Is CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) Potentially Undervalued?

Simply Wall St

Today we're going to take a look at the well-established CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE). The company's stock saw a decent share price growth in the teens level on the NYSE over the last few months. As a large-cap stock with high coverage by analysts, you could assume any recent changes in the company’s outlook is already priced into the stock. But what if there is still an opportunity to buy? Let’s examine CBRE Group’s valuation and outlook in more detail to determine if there’s still a bargain opportunity.

View our latest analysis for CBRE Group

Is CBRE Group still cheap?

According to my valuation model, CBRE Group seems to be fairly priced at around 19% below my intrinsic value, which means if you buy CBRE Group today, you’d be paying a reasonable price for it. And if you believe that the stock is really worth $78.68, then there’s not much of an upside to gain from mispricing. Is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? Since CBRE Group’s share price is quite volatile, we could potentially see it sink lower (or rise higher) in the future, giving us another chance to buy. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.

What does the future of CBRE Group look like?

NYSE:CBRE Past and Future Earnings, February 21st 2020

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company's future expectations. CBRE Group’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 38%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? CBRE’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough confidence to invest in the company should the price drop below its fair value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on CBRE, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.

    The online retailer told customers that the service, Amazon Shipping, will be paused starting in June, according to the Wall Street Journal, which was first to report the change. Amazon is suspending the service because it needs people and capacity to handle a surge in its own customers' orders, the Journal reported, citing sources. "We regularly look at a variety of factors across Amazon to make sure we're set up in the right way to best serve our customers," an Amazon spokesperson told Reuters in an email confirming the halt in service.

    Trump’s personal stake in the malaria-drug maker Sanofi could be as small as $99

    As President Donald Trump has persistently discussed the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, critics have wondered about his motivation, given the drug's far-from-certain performance on the global stage as a treatment for coronavirus, and the Food and Drug Administration's refusal so far to approve it as a treatment for COVID-19. The New York Times says Trump has a “small personal stake” in Sanofi, the French drug manufacturer that produces the drug. The report doesn't say how small, but it notes that his three family trusts have investments in a Dodge & Cox mutual fund whose largest holding is Sanofi.

    8 Dividends In Danger Of Being Cut

    The sell-off has driven dividend yields of a number of S&P 500 stocks to their highest levels in years. But as attractive as a double-digit dividend may seem on the surface, a dividend is only as good as the company paying it. The quickest way to assess the reliability of a dividend is to look at a company's payout ratio.

    U.S. pushes back on call by OPEC+ to join big oil output cuts

    Saudi Arabia, Russia and allied oil producers will agree to deep cuts to their crude output at talks this week only if the United States and several others join in with curbs to help prop up prices that have been hammered by the coronavirus crisis. Global oil demand has dropped by as much as 30%, or about 30 million barrels per day (bpd), as measures to reduce the virus' spread have caused demand for jet fuel, gasoline and diesel to crash. While Saudi Arabia, Russia and other members of the group known as OPEC+ have expressed willingness to return to the bargaining table, they have made their response conditional upon actions by the United States and other countries that are not members of OPEC.

    Coronavirus crisis will leave 3 lasting scars, even if the economy recovers in fourth quarter, Pimco warns

    The U.S. economy is in the midst of one of the deepest, most painful recessions the country has ever seen, but, as long as the pieces fall into place, it could also prove to be one of the shortest, according to a blog post from Joachim Fels, global economic adviser at Pimco. “Unlike previous recessions, usually caused by the interplay of economic and financial imbalances, interest rate hikes, or oil price spikes, the trigger of the present crisis is an exogenous shock,” he wrote. “We are seeing the first-ever recession by government decree — a necessary, temporary, partial shutdown of the economy aimed at preventing an even larger humanitarian crisis.”

Suddenly, Chinese companies' opaque numbers are dinner-table conversation again, with the scandal sending other listings from the nation into a tailspin and threatening to close off the overseas market for new issuers.

    Ray Dalio Still Thinks ‘Cash Is Trash’ as Printing Presses Roll

    “Please remember that while it doesn't move around in value as much as other assets, there is a costly negative return to it,” the billionaire investor said during a Reddit Ask Me Anything event on Tuesday. “Having the world's printing press to produce the world's currency is the equivalent of having the world's most important asset, especially in times when so many people need the world's money,” he wrote before noting that what people ultimately value is health, education and being able to take care of family. Other Key Quotes:“We are now in an era of the most massive MP3/helicopter money monetary stimulation since WWII.”“I believe that increasingly there will be questions by bondholders who are receiving negative real and nominal interest rates while there is a lot of printing of money about whether the debt assets they are holding are good storeholds of wealth.”“I think that pursuing peace and savoring life, rather than fighting over wealth and power, is much wiser.”

    Zoom Sued for Fraud Over Privacy, Security Flaws

    In a complaint filed Tuesday in San Francisco federal court, the company and its top officers were accused of concealing the truth about shortcomings in the app's software encryption, including its alleged vulnerability to hackers, as well as the unauthorized disclosure of personal information to third parties including Facebook Inc. Investor Michael Drieu, who filed the suit as a class action, claims a series of public revelations about the app's deficiencies starting last year have dented Zoom's stock price -- though the shares are still up 67% this year as investors bet that the teleconferencing company would be one of the rare winners from the coronavirus pandemic. On Tuesday, Taiwan barred all official use of Zoom, becoming one of the first governments to do so.

    Bankers to small businesses: Don't do these things if you want to qualify for SBA loan relief program (PPP)

    A borrower can ask the SBA to forgive the loan and the interest if workers are not laid off. While community banks account for the majority of the 1,900 lenders that have processed PPP applications, interest from big banks customers are setting new records. Steve Jones, chief executive officer of Dogwood State Bank, one of North Carolina's newest community banks, said the bank has processed about 300 applications since Friday totaling about $80 million for an average of about $267,000 per borrower.
