Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. The company uses a lot of debt and so could be squeezed by higher interest rates. However, if the higher rates are accompanied by strong economic growth and inflation, the assets it holds will likely increase too. Insurance companies due well with higher rates. Unlock Premium - Try 5i Free

Should do well going forward in their 5 areas: property, infrastructure, credit, renewables, private equity. Will benefit as more institutions allocate funds to the types of alternative assets that BAM holds. Yield is 1.14%. (Analysts’ price target is $66.95)

The BAM-BPY deal where BAM will buy out this subsidiary. Caller is selling BPY on a gain. Should I take the BPY preferred (offered in this deal) or buy it on my own? He's looking for a dividend and believes in Brookfield management. If you can, get the preferred BPY in this deal, because it pays a good yield. To buy separately or not, he doesn't know. Most investors prefer to own BAM, because management holds a lot of shares. They do a very good job of buying interesting assets cheaply. Owning BAM is as good as owning other Brookfield stocks/businesses.

(A Top Pick Mar 13/20, Up 12%) She would buy it again. They're in 4 verticals: property, infrastructure, renewables and private equity. In 2019, they added Oak Tree Capital, a US company specializing in distressed debt, which doubled Brookfield's client base. BAM is well-positioned as management expects interest rates to remain low for a long time. More pension funds are putting money into alternative assets, which is BAM's business Brookfield is raising additional funds to deploy. Mark Carney will head their impact investing division. BAM has a great outlook.

(A Top Pick Mar 11/20, Up 11%) Was a play on bond yields shrinking. They have alternative businesses to bond yields. Asset management, infrastructure and renewable businesses. This stock would still work, but the property division is a headwind for them in the short term. The rest of the business is working well. He hopes that in the longer-term the real estate double down works for them.

Long-time big fan of this. Superb leadership that continues to allocate capital very well. They've spun out wonderful sister companies over the years. His only issue with it is that it always looks expensive, but that's a tribute to him. He wants to buy this at a lower price, but keeps missing his chance.

(A Top Pick Sep 02/20, Up 21%) The Brookfield stocks were underpriced, given their complicated structure. BAM is a good core name for anyone in the Canadian market. This will benefit from more infrastructure activity. The CEO feels that the market undervalues this a lot, and the CEO expects share price to increase exponentially. It's a core holding for a long time.

He expects BAM to take it over and it's a good thing to keep BPY within Brookfield/BAM. The deal is accretive for BAM which he really likes. About BPY, you don't want to own these assets (offices, large retail) during this pandemic. Better to own apartments and industrials. BAM fell 5% on news of the takeover, but investors don't understand how accretive this deal is. BAM is a fantastic asset allocator; he wouldn't bet against them.

Their proposal to acquire BPY saw the stock sell off by 5%. However, this sell-off has seen the price go down to his buy price of 13.5x adjusted funds from operations, around $50. A phenomenal compounder for longterm investors. Creates value efficiently for shareholders. There is a lot of demand for the types of assets they own in this environment. (Analysts’ price target is $61.69)

BAM vs. BIP.UN The Brookfield companies are complex. BIP is exposed to the large-office property market. Companies are reducing their footprint here, so he's less bullish in this sector. However, he expects massive private investment as governments sell infrastructure to pay down debt, so private companies like this can take advantage. He'd favour BIP for this reason.

Concerned about their debt levels Good point. It's a global asset manager of hard assets. There's a big wave of money that needs to find a home but can't go into the bond markets given very low rates. So, a lot of money uses Brookfield to buy hard asset and collect fees on them; this trend won't stop. BAM's success will continue. Their debt is tricky--Brookfield Property Partners makes up 15% of Brookfield, but BPP troubled because of it holds shopping malls. And yet, BPP's woes don't effect the rest of the Brookfield group. They run a very tight financial ship. BAM is a core holding.
