Goldman Sachs Principal Transactions Update: Humming Nicely

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Goldman principal PT shares transacted increased by over 40% from the prior week: 550 million to 765 million, clocking at near 50% of total NYSE principal volume - about par for the course. Out of the top 15 most active NYSE traders, 5 have completely given up trading for principal accounts. More interestingly, 8 did no trades for customer facilitation purposes, while agency trades have surprisingly picked up steam, with Morgan Stanley claiming the throne in that category. Total PT was at 33.6%, 7% higher than the 52 week average: also little surprise there.

thanks for posting that....i read the stipulation and GS just backed off. 

 

Guess too much negative publicity is starting to get on you a bit, eh Lloyd?

 

There is a critical mass developing and even joe 6 pack is hearing a lot about Goldman.

 

And, some of us are watching what is going on with those TARP warrants as well.  You won't be able to sneak those bad boys through in the middle of the night....

Back to the discussion on operating vs reported earnings.  This situation is a sad joke.  Company X beat the street when you do not factor in expenses....
