[Updated 05/17/2021] Up 40% YTD, Goldman Sachs stock is trading near its fair value

goldman sachs stock (NYSE:GS), the market leader in the investment banking sector, gained nearly 40% — up from about $264 in early 2021 to about $369 currently, outperforming the S&P 500, which grew 11% over the same period. This increase was in line with other US bank stocks, as evidenced by the Dow Jones US Banks Index (up 36% YTD).

There were two obvious reasons for this: First, the approval of a stimulus package of $1.9 trillion. Second, the fast-moving Kovid-19 vaccination campaign in America – 47% of the US population Has already received at least one dose. Both the above factors strengthen the prospects of a strong economic recovery, thereby boosting investor sentiment.

But is that all in the story?

Not quite, despite recent gains, estimates Trefis Goldman Sachs Valuation Slightly above current market price — about $385 per share — based on a prime opportunity and a risk factor.

The opportunities we see have a better trajectory for Goldman Sachs Revenue in subsequent quarters. Goldman Sachs saw significant growth in the top-line for the full year 2020. It reported $44.6 billion in revenue — up 22%, driven primarily by 24% growth in investment banking and a 43% jump in global markets (sales and trading). ) businesses. While growth in investment banking was due to higher underwriting volumes, reflecting an increase in initial public offering and loan origination activity, sales and trading benefited from higher trading volumes due to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis. Notably, both of the above businesses cumulatively generate about 61% of total revenue, which increased to 69% in 2020. In addition, the bank’s assets under supervision (AUS) increased 18% year-on-year to $1.5 trillion by the end of the year.

The same trend continued in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, with the bank outperforming consensus estimates by a wide margin — revenue in the quarter doubled year-on-year to $17.7 billion. While all its sectors registered growth, the growth can be mainly attributed to 73% growth in investment banking and 47% growth in global markets (highest quarterly net revenue since 2010). Notably, the bank’s asset management revenue — increased to $4.61 billion from $96 million in the year-ago period, reflecting record revenue in the equity investment sub-segment. In addition, GS has seen continued growth in assets under supervision (AUS) in recent quarters, touching $1.56 trillion in Q1 — 2% sequentially, benefiting its asset management segment. That said, high trading volumes and unusual spurts in underwriting deal volumes are expected to normalize with the improvement in economic conditions. But, until then, sales and business and investment banking are likely to dominate its quarterly results. In addition, Goldman’s core banking operations are significantly smaller than those of its counterparts. Therefore, the low interest rate environment is not likely to have a significant impact on its top-line. Overall, we expect GS revenue for fiscal 2021 to be approximately $49.8 billion.

Revenue growth coupled with lower operating expenses is likely to improve the bank’s profitability figures in fiscal 2021 — an adjusted net income figure of $14.8 billion (up 66% yoy). This is expected to increase EPS for the year from $24.74 to $44.02, which combined with a P/E multiplier of below 9x, would result in a valuation of approximately $385.

Finally, how much should the market pay per dollar of Goldman Sachs earnings? Well, to earn about $44.02 per year from a bank, you need to deposit about $4402 into a savings account today, so almost 100 times the desired income. At Goldman Sachs’ current share price of around $369, we’re talking about a P/E multiplier of above 8x. And we think a figure closer to 9x would be appropriate.

That said, banking is a risky business right now. Growth in lending looks less promising, and near-term prospects are less than rosy. What’s behind that?

Goldman Sachs increased its provisions for loan losses in FY20 to offset the higher risk of loan default. The bank has a portfolio of about $105 billion in total loans (as of March 2021 data) and a sudden rise in COVID-19 cases or a downturn in the economic…
