Take a look at the action of DOW. It is exactly the same as AGNC. All everyone is talking about is how bad REITS are while other stocks such as chemicals have reacted similar. Take a look at all the coal stocks; same action. What about tech? Same action. The market is making a correction, not just the REITS. I was a buyer is 2009 and I'm a buyer today. Look at what happened to everyone that sold in 2009 only to see the market surpass all years with less than 3 years time. Panic selling creates opportunity to those who know better.
