It's not easy finding value in the market, but those discount shoppers seeking a bargain should check out Morgan Stanley (MS) - Get Report , Apache (APA) - Get Report and Mosaic (MOS) - Get Report , said Tom Bastian, senior portfolio manager at Invesco. Shares of Morgan Stanley are down 1% year-to-date, lagging the S&P 500 along with the rest of the financial sector as a result of the low-interest rate, low IPO, high regulation environment. Still, the investment bank, now concentrating more on asset management, has returned more than its Wall Street rival Goldman Sachs, which has seen its shares fall 10% this year. Bastian is also bullish on Apache, which has seen its shares surge 34% year-to-date after the drop in oil prices dragged them down in 2014 and 2015. Finally, Bastian is positive on Mosaic MOS, which is down 13% thus far in 2016. Profits at fertilizer producers have dropped due to falling prices, due in part to weak currencies in importing areas such as Brazil and excessive supplies.
