This stock is a personal holding of mine through my investment club and a stock I plan on adding to my personal portfolio this week.

Sales have gone up an average of 16% per year since 2009. EPS has gone up an average of 20% per year since 2008, (including a horrible 2009, when the company lost money). The pretax profit margin has been expanding over the last 4 years, as has the earned-on-equity. The debt has been falling the past 2 years, and is now below 20% DTE, which is a good thing.

The current P/E is significantly above the trailing 4 year average, so this stock is expensive on that measure, but the PEG ratio is below 1, which makes it cheap by that measure. The stock pays a very small dividend, (about 1/2%), so not much to cheer about there.

I have hopes that this stock could more than double over the next 5 years. Add in that small dividend and this stock could earn me 18% per year for the next five years. That is a return I would be very happy to receive.

The low-interest environment continues to favor selective realestate investments. Jones Lang LaSalle is a strong buy for the intermediate term.

I believe JLL will outperform the market over the next 2 years given the high transaction volumes projected in institutional real estate. In addition, there is significant commercial RE debt coming due which forces either refi's, re-capitalizations or sales. Also, there is a general trend of Fortune 1000 firms hiring third party firms such as JLL to manage their facilities. Hiring global firms such as JLL can significantly drive down occupancy costs. This savings can be realized in all product types, office, warehouse/distribution and manufacturing. This is an extremely well run firm that benefits from wide variety of revenue sources: investment sale, agency leasing, tenant representation, project management and consulting.

Should improve with real estate market recovery. Battered down too much too.

I'm going to give a thumbs down here for the short-term. Stock is up 35% since the October earnings report. I fear a correction in the Asian markets will affect JLL. I'll be a buyer then.

This is a very well managed company that has survived many recessions. It will only come out of this one even stronger. But in regards to where we are today, this is a cyclical stock, you buy it when the P/E is at its highest, not lowest. The P/E is close to 58, earnings were a disaster last quarter and probably will be again this quarter, but the recovery is in sight. The P/E is at its highest just before the cyclical company turns. I bought some more today and feel very confident that in 2-4 years I will be soundly beating the market. The time is now to buy into cyclicals and when you can find a very well run company like this one, you jump in and enjoy the ride. Fool On!

Continiuing to add to their customer portfolio by leaps and bounds during the downturn which will put them in a great position for the upswing. I expect this stock to explode!

My daughter worked for JLL and was laid off, with an excellance performance record. She was laid off by a man that she had never met, on the advice of a ruthless credit taking lady boss. My daughter's performance record was stolen by her immediate lady boss. This was a woman that quit JLL to form her own company and failed. JLL hired her back not knowing of her terrifically bad attitude.

JLL is a management company, and cannot be laying off the best and brightest in lieu of office gossip from the not so bright. While I have been conditioned to realize that this this is corporate life, it should be called and considered by investors.

Interesting enough, my daughter's first job upon being hired, was to compile the audit between JLL and the Bank of America. She worked endless hours on this audit, giving up opportunities to go out in the field. She took this job very seriously, and in the end, when she had completed her work, was told that audits don't mean that much. I still wonder if someone else took the credit, or the audit was not positive to JLL and was thrown out.

I don't care what size of business one talks about. Honesty is important. I would say that overall, JLL has many wonderful employees doing their best.

When a management company cannot distinguish the problems, however, that in its self is a problem.

being optimistic on the general recession outcome... I dont think commercial real estate value will be completely wiped out.

JLL is a great company in that mess of REITs... I would say there is still some room to go down but I'm not trying to figure out where the bottom is... LONG hold.

This is a bargain. A P/E of under 7, selling under book value, and offering a 3.3% dividend. JLL will recover quicker and stronger than other companies as the economy improves...get in now. I am.
