    0n 8/15/2011 NLY had the highest closing priceof the year of $18.35. Since then we collected $2.27 in Dividends. The price dropped by $1.33 so the net was 0.94 or about 5%.Comments?

    • Now u got it! At least someone knows whats going on. For all you fools woh try to trade this stock ur gonna get burned!!. Add on dips and collect the divs. You measure your profit in total income. capital gains + divs. and dats how you do it!

    • jonkai: my apology to you. I realized too late, that your message was not a response to mine. You usually have good postings. Carry on !

    • your assumptions are not quite all there....

      did you buy at that price last year? or even close?
      where is the Opportunity profit or loss? what happened to the dividends? did you buy more NLY? put it in CDs? where are the reinvested dividends? what if the person put the dividends in GE or Ford or ? instead?

      why are you saying the person "dropped" $1.33? they did not sell today? so what meaning is there in $1.33 when that will change tomorrow, and the day after and the day after every day for the rest of the next 100 years....

      for instance what if they held the stock until they died, and used the dividends to live a luxurious life? did he/she really care what the price of the stock was?

      so that 5% has meaning to exactly zero people, the $1.33 has meaning to exactly zero people. even the person who did sell or buy at $18.35, they used their proceeds in such away to gain more than 5% or less than 5%.... and they did not sell today.....

      long story short, your statement has no meaning.

      here is meaning:

      someone buying last year on 8/15/2011 has been able to collect about $2.27 in actual cash, (and more if they reinvested the dividends)... that is about 14% with dividend reinvestment on their money they have invested... which by the way, according to your assumption is the absolute lowest amount of yield you could have collected... so everyone who owned it in august of last year to today have collected a sizable amount of real honest to goodness cash that you can touch and do something with....

      what exactly were you going to do with the share price? frame it? sell it today so you can admire that cash instead making 0.01% in your broker account?

    • Buy at or below book. Add to your positions on dips.

      Then recalculate.
