This stock is definitely the worst as you claim. Look at its good (granted short) history. Since Jan. (1yr) it has produced a 12% gain ans since inception 34%. With a 18% dividend thrown in. You should not worry about the day to day fluctuations. It is growing slowly and providing a great stream on $$$ thru its div.
Share price has done practically nothing since last offering unlike most MREITs which dip then spring back soon thereafter. CIM which was up again today may unleash another offering at anytime, yet investors trust in the management to come thru with Qtly. numbers and support share price even with an offering lurking. Investors fear CYS which is why share price hasn't moved. Once CYS releases thier numbers, which is a scary event as witnessed by the Q3 sell-off, share price should move fast one way or the other. Bottom Line is Investors do not trust CYS as much they do most other MREITs which is factored into the 19%, stagnant share price and high short interest.
