BlackRock shares will hold up in market correction, says JPMorgan

BlackRock shares will hold up better than peers in a U.S. market correction, JPMorgan analyst Kenneth Worthington tells investors in a research note. The analyst notes that with U.S. equity markets reaching all-time highs, he increasingly hears investor concerns about investing in asset managers. He believes BlackRock has demonstrated that it can maintain positive sales and organic growth even when equity U.S. markets sell off. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $551 price target.

Consolidation wave approaching Asset Management industry, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys sees multiple headwinds - including distribution challenges, intensifying fee pressure, new regulation, and a weak organic growth outlook for active management - facing Asset Managers and believes that while M&A may not solve the challenges it can help firms adapt to better navigate the shifting landscape. The analyst, who believes "this time is different," thinks scale can help and predicts a wave of large-scale consolidation is approaching for the industry. Brokers and Asset Managers covered by Morgan Stanley include WisdomTree (WETF), Waddell & Reed (WDR), T. Rowe Price (TROW), Franklin Resources (BEN), Janus Capital (JNS), BlackRock (BLK) and Invesco (IVZ).
