Nomura Securities has reiterated their "Buy" rating, and raised their price target for independent investment management firm, BlackRock, Inc.( BLK ) Thursday.

The firm has reaffirmed a "Buy" rating on BLK and increased its price target from $201 to $212. This price target suggests a 10% increase from the stock's current price of $190.18, and an 6.18% increase from the stock's YTD price of $178.24.

The increased price target is a result of higher base fees and net gains on investments, which have been offset by increased non-comp expenses.

BlackRock shares were up 97 cents, or 0.51% on Thursday afternoon.
