ARMOUR Residential REIT, Inc. Message Board

    The 25 %

    Just a few short weeks ago, when ARR was zooming down to the 6.50's because of the skittishness of 75 % of everyone who invests in Stocks - someone bragged on the Message Board that he sold at 6.80. Folks, there's a reason only 25 % of Investors make money in the Market. They:
    1) Have a Plan and stick to it
    2) Think Long Term
    No matter what happens at the Fed Meeting later today - I will be holding on to ARR and AGNC.
    These are 2 of the strongest and best run REIT's. QE is not going to last forever and Interest Rates
    are going to be low at least to 2014.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Exactly. My first buy of AGNC was at $24 and change during the EU crisis on 2011. I picked up AGNC ($29), ARR ($6.65 DCA) and PSEC ($10.30) well below book value during the fiscal cliff fear season. Japan went through what we now see across the west. Interest rates and growth are going to be low for a very long time. These dividend payers have a massive tax incentive to pay investors 90% of taxable earnings. Hold cash in medium term bond mutual funds with no trade fee. Wait for a fearful environment. Move into cash and buy when opportunity (fear selling) shows itself. Buy these stocks. Move any remaining cash back into bond funds when the fear goes away. Repeat.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • "chuck37chuck" was my favorite football play, and "blue42blue42" was my next favorite call.
