An
unmitigated disaster, and worse than practically everybody on the
Street anticipated, save that brash-ass blogging dude brandishing those
old fashioned analytical weapons of choice... Two months or so ago
(Monday, 22 August 2011), I penned the public blog post that also
relased my most recent research on Goldman Sachs -
The Squid Is A Federally (Tax Payer) Insured Hedge Fund Paying Fat
Bonuses That Can't Trade In Volatile Markets? Who's Gonna Tell The
Shareholders and Tax Payer???
-  as excerpted:

The chart
below demonstrates how the volatility of the revenues from the trading
and principal investments trickles down into volatility of the total
revenues and profits of Goldman Sachs. I don’t call Goldman the world’s
most expensive federally insured hedge fund for nothing!

And
for those who haven't been following my Squid Hunting series, there's a
lot more to come from those boys at 200 West Street. If you want to
know what will happen next, just look at the first few pages of the
lastest Goldman subscription docs (click here to subscribe):

Welcome
to part two of my series on Hunting the Squid, the overvaluation and
under-appreciation of the risks that is Goldman Sachs. Since this highly

imperative that those who have not done so review part 1 of this series,

My
next post should also include research on the next bank that we have
found that has been (again) overlooked by the market, the media and the
sell side. Can we expect the same that we saw in BNP, Bear, Lehman,
etc.? Well, paying subscribers shall find out forthwith.

I
will be releasing the date (probably this week), location and time of
the NYC meet and greet within the next 24 hours or so, so we can chat,
drink, debate, argue and fraternize with pretty woman together in a
trendy spot in the Meat Packing District or the Bowery (I apologize in
advance to all of my female readers/subscribers). Those who are
interested in attending should email customer support.
There has been strong interest in the London meeting, enough to warrant
the venue - I simply need to get the travel and venue organized due to a
change of plans.
For those that are new to the blog, these are pics of previous meet and greets...
