Blackstone Exceeds Analysts’ Expectations Once Again With Q3 Earnings

The world’s largest alternative asset manager, Blackstone, a New York-based private equity firm, posted its stunning third-quarter earnings on Thursday. The invigorating results reflect the downward spiral of Blackstone rivals, in comparison, focusing on the significance of the fluctuations of oil prices & a stable U.S. stock market.

As a result, buyouts, real estate, hedge funds & credit, the major investment areas of Blackstone have enhanced remarkably within a year.

Generally, other established asset managers are obliged to sell out sometimes even if they head south, but Blackstone, on the other hand, keeps their holdings up to 10 years & they sell only when markets get better.

It has earned an economic net income, Blackstone says, which could be the key earning metric for U.S. private equity firms for unfulfilled investment gains or losses- approximately of $687 million after taxes, in contrast to a loss of $416 million a year initially.

So that makes an economic net income of 57 cents per share. However, analysts had anticipated Blackstone to have earnings of 48 cents, according to the report of Thomson Reuters.

There’s a dynamic growth in returns from real estate which is Blackstone’s biggest business asset. Performance fees exceeded quite proportionately nearly seven times, from a year ago.
