Conclusion

While there are some reasons to be bullish on CIM, there are probably just as many reasons to avoid it. Some of the reasons to avoid CIM are

It sports rather weak current and quick ratios.

Over 50% of its portfolio is invested in non agency backed MBS, whereas most REITS focus on lower risk agency back paper.

A large portion of this portfolio is the red; the securities are trading below what they paid for them and this is probably why it's trading below book.

100K Invested for 5 years in CIM would have dropped down to 30K; a loss of 70K.

Long term investors would be better of investing in REITS such as NLY, AGNC, MFT, etc

Having said that it appears that Chimera is trying to put in a bottom and investors willing to take on extra risk could be rewarded in the near future.

As long as it does not close below 2.60 on a weekly basis the outlook will remain neutral.

Conclusion

The Feds have extended the low-interest holiday, and this should prove to be beneficial to REITS. With a proper hedging strategy in place REITS can perform well even in a rising rate environment. As the markets are extremely overbought it would make sense to wait for a pullback before committing large sums of money to this market.
