Ready Capital: Headwinds From Rising Interest Rates

Ready Capital's short term performance is likely to be stressed amid rising interest rates. The company has a higher than average dividend yield, but distribution growth is extremely volatile. The annual EPS growth for 2022 is expected to remain flat amid quantitative tightening and economic rebound. I am neutral on the stock because even though it is a good income generator, the non-existent dividend growth history fails to shield investors against inflationary pressures.

Trade Orchid Island Capital For Ready Capital To Realize Future Growth And Income

Orchid Island Capital is losing book value, suffering from margin compression, and recently cut the dividend to reduce expenses. The outlook for ORC is not optimistic given the triple threat posed by the Fed of higher rates, easing bond purchases, and an expected reduction in assets. A better option might be Ready Capital, with a 10.8% yield and a stronger financial position going into 2022.
