  • 7/5/2017 – Annaly Capital Management was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating. According to Zacks, “Shares of Annaly outperformed the Zacks categorized REIT Mortgage Trust industry, over the past three months. Notably, the company reported better-than-expected first-quarter 2017 adjusted core earnings per share. The quarter witnessed growth in book value. Moving ahead, the company’s prudent selection of assets, diversified investment, and financing options, as well as exposure to high-quality MBS is expected to support its bottom-line growth. However, the company has to compete with other financial institutions, institutional investors, lenders, government bodies and mortgage REITs to acquire assets in target markets, which adversely affect the pricing of securities. Also, adverse macro-economic conditions and a rise in rate of interest may add to the company’s woes.”
