TheStreet Ratings rates CBRE Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth and notable return on equity. 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, Elbit Imaging ( EMITF), down 9.6%, American Realty Investors ( ARL), down 6.7%, Vestin Realty Mortgage II ( VRTB), down 6.1%, and Homex Development ( HXM), down 5.6%, were all laggards within the real estate industry with American Capital Agency ( AGNC) being today's real estate industry laggard.
