Bank Of America Amazed By Goldman's "Unmatched Risk-Taking/Risk-Management Skills"





The lately abnormally notorious Goldman Sachs received a little pat on the back today compliments of Bank Of America and its analyst Guy Moszkowski, who in a report published this morning announced his expectation of an "unexpected" Q2 surprise (quick, someone find the next big counterparty that Goldman shorted and also has several tens of billions in collateral exposure with the 85 Broad oracles) and also anticipates forecasts to rise. Maybe now that Goldman's fate allegedly is in the hands of a few good hackers, Guy may want to redo his hypothesis. But I digress.

REIT Analyst Leaves Bank Of America In Midst Of Most Lucrative Period For Group





Steve Sakwa, whose work product Zero Hedge has not spared its praise for in the past, has left the building. The "top rated" REIT analyst, who gained prominence in the past 2 months for such great work as an upgrade of virtually all companies he covers, has departed for greener, although unknown, pastures. It is quite odd that Sakwa would leave the bank at a time when his group was generating more revenue than virtually any analyst/trading group on Wall Street.
