Bought 10,000 shares 24.275 cost average. Will buy 10k more on dips below
The question remains.... How long will it take for the discount to book value to evaporate and the stock to return to its normal 1.15x to 1.25x book value range? I think that the demand for yield is so high that it will drive the premium on mtge back to its previous levels. 29 or 30 per share by May is not out of the question. The fiscal cliff is just a unfounded fear that will never be realized. Congress will pass an extension of the bush era tax cuts to all people for 2013. I believe they will also agree to raise the taxes on Americans for the years following 2013.
Thats just ridiculous and is just completely out of the question. we will be lucky to hold 20 with the cliff, irrational concern over dividend tax rate, and Bernanke determined to force a new real estate bubble despite the lessons from the last bubble pop. 29-30 by May? that is just insane.
It always astounds me that people who invest in this sector don't know that the dividends are not "qualified" dividends. Normal isn't for these things to trade between 115% and 125%. But BV will support this sector just fine as they continue to pay dividends way above uncle Ben's zero rates.
