(NYSE: GS) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS). Access to the full company reports can be found at www.bedfordreport.com.

Heavyweights throughout the diversified investment industry have been reporting better than expected earnings results this year. Companies involved in business development have seen strong quarterly gains, as recent acquisitions have led to an increase in market share. There could be additional consolidation within the space, though much of the industry realignment may occur as bankers and financial advisors rotate from troubled or acquired firms to those that are healthier. The industry has also benefitted from an improvement in equity and fixed income trading activity. Fixed income operations were hit extremely hard at the peak of the financial crisis.

While the diversified investment industry has been posting positive results in recent quarters, many investors are concerned that new government regulations will impact business down the road. Recently, President Barack Obama passed legislation on Wall Street Reform. This legislation will affect how financial institutions, banks and Wall Street firms interact with consumers and many analysts argue it will affect earnings. While the legislation is intended to prevent another economic meltdown, Republicans are claiming that this legislation will in fact increase the number of bailouts and restrict credit.
