Brookfield Asset Management Ltd. has had a bumpy start as a standalone public company. That may represent an opportunity for investors, according to some Wall Street analysts who are picking up coverage of the firm. 

Brookfield Asset has dropped roughly 13% since it began trading in New York on Dec. 12. It was spun out from its parent, now called Brookfield Corp., to create a investment-management company that intends to pay out the vast majority of its earnings in dividends.
