I think most of us expected .11 or .12. I guessed .12 on one post, and .11 on another; some guessed .10. Also, over the year, the div has fallen about the same percentage as the sp. Yhoo is right in a sense; the loss in sp is bigger than the div can make up in one year. But the important question is: will the earnings, and div, and sp continue to fall? I don't think so unless conditions worsen. Operation twist has hurt all Mreits to some extent. But; will the hurt get worse? I don't think so. This is still a very good value and the insiders agree.
hahaha you are clueless, if the market keeps on going down and we have a recession, this p.o.s will see $2, by then, you would have lost a good chunk of your money while collecting your wonderful "high dividend" It will take you years to recover your losses while you collect your "high dividend" and pay taxes on it.. and pray CIM doesn't go under
