BlackRock (BLK) beats earnings – stock remains flat in premarket

BlackRock (BLK) beats earnings - stock remains flat in premarket

BlackRock (NYSE: BLK) released its Q3 2022 earnings report on October 13, beating analysts’ expectations on the top and bottom lines. In essence, the firm showed revenues of $4.31 billion, a -14.7% year-on-year (YoY) decrease, beating estimates by $140 million. 

Similarly, earnings per share (EPS) was $9.55, beating estimates by $2.28, while revenue decline was driven by lower markets and appreciation of the US dollar compared to other currencies. 

The firm also saw $65 billion of quarterly long-term net inflows, mostly in exchange-traded fund (ETF) instruments. At the time of writing, the stock remains mostly flat in premarket trading, despite the positive surprise on Q3 earnings.
