How to trade Goldman Sachs into the results

Refinitiv data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‘Buy’ for Goldman. The long-term price target of $429.10 suggests the share to be currently trading at a discount of 37% to a perceived longer-term fair value.

IG sentiment data shows that 93% of clients with open positions on the share (as of 8 April 2022) expect the price to rise over the near term, while 7% of these clients expect the price to fall.

Goldman Sachs – technical view

The long-term trend for Goldman remains down as the price trades firmly below the 200-day simple moving average (SMA).

In the short-term, however, we have a bullish wedge formation (red lines) and oversold signal on the company. This suggests that we could see a short-term rebound within the longer-term uptrend. The rebound would be considered following a break (close) above wedge resistance at roughly $328.90. This scenario would consider a move back towards the $375.50 level.

Traders respecting the longer-term downtrend would however look for a bearish reversal before this level ($375.50) for short entry. Alternatively, a break below wedge support ($299.60) could also suggest short entry with $269.70 the next support target.

Summary

  • Goldman Sachs is set to release Q1 2022 results on 14 April 2022
  • Q1 2022 are expected to show a year on year decline in both revenue and EPS
  • Long-term broker consensus suggests the share to currently be a ‘buy’, with a longer-term price target of $429.10
  • IG clients with open positions on the share are predominantly long
  • The long-term price trend for Goldman remains down, although in the short term a falling wedge and oversold signal suggest a short-term rebound
