whats with the $6.80 div per share stated by yahoo?
Yahoo recently changed the way they calculate dividends to also include Special Dividends paid. NFI $5.60 regular + $1.20 Special paid in late December = $6.80 total dividends paid.
I believe the special declared in Dec 05 was $1.25. Strange why Jahoo added wrong. Seexxx.novastarmortgage.com/pdf-bin/earningshistory.pdf

That is very good news for NFI and other such REIT's.Not sure if the above link with the full article will open since it was sent to me as a private client of Legg's. It is very interesting in general for all fixed income investors.
