It would be the second time the bank is downgraded by S&P in less than a month.
On Nov. 29, the corporate credit risk assigned to the bank was taken down one notch by the ratings issuer, as part of a wider downgrade of the global banking industry resulting from a change in rating methodology.
Shares of Goldman Sachs, which were trading at just over $94 before the news broke, have been highly volatile in the past few minutes, and are currently trading at $93.43, up 1.55 percent for the day.
