Do what you want, and good luck.
You reall should do some homework first.
Go to Yahoo "Interactive Charts"
The 5 day chart:NLY is DOWN on AGNC about 1.37%.
The 1mth.:NLY is DOWN on AGNC about 1.4%.
The 3mth. chart:AGNC's advantage over NLY is negligible.
The 6mth.:NLY is DOWN on AGNC about 1%.
The 1yr. chart: AGNC is UP on NLY around 11%!
There's OVER 22.% difference between NLY and AGNC,
and that's not counting dividends.
Dividends are a who'nother story.
NLY doesn't and hasn't had the yield that AGNC has and has had.
The really bad part is every time NLY's yield rises(byits share price falling!).
NLY reduces its dividend.
NLY has reduced its dividend FIVE TIMES since the summer of 2011,
possibly its heyday(combined pps and div.).
NLY ? I hope a lot of fools sell so I can buy on the cheap but NLY. AGNC has out performed NLY in every way that I care about and as for leverage all MREIT's use it. As long as they are properly hedged there should be no problems.
