What are analysts saying about Two Harbors Investments Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Two Harbors Investments Corp stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Two Harbors Investment Corp is a Real Estate Investment Trust that focuses on investing in, financing and managing residential mortgage-backed securities and mortgage loans. Its objective is to provide risk-adjusted returns to investors through dividends and capital appreciation. Two Harbors intends to acquire and manage a portfolio of mortgage-backed securities, focusing on security selection and the relative value of various sectors within the mortgage market. As an investment strategy, the company expects to deploy moderate borrowings through, with respect to Agency RMBS, short-term borrowings structured as repurchase agreements and, with respect to non-Agency RMBS and residential mortgage loans, private funding sources. It may also finance portions of its portfolio through non-recourse term borrowing facilities and equity financing under the Legacy Loan Program and Term Asset-Backed Securities Lending Facility (TALF), if such financing becomes available. " (10/11/2017)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "TWO announced that it is contributing its portfolio of commercial real estate loans to a new REIT (Granite Point Mortgage Trust) in conjunction with Granite Point’s IPO, and then distributing shares of Granite Point to TWO shareholders as a special dividend (after the expiration of a customary lock-up period)." (6/7/2017)
  • 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Two Harbors reported 4Q16 core EPS of $0.24, in line with Street and FBR estimates and ahead of the $0.23 quarterly dividend. GAAP EPS came in at $0.98, as higher interest rates in the quarter yielded material gains on the hedging portfolio and a write-up of the MSR, which were partially offset by a markdown on the MBS portfolio. Book value per share declined by 2.3% QOQ to $9.78, which reflected rate volatility and was slightly weaker than our estimated book value decline of 1.6%. We were encouraged by continued expansion of the CRE lending platform, an initiative that should support a stronger multiple over time, as well as the growth in the MSR portfolio that should act as a hedge against an increase in rates. With a dividend we believe secure and clear progress toward diversifying the business, we see upside potential over the long term but maintain a more balanced view until further progress is made."
