  • Dividend announcement on 11/21/14 states the following,

    "It is anticipated but not certain that approximately 100% of the Fund's distribution will be treated as a return of capital. The final determination of such amounts will be made and reported to shareholders in early 2015, after the end of the calendar year when the Fund determines its earnings and profits for the year. The final tax status of the distributions may differ substantially from this preliminary information. "

  • When AGNC announced on September 30th that they would begin paying monthly, I sold some others and bought AGNC. Anyone else moving money into AGNC just because they are now paying monthly? Thanks in advance for your reply...

    Sentiment: Buy

  • After agnc announced on September 30th that it would start paying monthly the stock price has moved from around $21.25 to over $23 today. At today's $23 price and a $0.22 monthly payout, return is around 11.5% per year. I do think investment money is moving from ARR to AGNC. The return is a bit less from AGNC, but I think it is perceived to be a bit safer than ARR. I want a monthly payer and when AGNC went monthly, I moved out of ARR into AGNC. JMO

    The recent sell off over the last couple of weeks from around$ 22.50 to $20 took morl way into oversold territory. I think we go up from here. Those thinking they will buy at a better price tomorrow will be disappointed. If we close today at the currant price of $20.94 and open tomorrow at $19.94, doubtful we will see any sell off from that level. MORL is paying around $4.60 distribution per year. At a $19.94 price open tomorrow annual yield would be around 23% JMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    MORL announced today 10/7 at 10am with an X-date of 10/8 means today is last day to buy to get the $0.99 distribution for this month. Management allows no time for a run up in price. Shame on them. JMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    We have seen the reits take a hit in recent days. I think a lot of people still believe the fed will be raising interest rates sooner rather than later. The economic news today may indicate any rate changes will be later rather than sooner. Keep in mind that for every 1% rise in rates the interest paid on the US debt will increase by about $150 billion. So, if you consider 4% to be norm, that would reflect $600 billion added to the US annual cost of borrowing. Who in Washington wants wants to cut spending to pay for the $600 billion in added interest payments.

    In my opinion we should all get use to these low interest rates for a extended period of time. Perhaps 3 to 5 years from now we could see some meaningful movement in rates. I will stay invested in MORL and get paid while they jawbone about rates increasing. JMO

    Correct, investors will get the $0.65 and then every month starting with November will have a payday.
