I hear you - but we do have a quarterly coming next Monday. There may or may not be clues as to their dividend direction. I expect the Q to be 'very slightly better' than the prior quarter, with Q1 in April/May being quite a bit better than both. I owe this to the increasing spreads.
Oh, and while collecting dividends, quiet is GOOD. Maybe grab a few monthlies over at ARR or try to bag a MITT/AGNC dividend in the interim.
There's still going to be cash left over from 2012 that can be spread around the first 3 Q's of 2013. So unless the income situation has been severely hampered, I wouldn't expect much of a change to the div.
