Goldman Sachs Share Price Would Double Under 'Glass-Steagall II'
In an interview with NBC, noted Wall Street analyst Dick Bove of Rafferty Capital was asked his favorite question - What's your take on all the talk about reinstating some form of Glass-Steagall or of deregulating a bulk of the provisions of Dodd-Frank?
Without hesitation, Bove referred the 2nd coming of Glass-Steagall as the "Goldman Sachs Financial Aid Bill," noting that if the government were to reinstate Glass-Steagall legislation, Goldman Sachs' stock price would double - almost immediately. The same might similarly be said of Morgan Stanley - since both banks are not committed to commercial banking operations that other banks are - e.g., JPMorgan, Citi, BofA.
Which begets the question:
Should Goldman Sachs divest its banking business and reinvent itself as (return to being) an investment banker / broker-dealer?
