Stocks Are Better Than Bonds

Although he’s chief executive of the world’s largest money management firm these days, BlackRock’s (BLK) Larry Fink made a name for himself as a fixed-income guru of sorts. His prowess as an analyst and manager in bonds built his reputation on Wall Street, which he obviously has continued to expand upon.

Dividend-paying stocks look particularly appealing now, he added. “If you just could get a 4% growth in equity markets and a 3.5% dividend, you’re earning 7.5%, basically approaching what your liabilities are,” Fink said. “Global liabilities are anywhere from 7.5% to 8% and you can’t earn your liabilities earning 3.5% in 10-year Treasuries.”
