        $HTS ARMs portfolio should hold up better than most. I give it a $20 price target after reviewing quarterly results.

            $AGNC management notes that spreads lately have been tightening when rates rise and widening when rates fall. Well... What if it doesn't?

            • William Packer: Because you got rate risk and spread risk with AGNC... So with the present situation.. can't see much upside in book value.. only downside

            • William Packer: I stick with my current price target of $20 on $AGNC with possible downside risk to my target. (meaning it can easily drop below $20 later)

                prospects of further language changes in the Fed statement should not surprise investors, but it just might cause a sell off in bonds $AGNC

                    I am putting a personal price target on $TWO of $11.00. The company understands and manages interest rate risk very well. Risk is very low.

                        Low rates cannot be "contained." As the "sleeping beast" awakens(US economy) rates will rise.$CYS, $MTGE, $AGNC. Book values will decline

                                            SUGGESTION: SELL $MTGE, $AGNC, BUY $SLRC. Why? price to book discount is bigger for $SLRC. MTGE,AGNC likely to report bad quarters.

                                                    Now might be the time to sell positions in $AGNC and $MTGE and rotate into $ACSF. Higher short rates may drive panic early next year.
