Jefferies downgraded Western Asset Mortgage Capital (NYSE: WMC) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $22.00.

"Since WMC's IPO in May 2012, the stock has generated a total return of approximately 34%, which includes dividends and share price appreciation. With the shares trading over our price target and our outlook that rates are likely to increase over the next 12-months (pressuring Agency asset prices in the process), we are downgrading the shares to Hold," said analyst Daniel Furtado.
