    Are you people still on this loser? URRE has been a losing investment for 10 years! Won't people ever learn? The only thing keeping URRE from being a penny stock on the Pink sheets is that they do reverse stock splits periodically to keep this loser listed.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    ... until today. Year-end selling likely by mutual funds and hedge funds going on.

    Interest rate increases (which would include mortgage interest rates as well) should be good for the REIT sector. All new mortgages bought with SPO money will bring in increased revenue that will bolster the dividend and should INCREASE stock price, not decrease it. No, there is something else going on here, perhaps hedge and mutual funds adjusting their portfolios for year-end presentation to shareholders, selling REITS.

    Dividend date?

    Sorry you had such a bad experience with E-Trade; but the rule of buy one day before XD and you get the dividend is correct ---- at least at most reputable brokerage firms, like Merrill Lynch and Fidelity (both of whom have credited dividends to my accounts with them according to the rule). Remember, the dividend is not PAID on XD date; it usually is paid 3-6 weeks after that date to allow the clearing house to update it's records and for the company's registrar to gets its records in order. If you bought the stock the day before XD date, you will be on record with the company as a shareholder of record for that dividend. You have a valid case against E-Trade with the SEC, if you wish to pursue it.

    NYMT--a cash machine

    With a gross ROI of 13.5% and little risk to principal with a stable stock price; and allowing say 6% for inflation, you're still netting 7.5% before taxes on your money. That sure beats savings accounts (0.0001%), bonds (3.5% but with principal at risk), and CD's (2.5%, not the music kind). There isn't another investment that does much better for income.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Just for everyone's information

    Let's look at a worst case scenario: Interest rates remain as they are for many, many years (maybe forever, but forever is a long time for no change --- the world ALWAYS changes). In this case, there is little opportunity for mortgage REITS to improve profitability; thus, there is little chance of increasing the dividend AND be fiscally responsible (note that a few REITS have sustained their dividend by borrowing $$, but that's NOT fiscally responsible over the long term).

    The only sound way to increase the dividend is to grow income from increasing mortgage interest rates (that means issuing SPO's to gain money to buy new mortgages at the higher rates).

    Sentiment: Buy
