Ellington’s (EFC) CEO Laurence Penn said, “the Board increased our monthly dividend to $0.14, as we continue to see strong growth in our business, driven by a larger flow of high yielding loans from our origination programs.” Penn further added that the “positive trends in our business, combined with the dry powder we have to continue to expand the portfolio, give us confidence that we will be able to increase our dividend further from here.” (See Ellington Financial stock analysis on TipRanks) The company’s annual dividend of $1.68 per share now reflects a dividend yield of 10.3%.
