Guy's, if you look at the historical prices, you will see that ANH moves in a very narrow range. I bought this stock for safety and diversification. Just not putting all my eggs in one basket, so to speak. This stock is for dividends and not capital appreciation. It was started in 3/12/98. It's one of the "older" Reit's and IMHO a very safe stock. If you're looking for more "action" try AGNC, NLY or TWO.
