Hedge fund managers like David Einhorn, Bill Ackman, or Carl Icahn became billionaires through reaping large profits for their investors, which is why piggybacking their stock picks may provide us with significant returns as well. Many hedge funds, like Paul Singer’s Elliott Management, are pretty secretive, but we can still get some insights by analyzing […]

Ladder Capital Corp (LADR) could be a stock to avoid from a technical perspective, as the firm is seeing unfavorable trends on the moving average crossover front.

Ladder Capital (LADR) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of -2.44% and -12.78%, respectively, for the quarter ended March 2019. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?

Ladder Capital (LADR) doesn't possess the right combination of the two key ingredients for a likely earnings beat in its upcoming report. Get prepared with the key expectations.
The markets are moving higher again today, driven by the U.S.-China trade talks that are going on. Today, President Donald Trump is meeting with Vice Premier Liu He as the talks wrap up for the week.I'm not sure why the markets are so keen on the talks when no one really has any idea what is actually being accomplished. But we have a pretty good idea that both sides with come out saying they prevailed in the end, and the market will rally on that.Then again, there's always the old adage that you buy the rumor and sell the news, so maybe that's what's going on. There's also the fact that the Chinese are very patient and resolute negotiators. They aren't going through major national elections next year.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWhatever the case, stocks across the board are in rally mode, eclipsing the losses that they suffered in the fourth quarter of last year. * 9 High-Growth Stocks to Buy Now for Monster Returns But there are still some bargains in very hot industries that won't be rattled one way or another by the U.S.-China negotiations. Below are seven cheap stocks that make the grade -- low price-to-earnings ratios and Portfolio Grader A ratings for earnings. America First Multifamily Investors LP (ATAX)America First Multifamily Investors LP (NASDAQ:ATAX) buys, holds and sells federally tax-exempt federal revenue bonds that are issued to provide construction for multifamily residential properties. Those properties include public housing, student housing, senior living centers and the like.ATAX is set up as a limited partnership rather than a real estate investment trust (REIT). However, both recognize income the same way and are obligated to distribute net profits to shareholders. ATAX does this through its hefty 7.5% dividend.This is a very consistent business and ATAX is an interesting blend of a financial company and a REIT. And given the fact that both sectors have been on a tear recently, it's no surprise ATAX is up 18% year to date. But even if that growth cools, you're still sitting on a generous dividend that significantly outperformed the broad market all by itself. Ladder Capital (LADR)Ladder Capital (NYSE:LADR) is another unique company that operates as a REIT but is focused on the commercial real estate financial services side more than owning and operating properties.Again, it has a giant dividend that around 9% and with the special, larger dividend it issued at the end of last year it put the total dividend around 12.5%.The compelling thing about this sector moving forward is, the rollback in financial regulations that has been underway in the past few years are allowing more financial institutions to lend again. * 7 Healthy Dividend Stocks to Buy for Extra Stability Since the 2008 market crash, regulations have made it difficult for banks to lend without jumping through significant hoops. This made it tough for local and regional players to compete with larger institutions. Those roadblocks are now gone for the most part and LADR should be a big beneficiary as property sales ramp up. CVR Energy (CVI)CVR Energy (NYSE:CVI) is a holding company that operates two divisions. One is a petroleum refiner and the other is a nitrogen fertilizer maker.The energy patch has been on a roll this year and that has certainly helped CVI; the stock is up 29% year to date and 34% in the past 12 months. Add to that its nearly 7% dividend and you have pretty compelling combination.What's more, even after the run it has had, CVI stock is still only trading at a forward P/E around 13.You can be sure that the expanding economy means that CVI's energy division will reap the benefits of increasing demand. And if there's a deal with China, then fertilizers will boom because farmers will be back in action.CVI was founded in 1906, which means it has seen a lot of ups and downs over the years, and it has found a way to flourish through them all. Denbury Resources (DNR)Denbury Resources (NYSE:DNR) is a unique exploration and production (E&P) energy company. It operates in the Gulf Coast and Rocky Mountain regions of the U.S. It has been an upstream player since the 1950s.At this point, its focus is recovering oil from fields and wells that have seen previous extraction and use its proprietary CO2 enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technology to get the remaining reserves from the wells.The science behind getting oil out of the ground is a bit more complicated than many outside the oil industry realize. And a some point it becomes expensive for many E&Ps to get every last drop of reserves out of wells.That's where DNR comes in. It can buy a property with proven reserves cheaply and get the remaining oil out with its CO2 EOR. * 10 Smart Money Stocks to Buy Now Its forward P/E is a mere 3, yet the stock is up 26% year to date. But remember, this is a volatile sector, so this won't be a steady ride. Deckers Outdoor (DECK)Deckers Outdoor (NYSE:DECK) is footwear maker that owns some of the biggest sporting brands in the business. The stock is up 51% in the past 12 months and up nearly 13% year to date. And it's still trading at a forward P/E of 17.5.Its lifestyle brands include UGG, which originated in 1978 when an Australian was in California and built the brands signature boots using shearling linings and leather exteriors. It became a wildly popular brand a couple decades ago and now the line has grown extensively, along with its new spinoff Koolaburra by UGG.Its performance brands include Hoka One One, which are now the distance and training shoes of choice to serious runners, or people who want to look like serious runners. Teva was the pioneer outdoor sandal company that was launched in 1984 and continues to be one of the top outdoor footwear brands around.Finally, Sanuk is another Southern California brand that embodies a simple look with quality materials. Its name is derived from the Thai word that means "fun."It also has a wholesale division that sells directly to department stores and others that want to brand their own products.As long as the consumer is strong, DECK will continue its run. DSW (DSW)DSW (NYSE:DSW) is the other end of the shoe niche. It has more than 500 stores across the U.S. as well as an e-commerce website.Essentially, DSW is a big-box shoe store, carrying scores of name brands and even more styles of those brands. It's a one-stop shop for shoes, especially if you have a family and the kids and adults all need new shoes.As the economy continues to expand, consumers are more comfortable spending. But they have also learned that they can find name brands without paying premiums in stores like DSW. And that habit hasn't changed.It's also why DSW blew out Q3 earnings expectations (released in mid-December) and saw same-store sales and revenue blow past last year's numbers. It raised guidance for the year as well. It's no surprise the stock is seeing upgrade from analysts. * 7 Financial Stocks With Accelerating Growth The P/E is one of the highest in the group, but once Q4 and year-end numbers are in, its current P/E won't look so high. And on top of it all, it delivers a respectable 3.5% dividend. Photronics (PLAB)Photronics (NASDAQ:PLAB) is a Connecticut-based tech firm that has been around since 1969.It specializes in a process called photomasking. Essentially, what that means it makes a photographic pattern that is used to build integrated circuits and semiconductor wafers. Chipmakers then shine an ultraviolet light through the mask and they build chips and circuits from it.These days, PLAB specializes in photomasking for flat panel displays and has plants Europe, Taiwan, Korea and the U.S. It's a very specialized sector and PLAB carries a market cap around $700 million.But PLAB has a solid book of business and now that tech is back, PLAB should continue its run. The stock is up 36% in the past 12 months but is trading at a PE of just 17. There's plenty of headroom here, especially as tech firms are back in the markets good graces.Louis Navellier is a renowned growth investor.

Usually, when I run my detailed screens across my huge Portfolio Grader database, I have a pretty good idea of what is likely to show up. Not this time …I figured that when I ran a screen for companies that were seeing accelerated growth I would see some financial technology (fintech) stocks that were coming back from last year's beating, or I would see a bunch of banks or financial services providers.What I didn't expect was a slew of real estate investment trusts (REITs) woven in with interesting financial companies. But that's what I got. Surprises like this are good for your portfolio … it means my selection process is still objective -- otherwise, I wouldn't be able to surprise myself!InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Strong Buy Stocks With Over 20% Upside The seven financial stocks with accelerating growth that I have highlighted below include a handful of REITs in dynamic sectors, with a few top-rated financial stocks thrown in for good measure. Rexford Industrial Realty (REXR)Rexford Industrial Realty Inc (NYSE:REXR) is an interesting REIT in the fact that it is very focused on one particular region. Most REITs tend to specialize in a sector but diversify their markets.REXR has chosen to keep it simple and focus on one thing (for now at least): industrial property in Southern California. Granted, this is the largest industrial market in the U.S., so there isn't a lack of opportunity.What's more, the ports in Long Beach and LA are the 2 biggest ports in the U.S., so that helps keep industrial property in demand.While REXR delivers a nice 2.1% dividend yield, it's still in a big growth phase now. REXR stock is up nearly 19% year to date and 25% in the past 12 months. If the U.S. and China hammer out a trade deal, its upside is significantly bigger. In the fourth quarter, REXR beat on earnings and, although revenue was soft, it was up 22% year-over-year. Ladder Capital (LADR)Ladder Capital Corp (NYSE:LADR) is commercial property REIT that also is involved on the financial side of the game as well. It's been around for six years now but has established itself as a very attractive income machine.For example, last year, it delivered a nearly 8% dividend and then handed out a special dividend at the end of the year on top of it all, pushing its total dividend to above 9%.This year, the dividend is around 7.8% (not including the special dividend) and LADR stock is up roughly 13% year to date. And this year should be a busy one for LADR since rates have slowed, it means demand will grow while rates remain low.LADR is well diversified -- both by the location of its property financing as well as the types of properties it finances -- and is reasonably priced, selling at a P/E of 8.79, even after its solid run so far this year. Community Healthcare Trust (CHCT)Community Healthcare Trust Inc (NYSE:CHCT) has a stock chart that makes it look like it's some high-flying tech company or biotech with a major breakthrough drug.CHCT is up roughly 50% in the past 12 months and 24.2% year-to-date. And that doesn't include its 4.7% dividend.This REIT focuses on the healthcare sector, buying properties that it then leases to healthcare systems, doctors, hospitals and other healthcare service providers, like urgent care, clinics and healthcare office buildings.Healthcare is one of those megatrends that will endure, regardless of what's happening to the economy, or what party is in the control in Washington. As baby boomers start to hit their 60s, the rising demand for healthcare will be there whether Congress does anything or not. Innovative Industrial Properties (IIPR)Innovative Industrial Properties Inc (NYSE:IIPR) certainly has a dynamic name for REIT. But that's because it is in one of the most dynamic sectors in the market today - cannabis.IIPR owns and manages industrial properties and is one of the leaders in California in leasing facilities to state-licensed operators for medical marijuana cultivation. Since it is one of the pioneers, it has name recognition, which gives it a competitive moat, given state regulations and similar barriers to entry.It is also a white-hot investment sector, so it's no surprise that IIPR stock is soaring. Year-to-date it's already up 31%, and in the past 12 months, it has delivered a 132% return.Obviously, that kind of growth won't be a regular thing, but even at those levels, its dividend is still around 2.2%. While it may have a few more years of this kind of growth, even once it settles down, this is a smart long-term play on this sector. PennantPark Floating Rate Capital (PFLT)PennantPark Floating Rate Capital Ltd (NYSE:PFLT) basically is a lender that focuses on variable rate first lien debt to middle market companies primarily in the U.S.Basically, that means it's a commercial lender that specializes in financing businesses with variable rate loans. This is one market that benefitted from the rising rate environment of last year.In early February it delivered its Q4 results (FYQ1 for the company) and they showed just that. Earnings beat and revenue also beat by nearly 10%. Revenue was up 56% year-over-year.This year, rates aren't looking to move that much, but that means there may be more opportunity to find new customers as they look to finance new projects before rates head up again.Its 8.7% dividend makes it a great choice for passive income, even if you don't get a lot of stock growth. Mastercard (MA)Mastercard Inc (NYSE:MA) is one of the most recognizable names in the credit card industry. But that isn't where MA is making a name for itself today. Now it's about fintech, financial technology both on the back-end with its financial partners and on the front end, growing its brand across new markets and customers.MA has certainly established itself as a major credit card brand. But its move into debit cards and e-commerce is really where the growth is in the U.S. market and beyond.Some of this is apparent in its Q4 numbers. Quarterly profits were up 33% year-over-year. And considering the fact that consumer spending was actually down in 2018 compared to Q4 17, that is an impressive number.MA said in its quarterly call that it expects revenue growth in the 'mid-teens' to continue through 2021. Much of that growth is happening outside the U.S., which is where MA has a significant brand presence. It's starting to pay off.While MA does deliver a 0.6% dividend, just reinvest those dividends and go for the growth here. Kinsale Capital (KNSL)Kinsale Capital Group Inc (NASDAQ:KNSL) is an insurance provider that specializes in excess and surplus (E&S) lines of insurance.Simply put, E&S insurers provide policy coverage for homes and businesses that need coverage beyond typical property and casualty (P&C) policies. For example, E&S fills the gap for challenging and high-risk properties and business that don't fit traditional actuarial models like mobile homes, day care centers and even properties a large as refineries.Wherever this increased risk that can't be covered by a broad P&C policy is where E&S comes in. And this is all KNSL focuses on, specifically small- to mid-sized accounts. That gives them a niche that many big insurers don't spend too much time trying to woo.The dividend is just 0.53% but it's a solid grower -- up 23.39% in the past 12 months -- and is a good long-term play in a growing sector.Louis Navellier is a renowned growth investor.
