Ignore The Chatter, It's Time To Own Ladder

Ladder Capital (LADR) is a diversified commercial real estate company that was formed in 2008 and went public in 2014 (as a C-Corp). The company's primary business strategy is to originate and securitize first mortgage loans on stabilized, income-producing commercial real estate properties.


  • I intend to add all of 5 of the commercial mortgage REITs to the Intelligent REIT Lab and that will increase my overall coverage universe from 7 companies to 12.
  • Ladder shares have pulled back by over 15% since September, creating a buying opportunity.
  • I am upgrading the company from a BUY to a STRONG BUY.
