  • More on the Wunderlich downgrade of the mREITs (REM +1.2%), (MORT +1.3%): The "lack of liquidity reached crisis levels" on Friday, says the team. "Price discovery has become a very uncertain process and we believe there is a risk that some entity - be it a mREIT or a hedge fund - could fail to meet margin requirements ... while we hope to be wrong in this case, equity investors need to be mindful of the potential downside scenarios." [View news story]
    what? Lack of liquidity in what? MBS's? and if so what duration? What exactly was the crisis level? Come on Wunderlich, you are supposed to be professionals.

  • Should An Intelligent REIT Investor Buy CapStead Mortgage? [View article]
    Just a little research would have saved you embarrassment about the history of CMO's earnings, dividends, etc... you should know that CMO completely changed their strategy a few years ago. Also your article is rife with simple misunderstandings of what CMO is... this is really a terrible article. I am amazed sometimes at what Seeking Alpha allows to be published anymore. But hey its America, everyone is entitled to their opinion

  • In The Pursuit Of Dividends: Annaly [View article]
    in small ways... slowly wading in, ready for potential losses, is a strategy i would agree with regarding NLY... pretty good article. Its still risky, but its getting cheap enough that it could be a good strategy, In reality I would start the process by mixing half and half with some of the NLY preferred shares. I do not however, feel the same however about AGNC, that one is still an interest rate casino. Good article.

  • American Capital Now A Cash Cow As A Monthly Dividend Payer [View article]
    changing a dividend to once a month from once per quarter has nothing to do with fundamentals. Its a marketing ploy in my opinion. AGNC has had a problem with transparency, so the recent announcement of monthly book value and dividend was just that... public relations. in my opinion. However, at these prices its possible AGNC is a good addition to a portfolio

    i think the issue would be current assets that were purchased at lower rates... depending on how many of those assets have been sold or rolled over, there is clearly risk to those assets dropping in price. add in the fact that these assets are bought on leverage and i think that is the concern. Long term fixed rate assets dont get benefit of rising rates since their yields dont adjust upward. and therefore widening spread. In fact, if short term rates do go up some, the spread would be squeezed if anything. As i said, if they were able to liquidate most of those previous assets then maybe your scenario plays out... but at these levels, borrowing short to buy long term fixed is crazy. We have clearly seen that while these companies might be able to hedge the spread, they have clearly this year been unable to hedge the asset depreciation risk. the outlook for slowly rising rates would favor mREITS that focus on short term adjustable rate instruments like CMO... those that focus on long term fixed rate assets are the ones that take significant book value hits.

  • Bells ringing on mortgage REITs? Goldman says Sell [View news story]
    Goldman doesnt need to buy AGNC... They can buy the same securities that AGNC buys. There is nothing magical about what AGNC holds. Any institution can go out into the marketplace and buy MBS's

  • Once And For All: Now Is The Right Time To Sell Annaly [View article]
    I dont have a position in (NLY) nor do i have one in (AGNC), but it amazes me how emotional people get about either one when someone offers pretty compelling sell side analysis. The numbers dont lie... both of those have been total disasters this year. So what if the author is short, so what if the article is bias... its a call based on solid analysis.
