Charles Peabody on valuing Goldman Sachs in spite of SEC allegations

Our rating currently is a 'Buy' rating for Goldman Sachs. [...] Let's say Goldman produces $5 of earnings on Tuesday when they report. That's maybe a mid-, hi-teen ROE, book value will be around 120, 1.5x book, which is what a mid-to-hi-teens ROE supports, would imply $180, $190 stock.
