How Analysts View Blackstone



Consistent ratings

The Blackstone Group (BX) is being tracked by 14 analysts in December 2017. Six have given it “strong buy” ratings, two have suggested “hold” ratings, and six have recommended “buys.” No analysts are suggesting “strong sell” or “sell” ratings on BX.

Ratings on the alternative asset manager haven’t changed over the past few months.

Blackstone could, however, witness more positive ratings in the coming months. The geographies in which it plans to make investments have positive outlooks, which could benefit the company.
