What are analysts saying about BlackRock stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BlackRock stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "BlackRock’s third-quarter 2016 earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, primarily due to a decline in total expenses. However, lower revenues acted as a headwind. Further, increased dependence on overseas revenue and regulatory restrictions can negatively affect the company’s financials. In addition, increase in regulatory compliance costs, compensation costs as well as higher marketing costs are expected to keep expenses high, going forward. Nonetheless, the company has expanded largely via acquisitions, with most of its AUM growth attributable to the same. Moreover, the company remains well positioned to capitalize on opportunistic acquisitions, driven by its strong liquidity position. Also, its initiatives to gain market share in the ETF business are expected to drive revenue growth, going forward." (10/19/2016)
