    HTS stock value, If I see it right lower interest rates reduce the spread and hence the profits right / wrong?

    • Yes, and mortgage rates have been dropping for several weeks now. I think that, along witht the fact that this sector got very pricey and will be dead money for at least another six weeks until we get closer to the next div announcement are all putting pressure on these stocks.

      Look at the charts generally speaking they all move up and down together pretty much in tandem, reik/reik may be making some $$ off the arbitrage plays, but for smaller investors, it is not worth the expense of selling one to move to another. must be willing to trade 2500 shares or more daily and accept maybe 12 or 15 cents to make perhaps $350 and sometimes even those plays don't pan out.

      She like MFA so much but right now even ANH which is a stody M-reit is doing better than MFA.....never got into MFA as yield is so shitty I would not want to be stuck with it.

      • IMO it's not worth trading this stock. Most people & institutions that hold it are long termers seeking high yield. Ben Stein touts it & it's one of the few stocks he owns (other than basic ETFs like SPY, QQQQ & EMF.) Could lower interest rates impact their return & your yield? Sure! But if they go from a 15% to a 10% yield is that a good reason to sell? Their business is rock solid & well managed.
