Morgan Stanley Is Doing Just Fine, Though, Really, Screw That Ratings Agency

Charlie Gasparino reports that Morgan Stanley has a few things to say this morning:
1. No plans to issue stock, despite insinuations by Barron's.
2. No "material or significant exposure to Lehman," despite a note put out last night by Dick Bové.
3. Mitsubishi deal IS ON TRACK. Can't be announced Monday, though, because of Columbus day here, and "Health and Fitness Day" in Japan, according to CG.
4. And, Gasparino paraphrases here, Morgan feels they were "sandbagged by Moody's."
