i agree with you malagasysloth. this is a stock that bounces around in the +/- .50cent range. now that uncle ben has confirmed that bond buying will continue for the foreseeable future the spreads on a lot of REITS will suffer. i like my chances with NYMT as i do believe that this stock will maintain its current value at the very least. sure, there are people who will point out that the next SPO will knock the share price down, but as a company, if you don't grow (via SPOs) you will be left behind. waiting and looking towards my next dividend. just my opinion.
