Warning: Don't Trust Goldman (Especially on Oil Prices)

Goldman Sachs recently released a mildly bullish report on oil prices – an interesting reversal of the firm's prior bearish stance on crude.

And there are two key reasons why you should take Goldman's revised position with a grain of salt...

How the Biggest Crude Oil Price Shorter in the World Is Manipulating Prices

Yes, the crude oil price is in the midst of a massive rebound.

But the gains over the last two months have come from a large volume of bearish bets.

These Hidden Perks in the New Goldman Sachs Settlement Make Us Sick

Goldman Sachs Wants a "Revolution," so Grab These Shares Now

Goldman Sachs thinks they've spotted an economic anomaly – and they're warning it may force the firm to redefine the nature of capitalism itself.

In a research note, produced by a team of analysts and released earlier this year to clients, the firm highlights the fact that profit margins in the United States and elsewhere are historically high and that they may remain that way for a long time – especially when it comes to companies engaged in mergers, acquisitions, and stock buybacks.

In what may be the ultimate case of the pot calling the kettle black, Goldman says that's not how things are supposed to work.

I can't say I disagree.

Since 2007 we've talked about how today's markets are a completely artificial construct made possible by the Fed's incessant meddling, regulators who were asleep at the switch and who still aren't fully awake, and a completely out-of-control Wall Street machine.

You simply cannot engineer your way out of a crisis caused by too much debt by adding more debt.

Why?

Because it messes with the very relationships Goldman has evidently just latched on to.

Something has to give…

…just make sure it's not your money.

Here's how you can make sure it won't be - and a run-down on two stocks uniquely positioned to make triple-digit gains when this debt-ridden system falls apart...

Goldman Sachs Nailed for Umpteenth Abuse, Yet Continues to Set Fed Policy

Goldman Sachs has special ties to the Federal Reserve. Currently, former executives head up the Minneapolis, Dallas, Philadelphia, and New York Federal Reserve branches.

Yet just yesterday, the financial behemoth was fined $15 million by the SEC for lending practices that violated federal law. Goldman Sachs agreed to resolve the SEC's allegations — as usual, without admitting or denying the findings.

Here's how this "pay to make disappear" approach has been a routine practice for Goldman for years now...

Puppeteer Goldman Sachs Will Make the Fed Dance – Again

Four of the Fed's 12 regional branches will be run by former Goldman Sachs executives in 2016.

Considering the banking and investment firm's contribution to (and benefit from) the 2007 financial crisis, is that such a good idea?

We don't think so. Especially after looking at the evidence of such blatant collusion...

More Proof Goldman's Conviction Buy List Is a Lagging Indicator

Now, we love AAPL stock. It's Goldman's Conviction Buy List we don't trust – and neither should you.

Goldman's Conviction Buy List Has an Equally Sinister Cousin (NYSE: GS)

Don't trust investment advice from Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS).

The banking giant often bestows its "wisdom" on retail investors with such vehicles as Goldman's Conviction Buy List, as well as its quarterly chartbook updates.

Trouble is, Goldman's advice is wrong most of the time.
