Over on CAPS, 1,220 of the 1,253 members who have rated Brookfield -- or 97% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Stars ValueArbitrage and ACMIP, both of whom are ranked in the top 3% of our community.

Late last year, ValueArbitrage described Brookfield in purely bullish terms:

Brookfield Asset Management is a best-in-breed asset management company focused exclusively on delivering value to shareholders by producing increasing, recurring high quality free cash flow.

In a more recent pitch from four days ago, ACMIP kindly updated our community on those objectives:

Recent earnings once again have demonstrated [Brookfield's] deft handling of the real estate downturn. Rents and occupancy rates at top tier properties are holding up and operating cash flow is still strong. Most importantly Brookfield has plenty of liquidity, which considering management's spectacular capital allocation history, should get current shareholders doing fist pumps of joy as [Brookfield] is now in the catbird seat to opportunistically take advantage of today's depressed asset prices for the benefit of long term shareholders.
