Ares Commercial Real Estate has a diversified portfolio across asset classes and geographies. ACRE is one of the stocks in my portfolio. Right now, it is currently trending on the Bearish side. Some analysists have marked it for sell but I think it is a good time to buy. I would wait and see if the price drops a bit more but definitely worth buying and adding to your portfolio.
