Company Profile

WMC Company Profile

Exchange: NYSE
Sector: Financial

Western Asset Mortgage Capital Corporation focuses on investing in, financing and managing primarily residential mortgage-backed securities. WMC is a REIT that is required to pay out most of its earnings in dividends. WMC is largely affected by the U.S. economic environment and residential real estate fundamentals. WMC uses leverage, comprised of borrowings under repurchase agreements, to accomplish higher returns. As a result, the aggregate debt-to-equity ratio of WMC as of March 31, 2014 is 7.4 to 1, which is a large potential risk for dividend investors. However, due to the leverage, WMC offers very high dividend yields. WMC has been paying dividends since 2012, and has increased them annually.
