In a report published Friday, Citigroup analyst Donald Fandetti reiterated a Neutral rating on Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT (NYSE: EARN), but lowered the price target from $20.00 to $17.00.

Book value was down 2.7% to $18.29 from $18.80. The Q4 dividend of $0.50 equates to an annualized yield of 12% on the current share price. We are keeping our 2014/2015 estimates unchanged and introduce 2016 of $2.20. We are lowering our price target to $17 on 0.9x book value to reflect lower comp valuations and potential for more volatile interest rate environment.”

Ellington Residential Mortgage REIT closed on Thursday at $16.50.
