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, "Shares of AGNC Investment have underperformed its industry in the past three months. Further, the trend in estimate revisions of 2019 earnings does not indicate a favorable outlook for the company. Notably, the company is making efforts to reposition its portfolio to offset risks related to interest rates and prepayment uncertainty. In line with this, it is increasing investments in mortgage backed securities (MBS) and improve its hedge portfolio. Going forward, a strong capital position and access to a diverse funding base are expected to provide significant financial flexibility to AGNC Investment. However, as the company prioritizes risk management over incremental profits, robust returns might remain elusive in the short run. In addition, flattening yield curve and challenging global economic environment remain headwinds for the company." (3/19/2019) 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "AGNC reported a 4Q18 comprehensive loss of ($0.90) per share, versus its 4Q18 dividend of $0.54.
