    REM is really cratering

    I understand that the dividend is going to be dropping but would think that REM would have more support given the still favorable yield. Really hope that our socialist gov't doesn't destroy the MBS business buy acquiring at artificially high prices.

      I tend to agree with the author of this article
      http://www.thestreet.com/story/11735343/1/mortgage-reits-acid-test-street-whispers.html?puc=yahoo&cm_ven=YAHOO
      I believe we have some profit taking going on, been a very good run. Seems the general opinion is that mreits are a pretty stable investment for the next few years until interest rates go up. It is October, typically not the best month. Anybody feel this might be a buying opportunity?

      Sentiment: Buy

    • $1.50 dividend for 2013 would still be acceptable compared to most alternative investments.
