Last quarter, Goldman Sachs did what it's known to do and crushed earnings. Tomorrow, the bank reports for Q2 2013 before the bell, with a conference call to follow at 9:30 a.m.

Analysts are expecting an earnings per share of $2.82 (down from last quarter's $4.29) and revenue of $7.9 billion (down from last quarter's $10.09 billion).

Two things to pay special attention to in this quarter's release:

  • Debt and equity underwriting:  Those two sectors of Goldman's business saw the biggest jump in revenue last quarter, experiencing a 69% and 53% jump in revenue year over year, respectively. Total debt underwriting was up 63%. All of Wall Street amped up this business last quarter, but Goldman lead the charge.
  • Sales and trading: Last quarter Goldman's S&T team did better than anyone else's on the Street, but they were still down 7%.

See you bright and early.
