Goldman Sachs (GS) Max Chart (Yahoo Finance)


We can see that GS was trending neutral for sometime until a jump on October 1st 2020. The company has had increasing annual top-line revenue and they've delivered consistent beats during their last 4 earnings. When we invest in long-term holds, we typically like to see a consistent, strong upwards trend.
