|About: Ellington Financial LLC (EFC)|By:, SA News Editor

Ellington's (EFC) estimated fully diluted book value per share of $23.86 on Nov. 30 appears to be off from $24.57 at the end of October, but it includes the $0.77 dividend. Adding that back in shows book value actually grew a hair during November.

Today's close of $22.61 puts the stock at a 5.2% discount to book and - annualized - the $0.77 quarterly payout is a yield of 13.6%.
