NEW YORK: Goldman Sachs says its third-quarter profit was flat while revenue fell sharply as trading in bonds and other securities slowed. Goldman Sachs earned $1.43 billion after paying dividends on preferred shares, down slightly from $1.46 billion in the same period a year earlier.

Revenue dropped 20 percent to $6.72 billion from $8.35 billion, coming in below analysts' forecast of $7.41 billion, as trading in bonds, mortgage securities and currencies fell.
Goldman's stock, which was recently added to the Dow Jones industrial average, fell $4.2 or 2.6 per cent, to $158 in pre-market trading. The bank increased its dividend to 55 cents per share from 50 cents.
