How much a stock's price changes over time is important for most investors, since price performance can both impact your investment portfolio and help you compare investment results across sectors and industries.
FOMO, or the fear of missing out, also plays a role in investing, particularly with tech giants and popular consumer-facing stocks.
What if you'd invested in CBRE Group (CBRE) ten years ago? It may not have been easy to hold on to CBRE for all that time, but if you did, how much would your investment be worth today?

Analysts are forecasting more upside for CBRE too.
Shares of CBRE Group have outperformed the industry over the past three months. In addition, the recent trend in the earnings estimate revisions for 2021 suggests a favorable outlook for the company. Its performance in the recent quarters reflects the benefits from diversifying across asset type, business lines, client type and geography, plus the expansion of its resilient business in recent years. The company is well poised to ride its growth curve in the upcoming days on the back of its wide real estate products and services offerings, healthy outsourcing business, strategic buyouts, technology investments and solid balance-sheet strength. However, stiff competition from regional and local players poses challenge. Also, unfavorable foreign currency movement and uneasiness in some economies is likely to impact its top-line growth.
The stock is up 7.67% over the past four weeks, and no earnings estimate has gone lower in the past two months, compared to 1 higher, for fiscal 2021. The consensus estimate has moved up as well.
