TheStreet Ratings rates CBRE Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

On the negative front, American Spectrum Realty ( AQQ), down 8.1%, New England Realty Associates ( NEN), down 5.7%, Roberts Realty Investors ( RPI), down 4.6%, and Maui Land & Pineapple Company ( MLP), down 4.5%, were all laggards within the real estate industry with Digital Realty ( DLR) being today's real estate industry laggard.
