Snapshot of the Week: BlackRock

I begin 2019 with an addition of my popular stock series.

As part of a new concept called Snapshot of the Week , I’ll give you short summaries of stocks that look particularly interesting to me.

This week’s focus: US asset manager BlackRock.


My Stock Screener

I use my own stock screener to identify companies that perfectly fit my investment strategy. It determines the attractiveness of a stock based on 4 assessment criteria and finally leads to my personal screening result, which I call Dividend Diary score (also DD score or fka JiR score).

More information about my stock screening process can be found here:

Companies with a Dividend Diary score of

BlackRock in my Stock Screener

BlackRock currently scores a Dividend Diary score of 9.0 bonus points.

Conclusion: BlackRock is (almost) a Buy Candidate

With a Dividend Diary score of 9.0 bonus points, BlackRock could shortly become a buy candidate for me. Should I initiate a position in this company, I’ll let you know as soon as I make the purchase.

  1. Good idea to introduce the snapshot of the week. A Compact overview is always useful.

    Regarding BLK: as you might know, I like the financials at current prices. Have boosted my exposure to this sector by buying BLK, BAC, ALV and JPM in November and December. BLK has strong fundamentals and looks undervalued.

    1. Hi Alex,

      Thank you very much for your feedback. I hope our snapshots are of help to other members of the DGI community as well.

      I recognized that you increased your exposure to the financial sector. As you might know, I already own small positions in Allianz and Munich Re. However, I’m still missing a bank or an asset manager in our portfolio.

      Having a look at our stock screener, I’m currently favoring an investment either in BlackRock or in one of the big Canadian banks. Let’s see which one will become a buy candidate first.

      – David
