NY Mtg Tr Inc/SH (NYMT) Earns “Buy” Rating from Maxim Group

Maxim Group reiterated their buy rating on shares of NY Mtg Tr Inc/SH (NASDAQ:NYMT) in a research report released on Tuesday morning. The firm currently has a $6.75 target price on the real estate investment trust’s stock.

“NYMT reported 3Q18 comprehensive income of $0.14, versus its dividend of $0.20, partly due to an intra-quarter common equity raise and lower average earning assets. Strong originations drove period-end earning assets up; combined with a solid 4Q18 pipeline and the new equity, this should position NYMT well for 4Q18 and 2019.”,” Maxim Group’s analyst wrote.
