| Arbor Realty Trust is a real estate investment trust. Co. operates through two business segments: its Structured Loan Origination and Investment Business (Structured Business) and its Agency Loan Origination and Servicing Business (Agency Business). Through its Structured Business, Co. invests in a portfolio of structured finance assets in the multifamily, single-family rental and commercial real estate markets primarily consisting of bridge and mezzanine loans, including junior participating interests in first mortgages and preferred and direct equity. Through its Agency Business, Co. originates, sells and services a range of multifamily finance products. The ABR YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the ABR YTD return page and across the coverage universe of our site,
is a measure of the total return for a given investment year-to-date for the current calendar year
(up to the end of prior trading session). Arguably, choosing the current calendar year for a measurement
period is on the one hand completely arbitrary, but on the other hand a year-to-date look can be extremely
useful in the context of our country's tax system which taxes gains and income on a calendar year basis.
Thus, researching Year-To-Date Returns is good practice for investors — whether ABR YTD return or other benchmarks/peers
— and when doing so it is also important to factor in dividends, because a financial instrument's YTD return is
more than just the change in price if that instrument pays a dividend or coupon. Our website aims to empower investors
by performing the ABR YTD return calculation (with any dividends reinvested as applicable), and to provide a
coverage universe of many stocks and ETFs to be able to compare YTD returns.
