TheStreet Ratings team rates STARWOOD PROPERTY TRUST INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate STARWOOD PROPERTY TRUST INC (STWD) a BUY. This is driven by multiple strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity."
