A profit at Goldman Sachs?

A final note on the way out this afternoon. We started today with Bank of America's earnings. The country's biggest bank has set aside more than 5 billion dollars to guard against credit losses.

What we didn't mention is that Goldman Sachs reported profits today too -- with its own set-aside.

$3.8 billion.

Theirs is for compensation, though.
