Highlights
It is becoming increasingly apparent that a terrible wrong may have beendone to Goldman Sachs. Evidence is now mounting that the company didnot have a net short position ate crucial time under study and that theSenate Committee may have misread the numbers. It is also becomingapparent that Mr. Blankfein did not misrepresent to the Senate Committeebecause Goldman was not net short at the time the firm was accused of misrepresenting its position.However, it is also becoming apparent that the company is facing a relativelybleak second quarter and that its secular outlook has been weakened. Theearnings estimates for the company have been reduced as follows: a) the2011 estimate has been cut from $13.66 per share to $11.75 per share; b)the 2012 estimate has been reduced to $17.72 per share from $18.07 pershare; and c) the 2013 estimate has been reduced to $19.76 per share from$19.99 per share.How does one weigh these two conflicting pieces of information? It nowlooks likely that the entities investigating the company may resolve theirsearches without charging the company of any misdeeds. This is likely tosway investor sentiment toward the firm.On the other hand it also seems likely that the earnings estimates beingmade for this company for the second quarter and year are much too high.Volumes on the major exchanges have been quite weak all this quarter. Thedata from the Federal Reserve of New York indicates that while trading incorporates has held up, activity in the rates market has plummeted, and theMBS market continues to weaken.Commodity prices have fallen and activity has declined. Commodity optiontrading on the New York Board of Trade has plummeted since March.Volatility in the currency markets has also come down. Trading in currencyfutures has plummeted.On a longer term basis, the industry is now feeling the pressure from aweakening economy and increased government pressure. It is evident thatthere will be a systemically important financial institution (SIFI) buffer. Plus,there are more rules coming that will crimp trading activity.M&A activity could also slow if the economic outlook does not improve.Companies are likely to become cautious once again.Thus, as Goldman emerges from its government problems, it now faceseconomic issues that may cause difficulty with the stock. Any decision on therating will be deferred until other analysts adjust their estimates on thecompany and the political entities begin withdrawing their attacks.
