Zerohedge, Goldman Revenues Tumbles, FICC Craters Down 44%; EPS Beat As Compensation Slashed, here. Looks like comp is going to suck for a bunch of folks. JPM Fixed Income did much better than the other guys.
But back to revenue, which was an unmitigated disaster: the only bright light were Investment banking revenues which were $1.7 billion, unchanged from a year ago, if down 25% from Q2. It’s all downhill from here, because the all important Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities group printed just $1.247 billion, down a whopping 44% Y/Y, well below expectations, followed by a tumble in Equity Client Flow, which at $1.6 billion, was down 18% from a year earlier. Alas not even Goldman was spared from the Q3 crunch, as both trading volumes appear to have tumbled, as well as actual prop misses impacted revenue. This can be seen in the firm’s prop trading group, aka Investment and Lending, which printed at $1.5 billion down 18% from a year ago.
