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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Ladder Capital shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.5 million Ladder Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Ladder Capital's "short interest". This figure is 48.8% up from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ladder Capital shares can be evaluated.
Ladder Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ladder Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ladder Capital shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Ladder Capital's SIR currently stands at 2.32. In other words for every 100,000 Ladder Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2320 shares are currently held short.
However Ladder Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ladder Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ladder Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ladder Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ladder Capital shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0231% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ladder Capital shares, roughly 23 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 Ladder Capital.

Dividend payout ratio: 100% of net profits
Recently Ladder Capital has paid out, on average, around 100% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.17% 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 8.17% 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.
Ladder Capital'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.
Ladder Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 15 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Ladder Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.5321 up to $17.7334. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
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 2.3948. This would suggest that Ladder Capital's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
