Timothy Vick presented his in-depth investment thesis on Brookfield Asset Management (NYSE: BAM) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2013.
The Bottom Line: Holding company that invests in fixed assets with stable cash flows, pricing power, and inflation hedges: commercial office property and malls (300 million sq ft), renewable power (200 hydro plants and 11 wind farms), infrastructure (farmland, rail lines, toll roads, ports, gas pipelines) and private equity (residential developments in the U.S. and Brazil). Annualized shareholder returns, ex. dividends, of 14% over 30 years and 18% over 10 years. BAM is a “next-generation” Berkshire Hathaway, with current CEO Bruce Flatt (48) at the helm. Non-traditional sources of moat: “wide palette to paint with,” corporate structure, management longevity, credit rating, deal-making reputation and principled capital allocation. Lack of traditional business model makes BAM hard to value by the investment community. Cheap at 1.3x book.
