    WhatsApp? Not Goldman Sachs. The world's top deal adviser for nine of the past 10 years, Goldman Sachs, has been notably absent from 2014's largest mergers and acquisitions, including Facebook's $19 billion deal to purchase mobile messaging service WhatsApp. Normally the go-to-banker for big deals, Goldman has missed out on the top five transactions in the young year, according to Thomson Reuters data.
