BlackRock's Doll: Buy More Risk!

BlackRock vice chairman and global chief investment officer of equities Bob Doll says it's time to re-introduce risk into portfolios.

"My view has been that we're in a bottoming process, and I think that within portfolios, the uni-dimensional 'I only want quality' has to be augmented here," he told CNBC. "I think portfolios need to, slowly but surely, add some risk to them."

Recommendations:

He has some evidence to back up his assertion.

"I look at baskets of stocks," Doll explained. "My quality basket is Amgen , Kroger , and Exxon (Mobil) , and my low-quality is Capital One (Financial) , Toll Brothers , and Valero ."

Doll's conclusion? He declared: "The second group handily beat the first group!"

Disclosures:

Disclosure information for Bob Doll was not immediately available.
