14:42 EDTGSEarnings Watch: Goldman to report amid optimism on fixed income, trading
Goldman Sachs (GS) is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the open on Wednesday, April 16, with a conference call scheduled for 9:30 am ET. Goldman is an investment bank. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $4.26 on revenue of $9.35B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $4.11-$4.44 on revenue of $8.72B-$9.65B. LAST QUARTER: Goldman reported higher than expected fourth quarter profits and revenue. However, the revenue of its investment banking and institutional client services businesses fell 16% and 8% respectively versus the same period a year earlier, while the revenue of its fixed income business tumbled 19% year-over-year. In March, Goldman passed the Fed's stress test, and it raised its quarterly dividend by 5c to 65c per share. In April, Reuters reported that Global investment banking fees dropped 8% to $20B in the first quarter, representing the weakest start to the year for the fees since 2012, according to Reuters. Deal activity in Europe, Asia Pacific, and Japan was weak during the quarter, the news service stated. On a positive note for Goldman investors, The Wall Street Journal on April 2 quoted NAB Research and Deutsche Bank as saying that volatility in the currency market had risen 18% from January to mid-March, which should boost profitability for the fixed-income trading businesses at major banks. PEER RESULTS: Perhaps boding well for Goldman, JPMorgan reported on Monday that its Q1 gross investment banking revenue from its commercial banking clients had soared 68%, STREET RESEARCH: On April 7, research firm Susquehanna raised its Q1 EPS estimate for Goldman to $4.24 from $3.60, citing improved trading and fixed income forecasts. The firm increased its price target on the shares to $198 from $190 and set a Neutral rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: Goldman's stock has jumped almost 13% over the last three months and almost 30% over the last year.
