Stocks in the news: Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Lions Gate


The following post rounds up the companies making headlines today:

Goldman Sachs (GS) has raised more than $1.9 billion after selling 3.3 billion Hong Kong shares part of its stake in Industrial & Commercial Bank of China as the U.S. investment firm seeks to repay government bailout funds.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) and American Express Co. (AXP), both of which were told by regulators last month they don't need fresh capital, will raise $5.5 billion after the Federal Reserve said any firm seeking to repay the U.S. rescue funds must first tap equity markets. JPM shares declined about 2 percent, AXP shares about 4 percent before the bell.
