2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Baron Funds Comments on Brookfield Infrastructure Partners LP - Aug 24, 2015

Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P. (NYSE:BIP) owns and operates global infrastructure assets (utilities, towers, transport, etc.) and is 30% owned by Brookfield Asset Management. We like the predictable (i.e., recurring) cash flow stream, believe management’s effort in accelerating growth is likely to bear fruit and consider our purchase price at roughly 20% discount to NAV to be very attractive.
