I completely disagree with the below article:
Sold most of my AGNC and bought IVR today. Still think AGNC is pretty good, but feel that IVR is due for a dividend run.
IVR has $.80 dividend and the ex-dividend date is 9/15/2011 (record date of 9/19/2011).
EE, don't worry about everyone's smart alec comments.
It's impossible to time trades perfectly, as long as you make a profit... That's all that matters.
I traded AGNC 3 times this quarter. First time, I bought at the bottom, sold way too early. Second time, I bought too soon and sold at the top. Third time, I bought close to the bottom and sold a little early.
1. .70 share profit
2. 2.32 share profit
3. 1.23 share profit
