    You assume Iran has just been sitting on oil. I suggest that they have been selling a lot of oil out the back door under the radar at a discounted price. Not everyone plays the sanctions game. JMO

    FED - So what?

    In my opinion, I do not worry about a small hike in short term interest rates. I do worry about short term rates going up while the long term rates stay the same or decrease. The yield curve can kill mreits. I do not want to be around if we move toward an inverted yield curve.

    One year ago the spread between the 3mo (0.04%) and the 10yr (2.77%) was 2.73% Today the spread is 1.84%. Mreits borrow short term and invest long term, making money on the spread. As the spread tightens, the ability to make profits without increasing leverage gets harder to do. Things will be great if short and long term rates rise slowly at the same level. That does not appear to be what is happening over the last year.

    Ask me in 6 months. Kidding aside, yes, buy and hold and collect the fat $4.50 plus a year in interest payouts. JMO

    No K1, monthly interest payout taxable as ordinary income. Because most mriets pay quarterly, morl has a large payout every 3rd month followed by 2 small payouts. To get an idea as to what it is paying look any the last 3 months.

    Sentiment: Buy
