Daniel Jay Sherman, of New York, New York, a stockbroker registered with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, was the subject of a customer initiated investment related Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) securities arbitration claim that was settled for $17,500.00 in damages based upon allegations that Sherman made unsuitable recommendations of certain common stocks and preferred stocks when Sherman was associated with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC.
