Cushman & Wakefield Is Poised to Grow
We expect near-term turbulence but healthy growth in the long term.
Cushman & Wakefield (CWK) is the third-largest commercial real estate services company in the world, behind only CBRE CBRE and Jones Lang LaSalle JLL. It has seen its share price crater as the result of a confluence of concerns stemming from the weakness of the commercial real estate market amid the coronavirus pandemic. Although we expect Cushman & Wakefield to experience some near-term weakness, we think the shares are undervalued.
The company has overseen a boom in the commercial real estate services industry since the nadir of the real estate-driven global financial crisis of 2007. As the third-largest player in the space by market capitalization, Cushman & Wakefield has benefited disproportionately from various tailwinds that have underpinned its impressive run of growth. Key to this success has been the company’s industry-leading brand reputation and a platform that melds complementary business lines in areas such as property sales, leasing, project management, and outsourcing to serve its corporate and institutional clients.
