Judging by David Hogg's past success, now is probably a good time to buy Vanguard and BlackRock funds.
One of Parkland, Fla.'s most prominent student activists on stopping gun violence has called for a boycott of Vanguard and BlackRock, two of the world's biggest investors in gunmakers.Hogg's call for a boycott already appears to be falling flat as he only managed to garner a few thousand retweets:
Fellow Parkland student Kyle Kashuv called Hogg a "clown" in the comments:
BlackRock's Democrat CEO Laurence Fink has already said they've made funds for people who don't want gun stocks (few were interested).
As they're both mega-corporations, both companies are pretty much already on board with an anti-gun agenda, so they're an odd target for a boycott.
BlackRock is the top shareholder in gunmakers Sturm Ruger (RGR) and American Outdoor Brands (AOBC). It's the second-largest shareholder in Vista Outdoor (VSTO).As I reported on Tuesday, Hogg's boycott of Laura Ingraham backfired epically with Ingraham getting record ratings on the week she returned and at least one advertiser who joined the boycott reversing their decision.
