Predictions are nice if not always right.
Next time though, it might be better if you didn't headline your thread with one.
Many here await, with bated breath, the real dividend announcement.
Threads like this one sometimes draw the ire of the collective board.
Since last December, the declaration dates are as follows:
I can see where one may have made the assumption that AGNC might have declared today.
In the past, AGNC has made announcements after hours, but I am not sure if a dividend declaration was amoung any of them.
AGNC has not declared its dividend on or after the 17th since 12/17/10, going on 2yrs,
not on the 18th for 1yr. before that(12/18/09).
Before that, all of the previous dividend declarations were on or AFTER the 19th.
The latest dividend announcement of a 4th quarter payment was the 19th(2008).
AGNC's 4th quarter ex-dates were all before that year's end:
I think AGNC declares on Monday, the 17th of December, in the 2012 year of our Lord.
You must be very disappointed, with no announcement today. It looks like AGNC is going back to it's typical December announcement date of 17-19 Dec. Last year (announced on the Dec. 12th, was either an attempt to stimulate the economy with an early dividend OR an expectation by management that they might get another SPO done before year-end. Take your pick, but were back to announcing next week.
