I bought AGNC two and half years ago and I still have it. In a few days, I will receive my 9th dividend. Sometimes I let the dividend go back in for more stock, and sometimes I need to spend it around taxes, Christmas, etc. There have been ups and downs, but it all comes out right in the end. I still think it will go to 30-31 after this next earnings report and dividend. As long as interest is down, you cannot go wrong with AGNC and its 21% dividend.
I'm with you Curly. I bought at the bottom of the crash, it sure is nice having a $10k divi every quarter to do whatever I like with. I could care less what the price per share does as long as it doesn't drop below $20 or the divi drop below 5%. Just the income from the divi thus far would make it very hard to lose at this point.
