“Goldman Sachs Tops Q2 Earnings Forecast As Trading Revenues Surge
Goldman Sachs said its global markets revenues rose 93% to $7.18 billion, helping offset a 70% rise in loan loss provisions and pushing the group’s bottom line well ahead of Wall Street forecasts.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc.  (GS) – Get Report posted much better-than-expected second quarter earnings Wednesday as it followed Wall Street rivals with a surge in trading revenues linked to market volatility during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic.

Goldman said profits for the three months ending in June were pegged at $6.26 per share, up 7.7% from the same period last year and well ahead of the Street consensus forecast of $3.78 per share. Group revenues, Goldman said, surged 41% to $13 billion, smashing analysts’ estimates of a $9.75 billion tally.

Investment banking revenues, Goldman said, rose 36% to $2.66 billion, echoing the surge reported by U.S. rivals JPMorgan  (JPM) – Get Report and Citigroup  (C) – Get Report yesterday. Net revenues for its global markets division, meanwhile, nearly doubled from last year to $7.18 billion. Loan loss provisions, however, were also notably higher from last year, rising 70% to $1.59 billion.”
