Goldman Sachs Reports Improved Earnings

Income Statement Components
Net Revenues and Earnings per Share Growth

Income Statement Q3 Goldman Sachs reported total revenues of $8.9B, net income of $1.9B, and earnings per share of $2.98. From the prior quarter Q2 2010, total revenues were up +0.70%, net income up +209.6%, and earnings per share up +263.4%. From the prior year Q3 2009, these were down -28.0%, -40.5%, and -43.2%, respectively. The operating and net margins rebounded with the improved QoQ results. Most of the increase in net income was due to a decrease in noninterest expenses, operating expenses, from $7.4B in June 2010 to $6.1B in September 2010. Net income increased QoQ from $613M to $1.9B. Therefore, net income and earnings per share improved due to decreased expenses, not from top line growth.

Balance Sheet Q3 Total assets increased QoQ +2.9% to $909B. The capital to assets ratio (total stockholders' equity divided by total assets) is 8.32%, which about average for the most recent 4 quarters. Tier 1 capital was 15.7%, which is adequate and the highest in many quarters.
