2.8 X of the normal volume in one day for a REIT, means a SCREAMING BUY!!! Please only for serious investors, kids who have access to a computer (calling yourself trader...) for your own good stay away...
Of course its a screaming buy. The caps poster with multiple aliases will tell you how terrible ARR is. He is an idiot. He would have you sell at a volume sell off(Th and Fri) and buy at a later top. These are the buy high sell low folks, who try to influence the weak hands to sell more and for what purpose? There is always a purpose, remember that.
In my GLAD/3% model, the 'Buy" indicator for ARR is EX date + 2 trading days, as I have posted here and on the AGNC MB, these past few weeks. That would have placed your "Buy" order last Friday, at EX + 2 days. The "SELL" date is April 8th, on the close, which is EX + 17. These are historical markers, providing a 90% win average over the past 27 months since monthly dividend payments have been given. EX + 17 would have gotten you out @ 6.75 last Monday(11th).
Your new "Buy" order which should be placed this moment as a limit order for Monday is for 6.18(this is 3% below Friday's close following GLAD/3%). On each day's close subtract 3% and enter as your new limit order for the next day accumulating your monthly allotment of shares. I am expecting a possible fill on Monday, off the lows, and perhaps one more fill before April 8th, which is the date to sell on the close.
