Ho hum. Here we go again. People saying somehow PHT has changed and made things worse for December. People do this every year. Unless you know something I don't, pucktoretiresoon, I would expect a "January" dividend to be declared a week from tomorrow (the 20th, the day after the Dec. dividend gets paid) and that "January" dividend to go "ex" and be taxable very late this month, payable in January. Then go back to a regular schedule in February. Been that way for years. Here's the 2011 version:
No, .80 per quarter as opposed to the 1.05 per quarter paid three months ago. Looks like somebody doesn't know how to divide by four the 4.20 annual dividend he saw on some chart. AGNC up in after-hours trading, btw.
The Company also announced today that in the third quarter of 2013, it made open market purchases of approximately 11.9 million shares of American Capital Agency common stock, or 3% of the Company's outstanding shares as of June 30, 2013.
