AGNC is but one stock among many. 5,000 plus or so. don't even think about the OTC market. way too many posters ignore that to their detriment.
from my last purchase i am up 35 cents per share. others are down up to, what, 5 bucks? today's yield and price bear little resemblance to a year ago. absolutely everything that can be measured is different.
i have been here less long than doc, YBF, and a lot of others. they know more than i do, and i know more than a lot of the truly short timers. yammering without the context of history is just yammering.
mrwizard !!! I could not reply to your post,not sure you will see this. My use of the work "POP" was poorly chosen. I expect a market correction in near future and some SPO and wanted some cash available to take advantage of them. And MBFITW is a wise guy .
that's nice. what will pop? or is it just a nebulous something?
having a lot of cash is almost as bad as being fully invested. all that cash, burning a hole in your pocket. a bigger hole every day, until, because you can't stand it any more, you do something 10 seconds before your pop happens.
