CAPS member GingersBread elaborates on the bull case:
Brookfield is a well-diversified infrastructure company with smart management and good long-term growth prospects. ... There operations are well-diversified globally, from railroads in Australia to timber fields in Canada, and from ports in Europe to utilities in Chile. The company uses stable cash-generating businesses like urban utilities (literal monopolies) to fuel high-growth operations like airport and railroad construction that service emerging markets. Significant debt and leveraging will likely prove beneficial to the company long-term, but nonetheless represents a possible risk to the business.
