(A Top Pick May 1/17 - Up 23%.) The largest private equity company in the world. Has a great dividend yield. A great story. They are not a corporation therefore not on the S&P 500. With the tax changes there is a rumor that they will become a corporation and be part of the index and would get a bump. Outside of that, these guys have been very astute.

(A Top Pick Aug 10/17, Up 5%) Most of the return is from the dividend. It trades 8-9 times PE and pays a good dividend. If it were not a limited partnership, it would be in the S&P index. KKR-N is considering changing to a corporation for this reason and if it goes well, BX-N might do the same thing.

He won't comment on this company, but the space instead. In the private equity industry, the best time to buy assets is during economic distress when they're cheap. Those assets go into the company's funds and rise in value. The best times to buy PE companies is during pullbacks like 2008-9 and 2011 which then benefitted from the recoveries. Also, credit spreads are narrow now and if they widen that becomes a problem, because these companies borrow to finance their purchases. He's not involved in private equity.

(Past Top Pick on April 13, 2017, Up 24%) The largest private equity company in the world. A catalyst are the changing tax laws in the States. They're grown aggressively. They have $100 billion of cash to buy new deals. It's a good time to exit parts of their operation. Many US pension plans hire Blackstone to handle their private equity.

(January 12, 2018, Down 5%) The fees they earn off their business are consistently rising. BX could convert into a coporate structure from an LLP one; this means more people can own the stock. It trades at 10x earnings and pays an 8% dividend.

The success of this will be driven by interest rates remaining reasonable and continued growth in the economy. The MLP format changes will likely favour this one on balance.

He never liked this. It's too opaque. They may be a great money manager, but you don't know what they own. They don't disclose well. Yield above 10%.

People love the yield, around 8%. They've done well putting capital to work. A long-term story for 10 years, because that's the cycle they're investing in. He looks at private equity stocks in cycle terms. A Buffett-style holding.

(A Top Pick Feb.23, 2017, Up 23%) The largest private equity company in the world. With $100 billion on hand, they've made astute investments and now, as the markets rise, they can exit on them. (Structured like an LP, so not everyone can own it.) Trades cheaply. It may move into the S&P which will help them.

This company does private equity and is similar to Brookfield Asset Management, which is what she owns in Canada. They are the leader in their space. They are raising cash for new funds, which is usually a good time to get into a stock like this. She is considering buying but has not yet decided whether to buy it.

(A Top Pick January 16/17. Up 20.8%.) The largest private equity company in the world. Continue to do well. Numbers came out today and they were very good. Pays a high dividend yield of 6.5%. They have been very good at buying good companies when the market was difficult. The problem he sees is that the space is too crowded. The other aspect is that they get paid through carried interest, so they are not a corporation, so they are not in the S&P. If they convert to a corporation because of the tax changes, they could maybe be included in the S&P and get a valuation bump. He would hold it to the high 40s.
