UPDATE: Deutsche Bank Reiterates Hold Rating, Raises PT on American Capital Agency
In a report published Monday, Deutsche Bank reiterated its Hold rating on American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC), and raised its price target from $34.25 to $35.75.
Deutsche Bank noted, “Expect dividend cut in 1Q; Maintain Hold - AGNC reported mixed 3Q results, as earnings missed our estimate but BV was up 10%. We believe AGNC's portfolio is attractive, as the majority of the assets are less sensitive to prepays. Additionally, the valuation is attractive with shares trading roughly in line with 9/30 BV. However, with comparable companies trading at discounts to BV and given our expectation of a dividend cut in 1Q13, we are maintaining our Hold rating. We are increasing our target to $35.75 per share.”
American Capital Agency closed on Friday at $32.43.
