Considering all these bullish expectations and a share prices that’s up 68% ytd, how should you game Goldman?
I expect Goldman is going to perform well through the rest of the year, says Christopher Whalen, Institutional Risk Analytics Managing Director. As long as the market remains stable Goldman should harvest the benefits.
And on Fast Money’s Halftime Report the traders offered the following insights:
Meredith Whitney’s call was not a “wow this stock is doing great” -- it was more “the tallest midget is golden,” said Zach Karabell of RiverTwice. If you’re a trader it’s an opportunity but if you’re a long term investors it’s hard to get into banks because it’s hard to know what’s going on.
I wouldn’t call Goldman a midget, counters Mike Khuow of Cantor Fitzgerald. It’s not only Meredith Whitney who’s forecasting Goldman to report extraordinary trading revenue. But on the other hand I don’t know Goldman is a good bellwether for the entire banking sector either.
I’m long into Meredith Whitney’s call, reveals OptionMoster Jon Najarian. But I’m planning to take profits. However, I am seeing strong call activity that suggests the stock could pop as much as 10% in the after hours.
