Uber could aim to raise about $8 billion to $10 billion in the listing, though the final details of the pricing may still change, the people said.

Uber is taking a conservative approach to its valuation and could later raise the price depending on investor demand, the people said.
A separate report showed global trade volumes are falling at the fastest pace in a decade. Hot on the heels of the surprise reading from Korea, the Bank of Japan warned of “high uncertainties” in its outlook for growth as it pledged to keep interest rates at rock bottom levels through at least spring of 2020. The BOJ now projects that it won’t hit its 2 percent inflation target at least through March 2022, which will be nine years since Governor Haruhiko Kuroda launched his radical program to reflate prices.
Germany's Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank said Thursday they were halting talks on a possible merger that aimed to create a stronger global banking player, saying it would be too risky and costly. Deutsche Bank CEO Christian Sewing said in a statement that that the combination "would not have created sufficient benefits to offset the additional execution risks" in carrying out such a sweeping combination. Deutsche Bank made a profit last year after three straight years of losses and a wrenching restructuring that has seen it shed thousands of jobs and pull out of countries where its business was less profitable.
for Anadarko Petroleum, Wall Street dealmakers were not surprised. Occidental has forged close relationships with both banks, particularly Bank of America, where it has regularly poached high-level talent. It is also a reflection of how Occidental has approached the deal — at first hoping to strike a friendly merger before being outmanoeuvred by oil giant Chevron — and how symbiotic its relationship has become with Bank of America, where it has repeatedly relied on high-level talent as part of its strategic decision-making.

Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) beat earnings and revenue estimates. This helped to continue the march higher in Morgan Stanley stock that began in the middle of March. * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm Source: Shutterstock Over the last year, fear of tariffs and worries about the economy have influenced bank stocks. This seems remarkable, as higher interest rates generally boost profits for banks. However, one factor has emerged that could change that dynamic. With the price-to-earnings (PE) ratio flirting with single-digit levels, MS stock may become a buy regardless of the economy. MS Sees Brighter Outlook After Earnings, Revenue BeatsThe New York-based investment bank reported first-quarter earnings at $1.33 per share. This came in 17 cents ahead of estimates, but well short of the $1.45 per share reported in the same quarter last year. Revenues of $10.29 billion beat consensus estimates of $9.93 billion. However, year-ago revenues came in at $11.08 billion.Without question, earnings have slumped this year. Morgan Stanley stock, along with peers such as Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), saw their stock prices drop through most of 2018. They also stagnated between mid-January and the middle of March, as tariff-related concerns continued to weigh on these stocks.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsMoreover, fears of a recession led to a more dovish tone from the Fed. Higher interest rates tend to boost earnings potential for bank stocks. However, Morgan Stanley stock and other bank stocks have seemingly traded on prospects for the economy in recent months.Optimism about the economy rebounded as the Fed's more dovish tone and the optimism about a U.S.-China trade agreement helped to boost bank stocks. Indeed, the outlook now appears brighter. Analysts forecast earnings growth of 10.9% next year. Wall Street also forecasts average earnings increases of 10.82% per year for the next five years. Morgan Stanley Stock Becoming a Valuation PlayStill, investors may have a bigger reason to buy than profit projections. Traders should also recognize that valuation could again become a key driver for Morgan Stanley stock. Due to falling multiples, MS may have also become a buy regardless of the economy. Investors who purchase now will pay only about 10.2 times earnings, much lower than its 14.5 average PE in recent years.Multiples on Morgan Stanley stock have rarely fallen into the single digits historically. Moreover, when this low valuation comes with double-digit earnings growth, it becomes hard to see MS as anything but a buy. Unless earnings drop significantly, I see little else to change a bullish investment thesis on Morgan Stanley stock.Moreover, even if a recovery in MS stock takes time, investors can still benefit. Thanks to the economic recovery, bank stocks have again begun to increase dividends annually. The annual dividend increases in Morgan Stanley stock resumed in 2014. Today, MS pays $1.20 per share in yearly dividends, a 2.5% yield. Over the last few years, these payout hikes have come when the company reports its second-quarter earnings. Hence, the yield will likely move higher in July. Final Thoughts on Morgan Stanley StockFollowing earnings, investors should consider buying Morgan Stanley stock regardless of the recent influence of economic forces. MS beat reduced earnings and revenue estimates. However, this has held little sway over the equity as it has fallen over the last year. During that time, investors sold off bank stocks in general, as economic worries became more significant. * 6 Cheap Stocks That Cost Less Than $10 This worry has taken Morgan Stanley stock to a PE ratio of just over 10. The stock fell to that valuation despite projections of double-digit earnings growth and an increased payout. With the low PE ratio and the potential earnings growth, MS's downside appears limited. Add in the rising dividend, and it becomes hard to call MS stock anything but a buy.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.
