Q: Am I correct in concluding from my calculations that investors place a lower value on GS shares than they do on firms like MS and JPM? If yes, is GS’ share price discounted because GS carries a higher risk than its peers ? For GS my calculations have ROE at 16%, and PEG at 1.25. I cannot work out ROCI— I come up with a bizarre number. What are your ratios for all these please?

Other than a high debt level, would you have concerns about GS that amateurs would not see? Is GS a reasonably good investment based on both its own projections, its actual history, and projections by the more insightful “Mike Mayo type” analysts? (I don't have access to Mayo’s research) .

I am fully allocated to financials, but that seems to be one of the few sectors that possibly has some value. Correct? I find worrying about “diversification” and “allocations” rather tiresome. Do you find time spent on “proper” allocation worth while on your own PERSONAL accounts ? Really?

Q: Hello Peter and Ryan,
I was thinking of putting money in CME, SQ, GS, GMP (toronto), XAU(toronto), and MOGO(toronto) as a means of getting myself started on investing in bitcoin. Any comments? Lastly, when a company like CMED is reluctant for a takeover, does this normally imply the company is looking for more money on the table or feels it can do it on its own? I know that is a speculative question but in general as it seems CMED is not backing down. Thanks very much.

Q: Hi Peter and Team,
I recently read an article on bitcoin. In this article, the author identifies a number of companies as equity proxies for bitcoin. Square (SQ), Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Goldman Sachs Group (GS) are 3 of the companies mentioned in this article.
Would you please enlighten me on the connection between the 3 above-mentioned companies and bitcoin. Your comments, as always, would be much appreciated.

Q: Would you sell if you held it and replace it with Goldman Sachs instead? OR would you keep USB (assuming your allocation allowed) and simply ADD Goldman? I’d appreciate some SUBSTANTIVE reasoning , would really apreciate that. Many thanks.

(PS: I reviewed your previous comments on Goldman Sachs and was baffled by your responses. Goldman a target for takeover given anti-trust rules & regs? And: Goldman I could not see where made the acquisitionist you referred to; nor does Goldman pay the dividend amounts you mentioned. Nevertheless , I defer to your expertise)
I have a question about 854
