    Unsustainable Dividend?

    This analyst thinks the divy is sustainable and may actually be increased:

    "Nomura Securities Expects Sustainable Dividend From American Capital Agency (AGNC); The One and Only
    10:35 AM ET, 07/18/2012 - Street Insider

    Nomura Securities maintains a 'Buy' on American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC) price target of $33.00.

    Analyst, Bill Carcache, said, "AGNC pre-announced 2Q12 earnings and select metrics after the market close on Tuesday. Overall, the company s performance this quarter was solid. AGNC continued its long streak of consecutive book value growth (albeit at a slower rate vs. previous quarters) and generated taxable income of $1.60, well in excess of its $1.25 dividend."

    "AGNC is the only stock under our coverage that we believe is well positioned to also deliver positive absolute returns under highly stressed macro conditions. By the same token, we also see AGNC as outperforming in a more benign environment where the global economy continues to trudge along at modest positive growth; under this scenario, we d expect AGNC s dividend to likely increase above the current $1.25 level."
