Guru Investment Theses on CBRE Group Inc

John Rogers Comments on CBRE Group Inc - Jul 22, 2014

In addition, global real estate company CBRE Group, Inc. (CBG) jumped +16.81% after a very strong quarterly earnings report. Its adjusted earnings per share were $0.25, $0.08 higher than expectations, on the basis of strong revenue overall and nearly across its units. The market seemed especially pleased that management saw more upside than downside for the rest of 2014.

Baron Funds Comments on CBRE Group Inc. - Feb 21, 2014

CBRE Group, Inc. (CBG)'s shares performed well in the fourth quarter and appreciated approximately 32% in 2013. We recently attended CBRE Group, Inc.'s annual investor day, which served to solidify our view that the company is well-positioned to benefit from the continued rebound in commercial real estate and the broader economy. As the world's leading global commercial real estate firm, we believe the company will benefit from a rebound in its leasing, investment sales, property management, and investment management businesses.We believe the company may increase its earnings in the next four years to more than $2.50 per share in 2017. If the company maintains its current valuation multiple of 16 times earnings (versus its historical peak multiple of 20 times earnings), its shares could reach $40 in the next three years or approximately 50% upside from the current price of $26 per share.



From Baron Funds fourth quarter 2013 shareholder letter.
