crooksallover they will not cut the dividend that much but it could be a buck before long and that is why the price of the stock is down. If they keep it at 1.25 which I think they will do for at least another quarter I expect the stock to recover some of the lost ground before the next x date I can see 30 bucks before that x date but I didn't think it would be where it is now. If you holding for LT income then the share price is not as important as dividends. I have been in AGNC long enough that my dividens have more than made up for the stock price retreat. The stronger the eco news is and the higher the stock market goes up the more the chances are that the Fed will change it policies on interest. That is why I feel that the stock price has went down as the future seems to improving better than expected. Maybe some more political #$%$ out of our two bought and paid parties will screw everything up and the eco will crash but I hope that does not happen.
Better eco means higher interest higher interest rate means less a return for AGNC and less dividend and lower share price. IMHO
that is incorrect. it is determined each and every quarter by board vote. similar votes determine when to announce and what the record date is.
most companies DO try to maintain some consistency, but in this case, another really bad quarter will require a hack job next time.
