    VTG AG’s management rebuffed a 1.53 billion euro ($1.79 billion) takeover offer from Morgan Stanley’s infrastructure arm and said the approach undervalued the German wagon-hire and rail-logistics company. “The offer does not reflect the fundamental value of VTG Aktiengesellschaft considering its future potential,” the Hamburg-based company said in an emailed statement Monday. The infrastructure firm, which already owns 29 percent of VTG, is offering 53 euros a share in cash for the rest, Morgan Stanley said in a statement Monday, confirming a Bloomberg News report from earlier in the day.

    What to Expect from Morgan Stanley in the Second Quarter

    Morgan Stanley (MS) is expected to post an EPS of $1.11 in the second quarter—an implied growth of 27.6% on a YoY (year-over-year) basis due to higher trading, asset management, and lower taxes. On a sequential basis, Morgan Stanley is expected to see a 23.0% decline in its earnings mainly due to a decline in volatility from highs in the first quarter. The earnings decline is partially offset by a rebound in holdings’ valuations and the expectation of higher performance fees.

    [$$] US Treasury market structure could pose systemic risk — report

    The current structure of the US Treasury market could pose a risk to financial stability, an industry advisory group to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has concluded. The rise of lightning-fast proprietary trading firms has made the system more fragmented and potentially vulnerable to shocks, according to a report from the Treasury Market Practices Group, which said practices governing collateral and clearing have failed to keep up with the changing market. The failure of a principal trading firm (PTF) could leave a trading platform, or an intermediary that routes transactions through the system, on the hook to cover big losses, putting the system as a whole at risk.
