The great investment theologian Bill Gross said not to expect as much from Wall Street in the foreseeable future. MREIT will have the best return available . I expect my Preferred Securities to be one of the few investments that will hold distribution rate.
The 18% that NTI pays is even scarier but the first distribution of $1.26 showed up in my Scottrade account yesterday.I can take that to the bank. These guys at AGNC know how to print money and will continue to do so until the fed raises rates.
Click on the chart to the right. Click on interactive charts. Click on events: dividends. Change the chart scale to 5 years and yoc can see exactly how the stock has performed and the dividends it has paid.
REITs really do pay high dividends and should continue to do so until the Fed raises short-term rates.
We will know in a few weeks.
Seems to me a bit strange that they would have an SPO before the ex date, Usually they do it just after.
In any case, the sale is almost over, so things should return to normal in a few day.
Net interest margins (core income) plus drop income is 1.18 as of q4. Doesn't cover 1.25 completely but over $2 of undistributed income still available to tap into. So yes 1.25 is going to be q1 dividend.
