    Income investors may also be attracted by a very competitive dividend, currently yielding just over 4.8 percent. However, investors should also keep in mind that private equity firms manage patient capital, so asset realizations and dividend distributions may vary widely Q/Q.

  • LONDON-- Blackstone Group LP(BX) has started a process to either sell or launch an initial public stock offering for U.K. resort operator Center Parcs, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Center Parcs, which buyout firm Blackstone has owned since 2006, could be valued at up to GBP2.5 billion ($3.75 billion) in an IPO or sale, said some of the people. It could raise as much as GBP750 million in a potential IPO, they added. The process is still early, cautioned one person, and so valuations could change.

    Blackstone decided after Christmas to begin a formal sale and IPO process, said one of the people. Blackstone this week sent requests for proposals to banks to handle the potential IPO process, said people familiar with the matter. Banks are expected to pitch in mid-February, they added.

    After buying Center Parcs, Blackstone invested over GBP100 million to update its hotels, restaurants and stores. Center Parcs has five forest and lake resort locations, each on about 400 acres, in the U.K. It caters to families looking for year-round holiday options, with indoor and outdoor facilities available. They had approximately 1.7 million guests in 2014.

  • Chinese Pushing Up Development-Site Prices -- Market Talk
    DOW JONES & COMPANY, INC. 9:31 AM ET 1/26/2015
    12:31 EST - Blackstone's (BX) A$415M sale of a marquee Sydney development site shows the prowess of Chinese investors. The property, located in the heart of Sydney, was sold to Dailan Wanda--which along with Greenland and Oceanwide have fast become property powerhouses on a global scale as they buy giant development sites in major cities around the world. That, in turn, has pushed up land values, making owners like BX rather content. It's up slightly today and up 6.7% this month.

    the IPO price is a non issue except for myth people...anyone still holding from the IPO has been a fool and I dont care what they do , etc...investing is objective not subject to the past..

  • Blackstone Group (BX) : "This is the only private equity company I recommend."

  • I see the current quarter est is .93 moved up alot but still below last years quarter of 1.35......guidance is always important and the year end payout number you can see this quarters earning estimates are all over the place..dont know how they can be such a tremendous range.. ..old times know I own over 3,000 shares since started to buyi around 14 in Oct 2012. and adding more in the years as this was my favorite situation for me....I am 76 and way too much for me to I am in the position to just protect my money and not be greedy, etc.. So I will be looking to lighten up as that is prudent for my situation... will see what the earnings, outlook and payout will be..always anxious to watch my stocks and the market.. I watch it every day and get up around 5am as this is my hobby.. best wishes to all.... hope for the best..

    Sentiment: Buy
