CBRE Group tops the list

According to the GuruFocus All-in-One Screener, a Premium feature, the following companies have grown their book value per share over the past decade through July 29.

Book value per share is calculated as total equity minus preferred stock, divided by shares outstanding. Theoretically, it is what shareholders will receive if a company is liquidated. Total equity is a balance sheet item and is equal to total assets minus total liabilities.

Since the book value per share may not reflect the company’s true value, some investors check the tangible book value to confirm their investment ideas.

During the quarter, we sold our investment in Apache (U.S.) and purchased CBRE Group (CBRE) (U.S.), one of the world’s largest commercial real estate service companies. Our research indicates that CBRE is one of the most highly regarded brands in the commercial real estate industry and possesses meaningful scale advantages, maintaining top market positions across most of its business units. About half of the company’s revenues are from stable and recurring fee-based businesses, such as property management, that, in our opinion, are growing rapidly. CBRE’s property management segment, combined with its brokerage business, differentiates its service offerings from some

Our largest detractor for the quarter was CBRE Group (CBRE), which declined as the company’s leasing and capital markets segments are directly exposed to the current cessation of economic activity. We still find CBRE an attractive investment. The company’s outsourcing segment is less cyclical than other parts of its business and should be a durable source of cash flows during the downturn. CBRE has low net debt and significant liquidity. Rather than fighting for survival, its management team will likely be acting opportunistically to add per share value through this downturn.

A discussion of the guru's 4th-quarter commentary

Oakmark Capital's Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio) just released his fourth-quarter 2019 commentary, and it is very interesting.

Nygren is a value investor, one that invest in companies for the long term believing their portfolio trades at a substantial discount to true business value. The firm focuses on free cash flows, intelligent investment of excess cash and a high level of manager ownership.

The Oakmark Fund returned 27% in 2019, but that’s actually a 4% underperformance to the S&P 500. In my book that’s nothing to worry about, but Nygren chose to

A report on CBRE Group (CBRE) touted the company’s improved business mix. Over the past few years, CBRE’s maintenance outsourcing segment has grown rapidly compared to its more cyclical brokerage segment—historically the larger part of the business. Importantly, the market tends to value recurring income, like that from service businesses, at a much higher P/E than businesses based on one-time transactions. Nevertheless, this still concluded that CBRE is fairly priced because its current P/E is approximately at its 15-year average.

What a difference a year can make! The Oakmark Select Fund returned 11.5% in the fourth quarter compared to the S&P 500’s 9.1% return. Unlike one year ago when fear ruled the day, the fourth quarter of 2019 was a welcome return to a market where business fundamentals mattered. For calendar year 2019, the Oakmark Select Fund increased 27.7% versus 31.5% for the S&P 500. While we still have to make up some ground due to a few years of below-market returns, we are encouraged by these much stronger results.

The largest contributors to performance during the quarter were

The demilitarized zone between value investing and growth investing is GARP territory

The demilitarized zone between value investing (bargain hunting) and growth investing (seeking a rapid increase in earnings) is GARP territory.

GARP stands for growth at a reasonable [rice. It’s an attempt to get some of the benefits of each of the two major stock-picking camps, growth and value.

Generally, I consider a stock to be in the value category if it sells for 15 times earnings or less. Growth stocks usually sell for 20 times earnings or more. From 15 to 20 is GARP land.

I’m a value investor. However, I occasionally will try a GARP pick. In this column,

The Oakmark Select Fund was down 3.4% for the quarter, trailing the S&P 500 Index’s 1.7% return. For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2019, the Oakmark Select Fund decreased by 10.3%, compared to a 4.3% gain for the S&P 500 Index.

As shareholders of the Fund and as stewards of your capital, we remain frustrated by how much our portfolio and the value style have recently underperformed the S&P. However, we are encouraged that the Fund owns a portfolio of securities that trades at a substantial discount to our estimate of its intrinsic value. We expect that when “value”

Stock picks from Generation Investment Management

Al Gore (Trades, Portfolio) is better known as a former U.S. vice president, but he now helps run Generation Investment Management, which currently manages more than $22 billion. While the firm focuses purely on “sustainable” investments, that hasn’t prevented it from beating the majority of hedge funds over the last 15 years. At one point, its 10-year track record was outpacing the S&P 500 (SPY) by nearly 500 basis points annually.

In May, it closed nearly $1 billion in financing for its new fund, the Generational Sustainable Futures Fund, which will focus on high-growth tech firms

The Oakmark Select Fund was up 13.5% for the quarter, very modestly trailing the S&P 500 Index’s 13.7% return. After a punishing December 2018, our portfolio reversed sharply in January (and was, in fact, up almost 15% that month alone, compared to 8% for the S&P 500). February and March felt like a continuation of December in our industrial and consumer discretionary investments, while our energy stocks continued to do well.

Our best performer in the quarter, up 36%, was Apache (APA). The company reported great results during the quarter and it is growing production more than expected, despite spending
