    Dividend

    The smaller the spread between what they can borrow at (1-2%) and the current Refi rate (3-4%), the less money they make. If that spread narrows - which it has been since the Fed announced no rise in interest rates for two more years - they don't make as much money. Ergo, less dividends.
