BlackRock Stock: My Top Financial Value Pick

BlackRock's proven business model, history of strong returns, and reasonable valuation make it a great value/anchor stock. Unlike many other established financial blue chips, BlackRock has more long-term tailwinds than headwinds. I expect BlackRock's return this decade to beat the S&P 500's return.

BlackRock: Woolly Mammoth Of Asset Managers Keeps Growing

BlackRock is the largest asset manager in the world and has AUM of $9.5 trillion. That's larger than the GDP of all countries on Earth except the US and China. And the company just keeps getting bigger - adding a whopping $81 billion in AUM in Q2 alone. Last week's lousy economic data, including a very disappointing jobs report, could be good news for stocks (and BlackRock).
