Is JPMorgan Chase Right About Selling Goldman Sachs?

Until recently, JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM  ) analyst Kian Abouhossein rated both Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS  ) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS  ) "neutral" (i.e., a "hold"). But this week, his view on the two investment-banking heavyweights diverged: He now rates Morgan Stanley "overweight" (i.e., a "buy") and Goldman Sachs "underweight" (i.e., a "sell").

Is he right? Senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu thinks the numbers favor Morgan Stanley and reputation favors Goldman Sachs. However, Anand isn't particularly interested in either of them because there are many better risk-reward bets in banking -- including the company rating the two.
