now it is down a lot. but I am not worried. as I just keep it as my retirement, been counting it. if it keeps paying dividends,and I buy more every q with the money I received.so I will be very rich in 10 yrs.
At age 65, I am invested for income. My goal to live off Social plus investment income (not sales of principal) So I don't trade much, but do buy and sell some. I sold AGNC at 34. Bought back and new basis about 28.I also own some preferred and notes. Sure they may decline as interest rates go up. But returning 8-10% on those all bought under par. examples GKM, GST-PA, XKE, NRF-PB. NLY-PD. With recent declines some of these on sale if you are long term
