Now that the Sony (NYSE: SNE ) PlayStation 4 and the Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT ) Xbox One have launched in a large number of territories, attention turns to whether or not these systems will deliver the content necessary to create long-term success. As the Wii U from Nintendo (NASDAQOTH: NTDOY ) has demonstrated, hardware launches are often followed by long periods of software drought. Take this fact and combine it with the tendency of the first-quarter release window to be the weakest of the year from both the quality and the commercial standpoints and there is reason to suspect that 2014 will fall victim to undesirable trends. On the contrary, this year's first quarter will see the release of some very big games. One of them could even shape the outcome of the console wars.�

After a disappointing debut last year for Nintendo's (NASDAQOTH: NTDOY ) Wii U and little buzz generated from Sony's (NYSE: SNE ) recent PlayStation 4 unveiling event, it's up to Microsoft to turn the fortunes around for a once-booming industry that has suffered three brutal years of declining sales.
- [By Rick Munarriz]
Clearly Microsoft has done just fine with its army of Web-tethered individuals. Microsoft's presentation also makes it clear that it will once again be the one to beat this generation. Sony (NYSE: SNE ) -- whose upcoming PlayStation 4 will butt heads with Microsoft's new toy later this year -- won't catch up. Nintendo (NASDAQOTH: NTDOY ) -- whose interactive, family-oriented games would seem to make it a better heir for the living room throne -- didn't make much of a dent with the Wii U last November when it entered the holiday shopping season uncontested. It will be toast this time around.

- [By Ben Levisohn]
We applauded Morgan Stanley for its [fixed income, currencies and commodities, or] FICC restructuring announcement in 2012 as the right step towards improving ROE. However, with [wealth management] earnings growing, we believe the pressure has lessened for management to shrink FICC further, with the business in our estimates consuming c.45% of group RWAs and not generating CoE returns in 2016E. In addition, Morgan Stanley now appears expensive, trading at 11.3x P/E, 1.1x P/NAV for RONAV 9.9% in 2016E which is a material premium to European IBs on average 7.9x 2016E P/E. We do not see Morgan Stanley reaching its 10%+ ROE target (on average common equity) in our current estimates and is offering no upside to our $34 Dec-15 SOP based PT. Hence we downgrade Morgan Stanley to Neutral from OW and see better value in European IBs, in particular UBS (UBS) trading at 9.0x P/E and 1.5x P/NAV for RONAV 16.4% in 2016E.
