According to regulatory filings, Goldman Sachs sold 4680822 shares of BP in the first quarter of 2010. Goldman's sales were the largest of any firm during that time. Goldman would have pocketed slightly more than $266 million if their holdings were sold at the average price of BP's stock during the quarter. If Goldman had sold these shares today, their investment would have lost 36 percent its value, or $96 million. The share sales represented 44 percent of Goldman's holdings — meaning that Goldman's remaining holdings have still lost tens of millions in value. The sale and its size itself isn't unusual for a large asset management firm. Wall Street brokerages routinely buy and sell huge blocks of shares for themselves and their clients. In light of a recent SEC lawsuit arguing that Goldman kept information about a product they sold from their clients, however, the stock sale may raise fresh concern among Goldman's critics. Goldman is also a frequent target of liberals and journalists, including Rolling Stone's Matt Taibi, who famously dubbed the firm a "vampire squid." Two calls placed to Goldman Sachs' media office in New York Wednesday morning after US markets opened were not immediately returned, though Raw Story decided to publish the story quickly after the calls since the stock sale had been already noted online. Others also sold stock Other asset management firms also sold huge blocks of BP stock in the first quarter — but their sales were a fraction of Goldman's ...
Goldman dumps 44% of its BP investment 3 weeks before the Deepwater Horizon Sank ..... Firm's stock sale nearly twice as large as any other institution; Represented 44 percent of total BP investment The brokerage firm that's faced the most scrutiny from regulators in the past year over the shorting of mortgage related securities seems to have had good timing when it came to something else: the stock of British oil giant BP. According to regulatory filings, RawStory.com has found that Goldman Sachs sold 4680822 shares of BP in the first quarter of 2010. Goldman's sales were the largest of any firm during that time. Goldman would have pocketed slightly more than $266 million if their holdings were sold at the average price of BP's stock during the quarter.

BP Plc (NYSE:BP) is reportedly planning to raise $5 billion to $10 billion dollars starting as early as next week, as the company considers debt financing alternatives including bank loans or bond offerings to pay victims affected by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. A Reuters report from today says that Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS), Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE:CS), UBS AG (NYSE:UBS), and The Blackstone Group LP (NYSE:BX) are all advisory firms to BP, and are rumored to potentially help finance a deal. BP is also reportedly considering corporate bond sale of up to $10 billion, however, an exact plan for the potential offering has not been finalized. "Demand for any bond would depend on the specifics of the deal, including whether he debt is backed by BP's assets," Knight Libertas senior analyst Vivek Pal told Reuters, adding, "Investors would demand a large level of protection; no one wants to step in front of an open-ended liability claim." Founder of New York-based Covenant Review, Adam Cohen, also commented: "For shareholders, it means BP is going to be paying more interest each year and shareholders are going to be even further back in the pecking order for their share of BP's cash flow. On the other hand, a successful bond deal will signal confidence in BP and mean that even more investors - new bondholders - are committed to seeing BP survive - it makes bankruptcy more politically unpalatable." Shares of BP are trading up 0.69% Friday ...
