NEW YORK, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of BlackRock, Inc. and certain affiliated entities (collectively, "BlackRock" or the "Company") (NYSE: BLK). Such investors are advised to contact Peretz Bronstein or his investor relations analyst Yael Hurwitz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-697-6484.
The investigation concerns whether BlackRock and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On August 24, 2015 the U.S. financial markets became unstable on when the S&P 500 index dropped to 5.3% in the opening minutes of trading, and then closed for the day at 3.9%. At this time, hundreds of Exchange Traded Funds ("ETFs") traded at heavily discounted prices of their holdings and tracking index. One example: At on August 24, 2015 at 9:42am, Black Rock's iShares Select Dividend ETF dropped 35% to $48, its lowest price of the day. By contrast, the collective weighted values of the stocks held by the ETF at that time was $72.42, only a 2.7% decline.
This investigation concerns whether BlackRock failed to warn investors in the Company's BlackRock iShares ETFs that during this market instability, ETFs are not as liquid as advertised. BlackRock should have also notified its investors that the use of open market orders and stop loss orders could damage investors.
