I personally did not expect the entire ex-div run to take place in the first half-day of trading after the declaration, but perhaps I should set my expectations ridiculously higher, so that I can be VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTED too!
Appears lower highs for all mREIT...that includes AGNC.
Maximum high range to ex-divvy 29.10-29.50 IMO.
SPO feeling is around the corner after ex-divvy.
Seeking Alpha has article indicating when interest rates do rise in late 2012 or 2013, AGNC payout will be lower (implied stock price will be lower). Not an issue now, but something to think about down the road.
