Dividends4Life: 11% Yield And An Upgrade On Improving Fundamentals

11% Yield And An Upgrade On Improving Fundamentals

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, November 30, 2016 | | 0 comments »

The latest decline in this stock doesn't match with the fundamentals for dividends, so I'm able to bring out the buy rating. In previous coverage, I was on the fence because share prices were just a bit too high. The steeper yield curve is very positive for dividend sustainability, and I believe the $0.18 dividend looks very solid. This is a clear and easy call for me to make. This is a buy rating on the company.

An upgrade for American Capital Agency Corp. (NASDAQ:AGNC) is a little overdue. The company reported a great third quarter, and shares jumped too high for me to come out with a buy rating following the announcement. To be fair, they were climbing prior to the announcement coming out. When I previewed the announcement, shares were running $19.48, and I came out in the neutral camp. I correctly predicted what the company would report for the third quarter, and shares rallied past $20. Following up on the earnings release and subsequent call, I decided to stick with my neutral rating. The prices were just too high to upgrade, even though the portfolio met my expectations and beat analysts' expectations.
