Goldman Sachs Analysts Influenced by Banking Interests

In violation of NASD and NYSE regulations, analysts at Goldman Sachs were encouraged to participate in investment banking activities and were compensated with raises and bonuses. The SEC's complaint against Goldman Sachs includes reports that certain analysts were "known to be swayed by banking to support certain names."

During meetings with potential investment banking clients, known as "pitches," firm representatives implicitly suggested that Goldman Sachs would provide favorable research coverage after the investment banking transaction.

One analyst had doubts about ratings on AT&T's stock, but wrote in an email that "investment banking considerations prevented [him] from making a change" in his recommendations.
