I know a lot of people are still underwater with respect to their NAV price on NLY, but with today's dividend, I am no longer in that camp. I've been holding, buying on the dip and reinvesting all dividend payments for the past several years. I'ts good to finally see black numbers.
Hang in their longs
Therefore, you was in the positive yesterday without the dividend. Why didn't you sell then? Did you include income taxes in your break even calculation? This year, you will be able to claim a capital loss from your sale. Just think, you could have bought a CD.
