I wonder if NRO is buying shares at-present or if they are in a hold mode due to the merger.
I sure hope they are buying, as prices seem to be bottoming - JMHO. Of course, not having funding, or higher-rate funding maybe a hindrance. Still, with the advantageous rate spread, I would hope they're adding selectively (OHI and GRT, for example)
Any chance the merger goes through sooner, rather than later? Will they wait for the March dividend to be paid? (I suppose I could call IR and they could provide answer - maybe someone already asked).
