On July 18, Goldman touted oil with a year end target of $149. Why? The day before, it fell $5.31 to $129.29.
A month later, when oil was trading at $116, Goldman re-iterated it's $149 oil pump, and crude hit $121. Friday, Brent crude traded down $6.24 to $113.92.
Now that Goldman's oil call has been emasculated, it looks like we'll have to wait another month for Goldman to come up with another reason why oil should be at $149.
And unlike the boy who cried wolf, maybe the next time, we'll have a different reason from Goldman.
