The Charles Schwab Corporation Research Report

Schwab is seen to seek dismissal of pending class actions after the Financial
Industry Regulatory Authority last week upheld its right to bar clients from
bringing such lawsuits. The investment services firm believes it can move the
cases though experts say any attempt to leverage victory would fuel criticism
further especially among consumer advocates. In addition, many firms are also
likely to follow Schwab, though others are concerned about its effect on
individual investors and instead will try to woo clients away from Schwab. A
FINRA hearing panel earlier upheld the company's late 2011 move to require
clients to waive their class-action rights. Schwab's requirement violates
FINRA's rules, but the rules themselves violate the National Arbitration Act,
the panel found. In other news, The Street upgraded Schwab to a "buy" from
"hold," citing growth in revenue and earnings per share, as well as
improvement in the stock itself. The Full Research Report on The Charles

deals this year after it posted trading volume growth recently due to its
previous acquisitions. Rumors have surfaced regarding a possible merger with
rival Deutsche Boerse AG at the end of 2012, though reports suggest the

nearly $20 billion and extending its reach into grains, Treasuries, and
energy. The merger with Deutsche Boerse will give them control of the Eurex

business last year. The Full Research Report on CME Group Inc. - including
