An AGNC divvy < $1.40 will surprise many! IMO divvy won't be > $1.40, steady every quarter unless some unusual circumstances dictate.
This quarter taking longer than the last 2 quarters to declare ex-divvy date and amount. The ex-date was anticipated to be 9/21 (went ex 3/21 and 6/21). Will not be surprised - if ex-divvy 9/28, just like last year.
When divvy announced soon, best if no sell on the news; money on the sidelines may not move AGNC higher >29.75+. Too much politics to affect mREIT taking a hit.
I was hoping we would have an EX date around the 20th. That way we could bail before the Benanke 20-21st summit where the great unveiling takes place.....watch the market on the 19th ahead of this mtg. Should be something...Your gov't at work for you ;-)
