Is Ladder Capital under- or over-valued?

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 884x. In other words, Ladder Capital shares trade at around 884x 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.

Shorting Ladder Capital shares

There are currently 2.0 million Ladder Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Ladder Capital's "short interest". This figure is 11.8% down from 2.3 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)

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 601042.08955224). Ladder Capital's SIR currently stands at 3.35. In other words for every 100,000 Ladder Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3350 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 0.0178% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ladder Capital shares, roughly 18 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.

Ladder Capital share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.2% of net profits

Recently Ladder Capital has paid out, on average, around 3.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.05% 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 7.05% 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 14 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 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 $5.9932 up to $12.439. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LADR.US volatility(beta: 2.31)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 2.3063. This would suggest that Ladder Capital's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
