Chimera Investment Corporation (NYSE: CIM) shares currently have a dividend yield of 10.80%.

Chimera Investment Corporation operates as a real estate investment trust (REIT) in the United States. The company has a P/E ratio of 25.54.

The average volume for Chimera Investment Corporation has been 9,146,500 shares per day over the past 30 days. Chimera Investment Corporation has a market cap of $3.4 billion and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 26.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Chimera Investment Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • CIM's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 10.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 10.3%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $109.58 million or 36.72% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, CHIMERA INVESTMENT CORP has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -63.29%.
  • The gross profit margin for CHIMERA INVESTMENT CORP is currently very high, coming in at 88.80%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 25.51% trails the industry average.
  • Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, regardless of the company's weak earnings results. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
