Is Arbor Realty Trust under- or over-valued?

Valuing Arbor Realty Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Arbor Realty Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Arbor Realty Trust's P/E ratio

Arbor Realty Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Arbor Realty Trust shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Arbor Realty Trust's PEG ratio

Arbor Realty Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Arbor Realty Trust's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Arbor Realty Trust shares

There are currently 5.8 million Arbor Realty Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Arbor Realty Trust's "short interest". This figure is 12% up from 5.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Arbor Realty Trust shares can be evaluated.

Arbor Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Arbor Realty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Arbor Realty Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Arbor Realty Trust shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Arbor Realty Trust's SIR currently stands at 4.82. In other words for every 100,000 Arbor Realty Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4820 shares are currently held short.

However Arbor Realty Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Arbor Realty Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Arbor Realty Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Arbor Realty Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Arbor Realty Trust shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0427% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Arbor Realty Trust shares, roughly 43 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Arbor Realty Trust.

Arbor Realty Trust share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 51.94% of net profits

Recently Arbor Realty Trust has paid out, on average, around 51.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Arbor Realty Trust shareholders could enjoy a 7.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Arbor Realty Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $1.34 per share.

Arbor Realty Trust's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Arbor Realty Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 30 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Arbor Realty Trust's shares ever split?

Arbor Realty Trust's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 29 August 2012. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Arbor Realty Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Arbor Realty Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Arbor Realty Trust's share price.

Arbor Realty Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Arbor Realty Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.1785 up to $19.93. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ABR.US volatility(beta: 1.87)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Arbor Realty Trust's is 1.8683. This would suggest that Arbor Realty Trust's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
