Currently there are 5 analysts that rate CBRE Group a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

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, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, NTS Realty Holdings ( NLP), down 13.0%, IFM Investments ( CTC), down 7.1%, American Realty Investors ( ARL), down 6.9% and Starwood Property ( STWD), down 4.7% , were all laggards within the real estate industry with American Capital Agency ( AGNC) being today's real estate industry laggard.
