The Blackstone Group L.P., together with its subsidiaries, provides alternative asset management and financial advisory services worldwide.

TheStreet Ratings rates Blackstone Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and poor profit margins.
