Dividend at 16% and the stock remains fairly stabilized. What am I missing and why would I buy a CD at 1% when I can get 16 times that with AGNC? Seems too good to be true and you know what they say about sounds too good to be true...16% vs. what a CD is paying?
Mike, I don't see "fear" mixed in with investing. I know it is common but I have done my home work. AGNC has performed very well for me, it is one of my "chickens" that lay golden eggs---or dividends four times a year. I can not find and investment that matches the type of return I am getting in AGNC and TWO. For me, these are machimes, and until something happens, I am long, and holding and trying to buy more with the dividends. You mention a CD, buy that is NO investment, nor is the banks "HIGH yielding" savings, now those are losers.
