Just providing an alternate opinion here. No stock message board should be 100% full of rah-rah-this-stock-is-the-greatest, I don't think anyone benefits from that. Hey, the market's full of people like you and me: some people sell, some people buy. Good luck to everyone on NLY. Just because I sold doesnt mean I sit here rooting for it to plunge, or even believe it will do so. In fact I will keep my eye on NLY. There are some stocks I have bought and sold as many as four times, NLY is a prime candidate with that rich dividend. Good luck all.
