Silicon Valley’s Most Popular Dealmakers

Information Score = More Optimistic - Less Optimistic

The Information subscribers appear to have a thing for Goldman Sachs. The investment banking giant, which has been trying to bolster its tech credentials for years, won our subscriber poll of investment banks in every category we asked about.

Subscribers identified it as the bank they’d most likely select to help go public, as well as the one that brings them the most interesting deals. Tech IPOs in particular have been a battle royale between Goldman and Morgan Stanley. The bank trailed Goldman in the category of firms subscribers would use for IPOs despite the fact its tally of deals has remained strong.

Also of note for this month’s survey: sentiment among our subscribers towards both the tech sector and the broader economy tanked.

The Information’s subscribers saw it coming: A few days before Apple reported anemic iPhone growth, our subscribers became bearish on Apple in our monthly survey. Attitudes towards big tech companies such as Amazon and Facebook remained solidly optimistic. Meanwhile, attitudes towards Twitter and Square both turned more negative, likely reflecting their plummeting stock prices.
