NEW YORK (AP) — Goldman Sachs says its net income fell 58 percent in the last three months of last year because of lower investment banking fees in a quarter marked by choppy financial markets.

The investment bank said Wednesday that it made $1 billion, or $1.84 per share, from October through December. The results beat the estimate of $1.28 per share from analysts surveyed by FactSet, a provider of financial data.
