks similar to those of investing in a broadly based portfolio of equity securities traded on exchange in the relevant securities market, such as market fluctuations caused by such factors as economic and political developments, changes in interest rates and perceived trends in stock prices. The investment return and principal value of ETF investments will fluctuate, so that an investor's ETF shares, if or when sold, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

You make your contributions into the plan via payroll deductions and on set dates, the company purchases shares on your behalf (at a discount!) with the funds accumulated and delivers them to you. Like most company benefits, participation is optional for employees.
You may owe taxes either when shares are purchased and sold or only when they are sold. The type of taxes you owe depends on the type of plan offered by your employer, and for tax-qualified ESPPs, on the timing of purchase and when you sell your ESPP shares. Specifically, if your company offers a tax-qualified ESPP, you may receive preferential tax treatment on your shares at sale if you sell them more than a year from the purchase date (when you receive the shares) and more than two years from the offering date.
In its complaint, the Commission alleges that Morgan Stanley violated Rule 101 of Regulation M under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by attempting to induce certain customers who received allocations of IPOs to place purchase orders for additional shares in the aftermarket. The complaint further alleges that Morgan Stanley did induce certain customers to place such orders during the new issues' first few trading days.
Rule 101 of Regulation M, among other things, prohibits underwriters, during a restricted period prior to the completion of their participation in the distribution of IPO shares, from directly or indirectly bidding for, purchasing, or attempting to induce any person to bid for or purchase any offered security in the aftermarket. As a prophylactic rule, Regulation M is designed to prohibit activities that could artificially influence the market for the offered security, including, for example, supporting the IPO price by creating the perception of scarcity of IPO stock or creating the perception of aftermarket demand.
During the restricted period, i.e., prior to Morgan's Stanley's completion of participation in the distribution of IPO shares, Morgan Stanley attempted to induce certain customers to make aftermarket purchases in violation of Rule 101 of Regulation M by engaging in the following activities.
After the distribution of IPO shares was complete, some of Morgan Stanley's sales force made calls and solicited aftermarket orders from certain customers who had provided aftermarket interest. Morgan Stanley viewed favorably follow-through aftermarket buying in the first few days of trading. For example, a syndicate manger e-mailed a sales representative, \"thanks for following up with the [aftermarket] feedback. i am glad to know that the account reciprocated with aftermarket. tell them to keep it up.\" In addition, after customers bought shares in the immediate aftermarket, some Morgan Stanley sales representatives at times referred to their customers' aftermarket buying as fulfilling their \"promises\" or \"commitments.\" Further, Morgan Stanley monitored customers' aftermarket purchases in the first few days of trading. This conduct, taken as a whole, demonstrates that when Morgan Stanley previously had solicited aftermarket interest from these customers during the restricted period, it was attempting to induce customers to place aftermarket orders in the first few days of trading.
Morgan Stanley also violated Rule 101 of Regulation M in the Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia IPO by soliciting a 350,000 share aftermarket order from a customer before all the IPO shares had been distributed. On the morning of the Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia IPO, and before Morgan Stanley had announced that syndicate had broken, Morgan Stanley called a customer and told it that Morgan Stanley was concerned because there were no aftermarket orders on Morgan Stanley's trading desk. Morgan Stanley then asked the customer to place an aftermarket order. The customer agreed to Morgan Stanley's request and placed an aftermarket order for 350,000 shares in the period before syndicate broke. Morgan Stanley executed the order later in the day after trading began. The customer sold all of its IPO shares and the shares it had bought in the aftermarket that same day.

Thesis: \"Our EW thesis on WBD shares is based on an attractive de-leveraging opportunity ahead balanced against: 1) the current weak state and direction of the global advertising market, revenues that carry high incremental margins at WBD; and 2) execution risk around the roll-out of its new streaming 'enhanced service' coming first to the US this spring.\"
I rate Morgan Stanley's (NYSE:MS) shares as a Hold. The earnings are expected to decline YoY in Q1 2022, taking into account the prospects of lower revenue and earnings from equity capital markets and M&A advisory. But I expect Morgan Stanley's first-quarter EPS to be in line with market expectations, implying a muted market reaction to its upcoming earnings announcement. More importantly, the shares don't seem to be mispriced as its premium valuations are in line with the bank's higher ROE expectations for 2022, which justifies a Hold rating for the stock prior to its Q1 earnings announcement.
