    Taken in their entirety, the e-mails and internal reports show Goldman took advantage of naïve Internet start-ups to fatten its own bottom line.
    Goldman would have made a LOT more money if they had priced these offerings higher, since their fee is based on a percentage of funds raised.

      made a LOT more money, than the $400 million they STOLE - if they let eToys get is "proper" share of the IPO?

      REALLY????

        ...not commenting on the specific allegations of your case.....and perhaps I misinterpreted this reference by Nocera.

        Some people here think that in an underwritten offering the bank buys shares from a company at X and turns around and sells them at X + $25 and pockets the difference.  That is illegal....I know, I know,  many things are illegal and happen....trust me, that doesn't happen.

        •  I understand. Even if we do not discuss case (0+ / 0-)

          specifics, what Goldman Sachs did - in "low balling" the prices and "splitting" the gains - is Illegal.

          Goldman Sachs and others, including Meg Whittman of Ebay, pled "No Contest" - and (purportedly) - paid back their "spinning" monies

          (If it got paid back to my company eToys - I never get the memo - or the payments).
