There are so many nervous Nellies here. Every time this stock goes down because some clown says that the FED is going to stop buying sometime in the distant future, they shout the sky is falling. If you are living that hand to mouth, you should not be in the market. You should just put your money under the mattress and sit on it all day so nobody can get it.
Thank you dlink for thinking rationally and clearly. AGNC is still regarded as having the best REIT management team. I bought at 33 and at 32 but I have no worries. Even if it goes down to 28 I will break even with the Divy's within a year and I am planning on holding onto AGNC at least through 2015. I'd like to make a fortune within a year instead of breaking even - but I know that constantly trading to try and get rich will only put you in the poorhouse. 75% of Day Traders lose money. Fortune favors the patient long-term Investor.
if people really believe fed done buying they should buy agnc with both fists. would mean mkt moves back to normal and spreads can move back to normal. can be some pain short term on dislocations, but ultimately would be good for ongoing dividend potential
