    HTS pays $0.80 Ex-Dividend Date 09/26/12. Now that AGNC is x-div, catch another wave of cash!

    Collect $$$ off Hatteras, then buy back into AGNC.

    Sentiment: Hold

    • This is bad cause you're chasing a gain. From a technical stand point it is ok at best. They just covered the gap so who knows what will happen from here. This is free reign for the stock to literally drop with no bottom, Technically speaking of course. I mean if you wanted to only look at the positives it is ok, but extremely risky. I wouldn't suggest anyone get into this with out doing some major research, and find out and explain exactly why the stock dropped and come up with a reasonable argument as to why it won't fall more.

      I, for one, will not be buying this.

      • Very true. It ran up a quick 50 cents today (50 cents of an 80 cent run?), and although it may have a bit more to go, it could easily fall back - with very few days to recover if it moves against you. I did pick up a few Oct 29 calls for .10 yesterday, and quickly got out at .20 and .25 today. May have left some money on the table, but I don't know/trust HTS enough to hold into next week. Doing the same with a small NLY call (some Oct 17s @ .30) position.

      • Same with me.. i would not buy HTS either.
        I used to own it, but bailed out of it when they cut their dividend from 1.20 to 1.10.

        Your pretty much getting the same return as NLY.. both are bottom of the barrel returns for the past few years.

    • need to recapture the drop first.
