At least Goldmans could provide some hope for US banks. It beat expectations, helped along by heavy cost-cutting that outpaced a significant decline in revenue. In addition, equity trading saw its performance improve, which helped to counter the weak fixed-income trading revenues that had been standard across the industry in the reporting season so far. As a whole, 2014 was a good year for the bank, which continues to outpace rivals. Trading at only around ten times earnings, the bank seems to be in a much better position, while the significant buyback plans may well provide further upside momentum to the stock’s performance.
