Why Insiders Have Loaded Up on This 9.2% Yielder

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, December 12, 2017 | 1 comments »

No matter how talented a Wall Street analyst is, chances are they still don’t know about a company as well as that company’s own management. Being in the business every single day is what makes management the “insiders.” What this means is that when making investment decisions, it’s of utmost importance to check not only analyst ratings, but also a company’s insider ownership. This is because at the end of the day, when management is willing to bet with their own money, it’s a more solid vote of confidence.

Case in point, insiders at Ladder Capital Corp (NYSE:LADR) are willing to put their money where their mouth is. As of September 30, 2017, management and directors own approximately $180.0 million worth of the company’s shares, or around 11.8% of Ladder’s market capitalization. (Source: “Investor Presentation,” Ladder Capital Corp, last accessed December 4, 2017.) The most obvious reason why any investor would want to consider LADR stock is the generous payout. Ladder pays quarterly dividends of $0.30 per share. At today’s price, that translates to an annual dividend yield of 9.2%.
