A Glimpse into the Goldman Sachs Portfolio (GS, AAPL, GOOG, MSFT, QCOM, ORCL, SPY, EEM, EFA, IWM, GE, GENZ, PEP)
After a tumultuous couple of years, Goldman Sachs Group (GS) got back on track in 2010, settling litigation related to the 2008 mortgage meltdown and cementing its position as the premier investment bank on Wall Street. Thanks to its pedigree, the firm’s investments remain closely watched.
Given the scale of Goldman’s trading operations, and the firm’s diversification across multiple asset classes, such as bonds, currencies, and derivatives, it’s impossible to gain a full understanding of its strategy from quarterly regulatory filings. Still, a look at Looking at Goldman Sachs’ top U.S.-listed holdings at the end of Q3, provide a glimpse of where the most profitable bank in Wall Street history was placing its bets heading into 2011.
The top holding, however, is an ETF, SPDR Trust Series 1 (SPY), where the firm was increasing its stake during the quarter. Goldman was also making moves in other ETFs, adding to its iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index Fund (EEM) stake and trimming its iShares TR INDEX MSCI EAFE IDX (EFA) and iShares Russell 2000 Index Fund (IWM) stakes.

Pro portfolio performance is based on institutions’ top-15 holdings as disclosed in quarter-end filings with the SEC. Pro performance does not take into account additional holdings beyond the top 15 nor does it include positions that are not required to be disclosed by the SEC. As such, Pro portfolio performance should be considered an approximation and not a precise record of how an institution has performed over time.
