Goldman Sachs Is Cheap, Filthy Cheap, and It Had a Great Quarter

Safe to say that Goldman Sachs (GS) really crushed it. The firm had a great quarter. At the headline level, Goldman posted GAAP EPS of $9.68. The street was looking for roughly $5.50. That’s not a misprint. Revenues landed at $10.78 billion. That number was good enough for year over year growth of 29.6%. That number was good enough to beat consensus view by almost $1.4 billion.

Digging In

Going through various business segments, some of these numbers are decent, some are just eye-popping. None are outright lousy. My eyes went right to trading. Sure, on the equity trading side, revenue grew “just” 10%, and for the past quarter (honestly), that’s not outstanding, but in fixed income, these guys nailed it. Fixed income revenue popped 49% to $2.5 billion. (Remember, JP Morgan (JPM) posted 32% growth for this line on Tuesday.) 

Beyond trading, because I have an obvious interest there,

3 Crucial Things To Consider Before Creating An Online Course


5 min read

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.


“Distance learning”, “how to create online courses“ and “starting an online business from home” have been three of the hottest search terms on Google in 2020. 

Research and Markets has reported that the online education industry is predicted to become a $325 billion industry by 2025. Many business owners, especially coaches, consultants and online entrepreneurs, are taking action and adding an (additional) passive income stream to their product suites. Others are starting to build their very own e-learning platforms. 

However, many course creators out there are making the same mistakes when creating their online courses. Course creators get very excited about creating their digital products and dive right into creating them, which, in many cases, will result in them creating a product nobody wants to hear and see about. Most forget to consider the simplest steps
