Buy
BlackRock downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman
Goldman analyst Alexander Blostein removed BlackRock from the Conviction Buy List given expectations for a deceleration in near-term organic fee rate growth, which will limit multiple expansion. The analyst maintains his Buy rating and $400 price target saying BlackRock will deliver industry leading organic growth, but a more difficult mix shift could pressure the firm's overall fee rate/organic revenue growth.

Legg Mason makes sense as target for Japanese investment, says Gabelli
Gabelli analyst Macrae Sykes noted that Legg Mason was mentioned yesterday in a report as a potential target for a strategic investment for a Japanese firm, which he believes would make sense as Japanese firms look to non-Japanese investments to improve returns. Legg Mason already has a 10% Asian investor in Shanda Group, notes Sykes, who tweaked his model slightly after Legg Mason reported AUM of $733B for the month of September. The analyst has a Buy rating on Legg Mason shares.

Legg Mason EBITDA guidance points to Q3 upside, says Citi
Citi analyst William Katz believes the Q3 EBITDA guidance provided yesterday by Legg Mason points to earnings upside in the quarter. The analyst's math estimates the outlook translates to a 58c GAAP EPS mid-point equivalent, or 3c above consensus. The stock's non-reaction to the outlook presents a buying opportunity, Katz tells investors in a research note. He maintains a Buy rating on Legg Mason with a $50 price target.

Legg Mason shares could jump nearly 50%, says Wells Fargo

Invesco risk/reward ratio attractive, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that the 11% drop in Invesco's shares this year probably reflects macro issues rather than fundamentals. The firm thinks that the company has a number of potential positive catalysts in 2H16, including improving flows and stronger equity markets. It says that the company's relatively low valuation versus its peers "offers downside protection" going forward. Wells keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
