    Last month

    In May, this was a 32-33 dollar stock. On the hint of future interest rate hikes, this thing drops 10 dollars? The hikes are not even in effect yet. This thing is waaaay oversold. Even if rates do go up in 2014 or 2015 as suggested, it is not equal to a 10 dollar a share drop. Uptick in stock price plus dividends will more than cover temporary losses. Since there is no hike yet, AGNC is still making money on the same spread and has lowered the dividend payouts. The next earnings should be higher than the last qtr.

    • There is no 'hinting', long yields have already rose....where do you ppl come from? Last I checked 10 Y Treasuries rose from 1.5% to present 2.5%. So I dunno where this 'hinting' is coming from.

      If you are referring to 'hinting' of the Fed tapering, then you can expect rates to rise even faster. You think losing $10 is now 'oversold', wait until this thing goes to single digits (that is what I am predicting). This thing began as a single digit stock to become an overpriced mREIT, so it has further to fall to return to its norm.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • Here's a good one for you regarding REITS if you think no one knows what they're doing. Looks pretty bullish to me when you look at TWO insider trading. Look at the acquisition price and also the purchase price of their directors on the insider trading. That says it all. These markets are rigged with negative chatter so the insiders can buy more and make a ton of money. I would follow them; they are inside and know way more than we do. You know these will get back to the price they at least paid, whether it's legitimate or not. Do what the big boys are doing but at a lesser price.

      BUMP!

    • I am Dr. Klumps and i agree with your message

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • From 33 to 23, 10 dollar loss is 30% down from 33, not bad, since these guys are leveraged 8 to 1 and 3.5's Fannies 30 yr. dropped 4.71% times the leverage of 8 equals 37.68%. So the pro's who took this down are estimating they offset 7.68% of the MBS loss with hedging. Not oversold at all. The 101 price on the 3.5's-30's, is not the convincing, this could sell off either tomorrow or after all the government talk dies down. What worries me is the selling in the bond funds, lots of liquidation of bond funds and money is getting parked in 2 yrs or less treasuries. Seems like the rotation to the short end has started and these trends take months and years, in fact there is talk that the 25 year bull market in Treasuries has end. Hence, this is the first wave up and many more to come, not for 1 year, but for 10-20 years. Remember this is cycles and the pros in MBS watch the long term trends. QE is being tapered around the world, because governments need the tax revenue from the escalating amount of interest income. REMEMBER, INTEREST INCOME IS TAXED 100% AT REGULAR RATES, IT IS A WIN-WIN FOR INVESTORS AND GOVERNMENT. Investors who were getting 1% now will be getting 5%, those in higher risk yield like UTE's that were getting 4% will be getting 8-10%. You make more you pay more. It has already started for Student Loans, the rate doubles right after Fourth of July. The governments are Quantitatively Raising Interest Rates, Bernanke already let the news out couple weeks ago along with China's Central Bank.
