Think about it, if AGNC board intends to keep the $1.25 dividend, why not announce that at the same time as the SPO? It would certainly make the SPO much more acceptable to the market. Again, just my opinion.
It will be $1.25, GK practically promised that during the 4q12 ER conference call. Of course until it's officially declared by the board it's not officially declared, but listen to GK and you'll feel more comfortable expecting $1.25.
Tay, I was probably one of the biggest believers in the dividend getting cut. But from what GK indicated, I think I'd now be legitimately ticked if they did cut it! :o) I'm in for 2K at 31.49 basis. GL
