Is Ladder Capital stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ladder Capital's P/E ratio

Ladder Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 86x. In other words, Ladder Capital shares trade at around 86x recent earnings.

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

Ladder Capital's PEG ratio

Ladder Capital's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.89. 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 Ladder Capital's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ladder Capital share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.42% of net profits

Recently Ladder Capital has paid out, on average, around 2.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ladder Capital shareholders could enjoy a 6.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ladder Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

While Ladder Capital's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ladder Capital is investing more in its future growth.

Ladder Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 17 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ladder Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ladder Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.8439 up to $12.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LADR.US volatility(beta: 2.22)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 Ladder Capital's is 2.2159. This would suggest that Ladder Capital's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
