Yeah - I've been in NLY a while and it's been a great performer. Of course, I'd be ticked off had I bought later, but the dividend in great and the strategy is working and will continue for 2 more years, at least.
When Cramer came rolling in, I had to laugh. He's an idiot, but promoting a stock spitting out 15% a year when banks pay .15% can't possibly be deemed a bad call, even if it was after the fact. He needs a few of these so that his followers keep thinking he knows what he's doing.
Actually, I shouldn't call him an idiot. He showed up on the ETrade home screen too and made me seriously consider changing brokerages. He seems to show up as the expert in a lot of places that are trying to attract the unwashed masses. He may not know poop about stocks or investing, but he's certainly not an idiot.
