Brookfield has growing revenues and increasing reinvestment in the business, strong margins with a stable trend, and generally positive cash flows. However, the firm suffers from declining EPS growth and a highly leveraged balance sheet.

A Lower P/B Ratio Than Its Sector Average but Trades Above Its Graham Number:

Brookfield has a trailing twelve month P/E ratio of 73.7, compared to an average of 24.81 for the Real Estate sector. Based on its EPS guidance of $4.57, the company has a forward P/E ratio of 6.9. Brookfield's PEG ratio is 7.14 on the basis of the 10.3% weighted average of the company and the broader market's EPS compound average growth rates. This suggests that the company's shares are overvalued. In contrast, the market is likely undervaluing Brookfield in terms of its equity because its P/B ratio is 1.31 while the sector average is 2.24. The company's shares are currently trading 32.4% above their Graham number.
