What are Wall Street analysts saying about AGNC Investment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AGNC Investment stock:
  • 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "The comprehensive loss (driven by unrealized losses on Agency RMBS caused by spread-widening) reduced tangible book value (TBV) by 5.4%. We lower our price target to $19.25, from $21.25, due to the lower TBV. Our new price target equates to 1.0x tangible book value, which is toward the high end of the range of peers. Though our new price target has limited upside, our Buy rating is based on AGNC’s 11.4% dividend yield, which we regard as very attractive. In addition, management remains bullish on leveraged investment opportunities, due to wider spreads and lower funding costs, and we agree. Therefore, we see good support for the dividend, and a more stable tangible book value." (4/26/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of AGNC Investment have outperformed the industry it belongs to, in the past three months. Moreover, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-year earnings remained unchanged in a month’s time. Notably, the company is making reasonable efforts to restructure its portfolio to hedge interest rate and prepayment uncertainty. The company’s efficient cost structure also augurs well. Further, a strong capital position and access to a diverse funding base render significant financial flexibility to the company. However, as the company prioritizes risk management over incremental returns, robust returns might remain elusive in the short run." (4/25/2018)
