BlackRock Downgraded at Standpoint Research to “Hold”


On Thursday Standpoint Research downgraded BlackRock, Inc. (BLK) as the analysts believe the investment management firm’s stock has reached its fair value.

BlackRock was downgraded from “Buy” to “Hold” by the Standpoint analysts.

Standpoint Research analyst Ronnie Moas commented, “BlackRock is near a three-year high and has hit our price target for fair value. The shares remain undervalued by 10% but we can no longer leave our highest rating attached to this name given the recent absolute (17.8%) and relative gains (1300 bps versus the S&P) since our recommendation. In my opinion BLK will track the market going forward.”
