    Goldman's stock surges after revenue growth target unveiled but some analysts are 'skeptical'

    Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. rallied Tuesday, to provide the biggest boost for Dow Jones Industrial Average , but some Wall Street analysts weren't as enthusiastic as investors about the details of Goldman's outline for growth. The stock climbed $6.29, or 2.8%, in afternoon trade. That added about 43 points to the Dow's price, which was up 63 points at 22,121, above the Aug. 7 record close of 22,118.42. Goldman said earlier it targeted $5 billion in incremental revenue over the next three years, including more than $1 billion from its fixed income, currency and commodities (FICC) trading business, another $1 billion from its investment management business and over $2 billion from its lending and financing efforts. JMP analyst Devin Ryan appreciated the "good detail" around where the biggest opportunities are seen, but characterized the areas of focus as "largely incremental more than transformational." Buckingham Research analyst James Mitchell reiterated his neutral rating, saying while Goldman's revenue growth target was "laudable," he remained "somewhat skeptical," as much of the growth is expected from "challenging markets where rivals are fiercely competing for market share." Goldman's stock has lost 5.3% year to date, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF has rallied 6.7% and the Dow has run up 11.5%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Cohn exit from White House would be 'terrible' for markets: Ray Dalio

    If Gary Cohn, a top economic adviser to President Donald Trump, were to leave the White House it would likely be "terrible" for financial markets, billionaire hedge-fund manager Ray Dalio said Tuesday at the Delivering Alpha conference in New York. "It would undermine future economic progress, in terms of reforms, and it would present a challenge in putting together the administration," said Dalio, the founder of Bridgewater Associates, the world's largest hedge fund. News reports have said Cohn, the former Goldman Sachs chief operating officer who was appointed to head up Trump's National Economic Council, has fallen out of favor with Trump. Cohn, along with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, is spearheading the administration's push for a corporate tax overhaul.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Goldman, Apple stocks contribute 50 of Dow's 200-point rally

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading firmly higher on Monday, aided by a pop in shares of Apple Inc., and Goldman Sachs Group.

    Financial shares on Tuesday registered their worst single-session slump in months as benchmark yields declined amid elevated geopolitical worries swirling in the market. A popular exchange-traded fund used to bet on financial performance, the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF , closed off 2.1%, marking its steepest one-day slide since May 17, when it fell 3.2%, according to FactSet data.
