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