In a report published Wednesday, Deutsche Bank reiterated its Buy rating on Arbor Realty Trust (NYSE: ABR), and raised its price target from $7.50 to $9.50.
Deutsche Bank noted, “Reiterate Buy after solid 4Q results; 1Q developments. Given solid 4Q results (FFO beat our estimate) and positive developments since year end, we are reiterating our Buy rating on Arbor and increasing our price target to $9.50 per share. Since year end, Arbor has priced a $260 million CLO, raised $37m through a preferred offering, increased existing credit facilities by $30m, and closed a new $50m credit facility. As Arbor continues to originate new investments and reduce exposure to legacy portfolio issues, we expect shares to move towards our target.”
