Earnings Scheduled For March 7, 2014

Jefferies initiates its coverage on Western Asset Mortgage Capital (NYSE: WMC) with a Buy rating and a price target of $21.

Since investors are paying for the management of securities via a management fee and/or G&A expenses, we'd prefer investors own the REIT that is actively managed as opposed to the “buy and hold” strategy."
