What are Wall Street analysts saying about AGNC Investment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AGNC Investment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "AGNC Investment delivered fourth-quarter 2018 net spread and dollar-roll income (excluding estimated catch-up premium amortization benefit) of 53 cents per share, which missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 61 cents. Results also reflect decline in net interest income (NII) and tangible net book value per share. Notably, the company’s net book value remains exposed to interest rate volatility and widening of Agency MBS spreads. Further, higher interest rates are escalating AGNC Investment’s funding costs. Also, as it prioritizes risk management over incremental profits, robust returns might remain elusive in the short run. Shares of the company have underperformed its industry in the past six months. Yet, a strong capital position and access to a diverse funding base are expected to provide significant financial flexibility to AGNC Investment." (2/8/2019)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "AGNC reported a 4Q18 comprehensive loss of ($0.90) per share, versus its 4Q18 dividend of $0.54. Therefore, tangible book value (TBV) per share was down 8.0%, to $16.56, notwithstanding $1B of common equity raised during 4Q18 at prices above TBV." (1/31/2019)
