A favourite of institutional investors. It's the best-managed large company in Canada, excellent at gathering large infrastructure assets like airports, railways and highways which have a long life and produce reliable returns. With bonds paying 0.5%, pension funds are attracted to assets that BAM buys and manages well. BAM is very well-placed, though it's taken a temporary hit. It pays only a 1.4% dividend, but contains a strong basket of assets that altogether are worth 50% more than the share price. A must-hold for all Canadian investors. (Analysts’ price target is $55.64)

Which Brookfield stock to buy for share and dividend increase? BAM owns pieces of the other Brookfield stocks. Brookfield is in a unique spot because they can gather a lot of assets using (a lot of) money on the side to invest). However, they have a lot of competition in the alternative assets space, like pension funds, that are looking to invest in assets in and outside Canada. Assets are cheap now, so it's an opportunity for BAM.

It is an extremely complex company. He admires that it is at the top of its pyramid. They have done an outstanding job. It is probably a fairly good investment in the long term to come.

(A Top Pick Jun 11/19, Up 9%) She continues to hold this. It manages over $500 billion of alternative assets. The company, in this low interest rate environment, will continue to do well. They bought 62% interest in a financial company that focuses on distressed credit assets. They have the option to buy the balance of that company over the next 10 years. This gives them about $75 billion of available cash for deployment.

BAM vs ARE? He likes BAM and it is a core holding. They are involved in infrastructure with great cash flowing assets. In a low interest rate environment it will continue to do well. ARE is benefiting from taking on fixed pay contracts, which he views as being a little more risky. He would favour BAM.

BAM vs. BIP For income, buy BIP; for capital appreciation, BAM. Both are well-run. BAM is the parent company and is one of the biggest asset managers in the world. BAM is solid and will be hunting for properties in this pullback; they are skilled investors. It's trading at a discount to NAV which means some downside protection It's a little difficult to understand all of BAM's moving parts and its reliance on various financing vehicles. (BPY is struggling, but will be a drag on BAM.) BIP and BAM will be fine long-term.

There is a lot more safety in the conglomerate than in the individual companies it holds. This is a good level at which to establish a long term position.

Work from home? Scotiabank released a report saying it is trading at a discount and is good value. Retail holdings is only about 6% of their revenues. He thinks the market is overly punishing them. Another issue is that they may be a little too exposed to Brazil. A good opportunity to buy a Canadian company with a global franchise. He owns it and would accumulate here.

He'd buy it today. Brookfield thrives in downturns, such as 2008, buying assets/properties when there's blood on the streets. Management was buying back a lot of shares in the March sell-off. BAM buys alternative (to fixed income) assets. So, with interest rates near zero, BAM is attractive. BAM's 5-year plan (from late 2019) projects a 20% annualized return in the next five years. Good to own for the long term.

Dynamite managers of long life assets. The various buckets are attractive as alternatives. If rates went higher, then some of their alternative assets could be challenged. It is a very stable business model. They have been able to raise enormous amounts of money to invest in long life assets and it is a rock solid center to a portfolio.

Long term hold? They own this one. At current prices levels in the mid-$40s it is a good buy. They have a long term view and their CEO has had a recessionary view of the economy for the past several quarters. She thinks they will use a market down turn as an opportunity. When they reported last week, they mentioned a 2018 mall acquisition with the intention to re-purpose it to multi-purpose use. In a world of low or negative interest rates, holding hard assets is the way to go. She would be a buyer here.
