    Why is everyone confused about B. sheet

    << Who is really watching the fox in the henhouse. I might be paranoid but after Enron AND Worldcom, do you think REIT accountants dont have as many tricks as the "regular" companies do. >>

    in fact they don't ..... why ?....because they gotta pay out most of the profits every quarter
    unlike ENE and others who could scam the system til the wheels came off the wagon .....

    << . I remember when worldcom was at 8 bucks and was giving off a 30% yield >>

    that was an illusionary moment in time ..... and i believe you refer to MCIT which is not the same animal and who quickly crashed to earth ...........

    look how long NLY has existed and how long its paid a quarterly dividend ........ its earnings are straightforward leveraged interest off pretty simple FNMA/FHLMC bonds and most of the yakking is on what they will take in profits in a quarter given virtually every bond in their 11bln portfolio is at a profit ............

    << FB is now paying over 16%. That is very scary >>

    why is that ?..... you must be a newbie here because in July , it was at $26 which was a 19+% yield ...........

    << I remember when worldcom was at 8 bucks and was giving off a 30% yield and yet it was being dumped like old trash by the hour! >>

    because MCIT in fact WAS a trash stock .......

    that you compare the illusionary dividend of a telcom stock to a mortgage REIT tells me you need to do a tad bit of homework ....
