A very well-run business. It’s in a competitive space and there are tax changes that could make it more profitable. The limit is the intellectual capital of the people running the business. At these valuations, he wouldn’t be a buyer, and if he had holdings, he would take some profits by selling half.

The largest private equity company in the world. BX has raised a ton of money lately, but the trouble is how do they put this money to work? Low interest rates help, because they leverage a lot. They are in real estate, and loans, not just private equity--so well-diversified. Problem is, BX now competes heavily in private markets (with BAM-N, for example), an area which enjoys higher rates of return. There's a lot of money chasing fewer deals. However, BX is an incredibly well-run company.

It has been a fantastic global private equity business. They made a huge play at rolling up a lot of these industrial real estate portfolios across the world. They do all kinds of different asset allocations across the world. They announced they will convert from a partnership into a corp. so the share price increased due to anticipation of this being part of an index, thereby making all kinds of institutions need to own it because it is the index. He prefers ONEX-T to BX-N.

Trade tension exposure? He is not sure how their portfolio is exposed to the China trade tensions. Their success rides off credit availability (more is better for their company) and when they optimize the business before selling out of it (better when markets are weak). Strong markets and widening credit spreads make it tough right now. Keep it on the watch list though.

For CG-Q he has concerns about times when asset prices are bid up during strong market times. As an active asset manager, this can make their business more challenging. He would go for best in class in this category and that is BX-N.

They should do well long-term. They continue to raise money for their funds in real estate -- the latest was $20 billion to buy DreamGlobal. You probably want to wait for a better entry point. Yield 3.5%

They converted from an LP to a corporation which attracted a different shareholder base (index funds). This shift spiked their valuation. He owns BAM instead, which shares the same drivers as BX: low yields, pension plans and institutional investors. These stocks are essentially synthetic bonds with assets. Trades at 15x forward distributed earnings. BX is a well-run company in a shareholder-friendly space.

Really good company. Nice yield. Principal problem is it's run right up to fair market value. Earnings forecast has leveled out. Stock's coming to a peak of momentum to drive it higher.

2-year outlook They may change their corporate structure from a limited partnership to a regular tax-paying corporation. Also, their Q4 was volatile with revenues being only one-third compared to the previous year. Their share price is flat over a long period of time.

They have done a great job. They are raising a lot of money. It is still a limited partnership. When KKR converted to a company, you saw the stock price jump up on conversion because people then buy it because it is part of the index. (Analysts’ target: $41.08).
