The Wall Street powerhouse seems to have beaten the credit crunch, for the most part. It posted record sales and profit, thanks to its booming trading business - and the fact that it mostly stayed away from the mortgage-backed securities that got its counterparts in trouble.

The firm did take some small writedowns on its mortgage holdings and, like the rest of Wall Street, is facing lower returns in a weakened economy. Still, it did well enough to award employees record bonuses totaling $20.2 billion, up 23% from 2006.
