Asian stocks are downgraded by Goldman Sachs, which lowers it 12-month price target on the MSCI Asia ex-Japan Index (AAXJ) to 480 from 550 (it's currently about 430). "The macro environment has turned less favorable for regional equities ... growth estimates have declined, notably in China, as policymakers turn more constrictive." The bank is overweight South Korea (EWY), Singapore (EWS), and Thailand (THD), but underweight Oz (EWA), Hong Kong (EWH), Malaysia (EWM), Philippines (EPHE), and Taiwan (EWT).

    "Goldman Sachs Could Miss Earnings This Quarter

    I think we’re going into a tough quarter for Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS). The bank will find it difficult to thrive with all this market volatility.


    Goldman Sachs institutional client services

    In the first quarter, Goldman Sachs reported a 10% year-over-year decline in its institutional client-services segment, which handles all of the fixed income, currency, and commodities execution. With the recent decline in the price of gold and silver, I could only imagine things getting worse inside of this Goldman business segment. The broader stock market also declined, so it’s highly probable that the stock trading division could report a year-over-year decline on earnings."
