        $FSAM to cut fees on $FSC back to the 1.50% base or lower. Good for FSC, bad for $FSAM. $8 PT @ FSAM. Divy slash to $0.15 to 0.20 range FSAM

                Added 852 shares of $MCC today. Total holdings of 92,852. No margin debt. MCC remains deeply mispriced by the market.

                    I still believe in everything I said about $FSC, but feel $MCC has become the better deal based on the price. Swapped to $MCC in full,92,000

                            $17.53 is 80 cents on the dollar... Probably come down and touch that level on $MTGE.. But we will see.

                                        I am projecting a dividend cut on $MTGE to 50 cents per share, a move to realign the dividend with taxable income. Just giving heads up.
