Free cash flow, which had been positive for several years, swung into the negative column in 2021 in a big way – from $77 million in 2020 to -$204 million in 2021. However, in 2022, free cash flow is forecast to boom.

Are You A Short-Term Or A Long-Term Trader?

The REIT seems to alternate between growth and decline. That’s not good, and Safety Net penalizes companies with negative growth. It’s a sign that the dividend may be unsustainable in the future.
No Worries About The Dividend Of This 8.3% Yielder
I’ve covered Arbor Realty Trust in the past two years. In 2020, I said shareholders didn’t have much to worry about when it came to their dividend. In 2021, I called the dividend “even safer.” Now that it's 2022, where does the dividend stand?
