    Seems like this works

    I have been long AGNC for a year and a half and have done well with it. I have only added to my position once and that was after a spo. I didn't even really understand what it was at the time but I liked the stock so I added more to my position. My thought is anytime there is a spo accumulate shares. Anytime the stock is off 5-7% accumulate shares and in the long run you should really do well unless they start raising rates. There are a lot of people trading options which seems intriguing I just no nothing about it. Any thoughts on my by and hold strategy? Or would I potentially make a lot more doing it another way?

    • The most likely way to make more money than what you have been/are doing is with trading options on AGNC. Options give you more leverage (usually 4:1 or more) vs. straight stock trading (or holding for the dividends) --- that's why Doc, myself and others have been posting the results of our options trades, so that others can see how they can improve their trading results.

      However, BEFORE attempting to trade options, read all the info posted on this BB and elsewhere about options, so that you understand what you are doing and the risks involved.

      Good luck!
