Today's Technical View on Annaly Capital, Chimera Investment, MFA Financial, and Redwood Trust

LONDON, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Federal Reserve last year implemented a third round of quantitative easing. Under QE3, the Fed is buying $40 billion in mortgage backed securities every month. The Fed plans to continue with its aggressive bond buying program until there is a sustained recovery in the labor market. QE3 has helped in bringing down mortgage rates to record low levels and while this is good for the economy, it is having a negative impact on mortgage REITs such as Annaly Capital Management Inc. (NYSE: NLY), Chimera Investment Corporation (NYSE: CIM), MFA Financial Inc. (NYSE: MFA) and Redwood Trust Inc. (NYSE: RWT). On Monday, shares of all four REITs ended in green territory, tracking gains in the broad market.
