Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ellington Financial LLC stock:

  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "Ellington Financial reported 4Q16 EPS of $0.05, missing Street expectations for $0.22 and our estimate of $0.32. Similar to past quarters, the miss was driven by hedging losses as high-yield corporate credit spreads continued to tighten in the quarter. As a result of their negative impact on earnings, the company is exiting the hedge position and has already started selling it down. Excluding hedging losses, the company’s consumer credit and agency portfolios both performed well as yields held in and balances grew. During the quarter, the company’s book value fell to $19.46 from $19.83, a 2% drop, and the company lowered its $0.50 quarterly dividend per share to $0.45. Following a challenging year for Ellington given unfavorable market dynamics, we believe the portfolio migration toward core strategies is a good start and expect more progress in FY17 and beyond. As such, we reiterate our Outperform rating but lower our price target to $17.50 from $18.00." (2/24/2017)
