5 Hold-Rated Dividend Stocks: SPH, NSH, RNO, DX, MTR

Dynex Capital

Dividend Yield: 14.40%

Dynex Capital (NYSE: DX) shares currently have a dividend yield of 14.40%.

Dynex Capital, Inc., a mortgage real estate investment trust (REIT), invests in mortgage assets in the United States. The company has a P/E ratio of 5.18.

The average volume for Dynex Capital has been 498,600 shares per day over the past 30 days. Dynex Capital has a market cap of $443.1 million and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are down 15.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Dynex Capital as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, notable return on equity and attractive valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock has had a generally disappointing performance in the past year.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • DX's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 10.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 20.6%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) industry and the overall market, DYNEX CAPITAL INC's return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for DYNEX CAPITAL INC is currently very high, coming in at 89.46%. Regardless of DX's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, DX's net profit margin of 87.53% significantly outperformed against the industry.
  • DYNEX CAPITAL INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. However, we anticipate underperformance relative to this pattern in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, DYNEX CAPITAL INC increased its bottom line by earning $1.36 versus $1.05 in the prior year. For the next year, the market is expecting a contraction of 12.5% in earnings ($1.19 versus $1.36).
  • DX has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 23.81% from its price level of one year ago. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
