Hey guys, I know I have been away from the board for a few days and I apologize. I have a hypothesis (I might be right or wrong) that AGNC will announce their dividend anywhere between March 13-15, 2013. This is just my guess, do any of you have any suggestions or similar guess-timates for the dividend declaration date?
My current positions are:
900 MTGE $25 March13 Calls / cost 1.05 each
616 LINE $35 July13 Calls / cost 2.50 each
200 AGNC $31 April13 Calls / cost 0.99
60 AGNC $31 March13 Calls / cost 0.95
In scanning the data on the AGNC web site for all quarters over the last few years, it is generally within 3 or 4 days before or after the 15th, but has varied in special circumstances. My guess is ex date is before the 16th.
