Mixed bag when it comes to analysts' expectations. Most recently, Piper Jaffray's initiated (06/02/15) APO with a $33PT. Morningstar, which I think has the least conflicts of interests, has a $42 PT but is clearly wrong. CS has a $23PT, Citi $25PT, Bofa $27PT.
looks like a buy opportunity that will pay you close to 10% dividend to wait it out. It seems that different PE firms come in and out of favor, maybe based on if they bought some good firms or not in their portfolio. Tides shift, so looks like a good buy opportunity, unless I'm missing some big risk at APO.
Most PEs are just off highs for the year, APO is close to lows year to date. I thought rising rates were good for companies like APO, which had a huge credit division. Similar to how banks benefit from rising rates? Lawsuit is related to the price they offered for a company, correct? That isn't a damaging lawsuit.
Last year Carlyle was hated and had a bad year. I guess this year APO is going to be in the penalty box.
Anyone know why APO dropped so much in last couple of days on no news and flat overall stock market? Doesn't APO's massive credit division benefit in a rising rate environment? Rates based on treasury yields are at year highs so why is APO trending toward year low?
Looks like some small insider buying activity recently. Is there something we should be worried about with the declines or is this just a great buying opportunity going into a rising rate environment?
