Hey Doc - you're kidding right? How could someone get bored with your posts! I greatly appreciate them and have gleaned a lot from them. Keep'm coming!
My call is this: 1. AGNC reports record earnings at the next shareholder's meeting. The share price has been moving higher than historically. So others are suspecting the same.
2. They've been putting the money from the previous spo's to work in a perfect enviroment for their model. Maybe they even increase the dividend .05 to sweeten the pot and have more support for their request to increase shares.
3. Last quarter before the ex-div the stock closed at $30.65, well heck we're almost there now at $30.35 a full month before the divvy! So it only makes sense that if record earnings are announced with or without a higher divvy, the stock goes to a record high on the day before the next ex-dividend. At this momentum, I approximate $31.50 to $32. AGNC is well hedged and according the exec's it would take a 200 basis move to even begin affecting the bottom line. This is not happening anytime soon or overnight in my opinion.
all the best and always enjoy communicating with you. Roy
