REPUBLICANS CAUSED EVERY RECESSION IN PAST 75 YEARS.....
DEMOCRATS HAVE REPAIRED YOUR DAMAGE. yet you teagaggerz come here to post ridiculous revisionist history=LIES !!
noticed that it is still lower than it was 5 years ago. Over the same period the S&P 500 is up 72%.
However if you bought AGNC 5 years ago and reinvested your dividends you would be up by more than 72%. That said I don't think most people owned this stock 5 years ago. Back then REITs still had a bad rep because so many went bankrupt after the crash and thus most were staying clear of them.
But I guess that is water under the bridge. What matters more is what will happen to interest rates in the future. And my guess since the economy is still looking pretty #$%$ they will keep them low even while entering the next recession which somehow will get blamed on Republicans.
What we have is a bar bell economy which means that we have lost most of our middle class manufacturing jobs to China. Having the Fed stimulate the economy only creates more of the same meaning more bar bell which is not what the Democrats say they want. Yet they have implemented no policies to correct the unfair trade practices created by currency manipulation by our trade partners which is what is needed to bring these middle class jobs back to the US. So what they say they want is not what their policies bring about. Yet the Republicans are the ones who want to fix the currency manipulation situation.
I have to believe that this issue has alluded the common man and thus it has become easy to get them to believe that inaction is the solution because they are not even aware that we aren't doing anything. This is because they do not understand that there is something that we should be doing. The rich are not suffering. The middle class are. Republicans will get blamed of course. But that is only because they can use slogans that resonate with past perceptions and ignore that what is needed today isn't getting done. Do the Democrats even understand the problem? How can you solve a problem you do not even know exist?
Yep, AGNC performing brilliantly again today. Market way up, AGNC...not so much.
LOL at Gary Kain, world-famous mREIT destroyer!!!!
Sentiment: Strong Sell
I'll try to use small words. You are an idiot. Try including some facts and not just verbal spooge to your argument or better yet just keep your mouth shut and let knowledgeable people speak.
Whatever, there was a positive job report which coincided with the dip in AGNC. AGNC is highly sensitive to interest rates. With them only trending downwards right now, that all remains positive for AGNC as it boosts BV and lowers repo costs. Their move to more 30yrs vs. 15yrs also helps. Stock is already trading at a more than 10% discount to BV vs. the usual 5%. With BV going up even more, the stock should follow.
Right_back_at_you.. i see your strong sell rating.. I hope you are not short the stock.. Gary can build value over time by repurchasing shares at a discount, trading... Capital raises above book, etc. It's not so simple as the absolute value of rates goes up so therefore AGNC's book value must go down. OK. Over time.. the trading Gary does builds up the NAV valuation. OK. So you can't just say.. if we go back to 3% on a 10 year bond or something like that... that NAV will be the 2013 Q4 value... because it won't. You have to realize this is a hedge fund.. And you guys can bash Gary Kain all you want.. but the man is a genius. He has paid out over $28 of dividends in the past 5 or 6 years.. and our IPO price was.. $15 I believe? or was it $20? either way ... Gary has built and continues to build value for the company despite the absolute level of rates.
Oh right, I forgot.. my email address changed recently.. I used to go by Instantwinbutton on yahoo boards. But you can look me up on seeking alpha under "William Packer" AGNC stock talks (as well as other Mreit names)
mmichaelr, I don't follow this message board much. See my prior posts. I also don't post often on yahoo boards... You have to look me up on seeking alpha. Name is William Packer. See stock talks.
Hatedahft, You have to look at my seeking alpha posts as well... I don't post on yahoo much anymore. I go by the data and trend... Rates are going to keep dropping.
I don't feel like arguing with you. Add me to facebook if you want me to prove you wrong. I have pictures and documents uploaded that go into detail of my financial positions.

Did you by chance do any of the Native Indian voices on the cartoon "Go Go Gofers"?
Your post here sounds a lot like how they used to talk.
