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 over the past six months. Nonetheless, the trend in estimate revisions indicates a favorable outlook for 2018 and 2019 earnings of the company. Notably, it is making efforts to reposition its portfolio to offset risks related to interest rates and prepayment uncertainty.  In line with this, it remains focused to increase investments in mortgage backed securities (MBS) and improve its hedge portfolio. This will also support its performance in the long term. Going forward, a strong capital position and access to a diverse funding base are expected to provide significant financial flexibility to AGNC Investment." (9/24/2018)
  • 2. 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)
