    My thoughts on $MTGE... is that interest rates are probably nearing a low point and will go higher over the next 3-12 months on long end.but

    • William Packer: So a rising rate environment should be OK for $MTGE, yet I will benefit from my hedges anyways. That gives me more spread risk.

    • William Packer: But it also reduces my interest rate risk for $MTGE.

        $MTGE is cheap compared to other mREITs. I am a buyer under $20.

            Converted 25,000 shares of $CHMI into 25,000 shares of $SLRC. Was a 1 for 1 swap almost.. cost $100 out of pocket. Very close. $AGNC

                If I was $HAL.. I would offer the equivalent of $72-$74 per share for $BHI. Guess we will see soon enough.

                    Purchased 25,000 shares of $CHMI @ $17.84 cost average. Very close to my $17.75 target level. I am happy with this risk/reward here. $AGNC

                    • William Packer: And the effect to NAV would be minimal... 26,500 shares MTGE at NAV close to $590k. So little changed yet huge boost to income side.
                      Nov 14, 1:40 PM
                    • William Packer: I would then stop swapping. Take a break and enjoy higher income from MTGE and hopefully NAV appreciation over time.

                        • William Packer: I agree with that riot..Selling $AGNC at the $22.80 price level seems like a good idea.maybe consider purchasing MTGE. The spread is $3.11.

                            Maintain personal buy rating on $CHMI and price target of $23.00, a premium to NAV. (No current position in the stock)

                            • William Packer: Continued: if rates keep falling - $CHMI could face some depreciation on MSRs but mostly offset by agencies. Higher prepays is a risk.

                                                If you are long $PSEC, recommend selling in after hours at $9.75, buying $TICC on the open. This avoids gap risk, locks in gains if UP.
