Leon Cooperman's Omega Advisors Starts Arbor Realty Trust (ABR) Position

Leon Cooperman's hedge fund firm Omega Advisors recently filed a 13G with the SEC regarding Arbor Realty Trust (ABR). Per the filing, trading on June 13th means that Omega Advisors now has a 5.2% ownership stake in ABR with 1,311,300 shares.

This is a brand new equity position for the firm as they did not show a stake at the end of the first quarter. For more from this manager, yesterday we posted up Cooperman's thoughts on equities at a recent hedge fund conference.

Per Google Finance, Arbor Realty Trust is "a specialized real estate finance company. The Company invests in a diversified portfolio of structured finance assets in the multi-family and commercial real estate markets. It invests primarily in real estate-related bridge and mezzanine loans, including junior participating interests in first mortgages, preferred and direct equity, and in limited cases, discounted mortgage notes and other real estate-related assets (collectively, structured finance investments)."
