    Those guys invested more into the same. The managment didn't care to destroy the book value with more and more products sensitive to interest rate rising, but the spread is allowing ARR to gain a lot, therefore they can mantain the current dividend, which ,with this depressed price, translaltes into on of the most attractive yields in the market. We are 30% below BV, if stock price doesn't recover now, so it will never do. If interest rates stabilyzes, ARR has the potential to go up a good 20%-25%. The problem has been the luck to trust so far.

    Does that mean that if my 1000 shares drop to 3 bucks, I'll be able to brag of a 36 % yield ?

    Bernie it's only a loss if you sell it. The ironic answer is YES. Each month takes $0.07 off of your cost basis and there is a market for these stocks. The worst thing you can do is sell right now.


    Also, when it gets close to $5 you can sell call options against the position. I sold several when it was at $4.95 earlier this week and was able to pick up another 5 months of dividends.


    These are INCOME stocks. Make some INCOME baby!

    Having bought this stock at $7.50 and sold it at $6.6+..,. I can't see anyone sensible buying this & expecting an uptick. Why?


    The preferential stocks may have taken priority over dividend payments. In other words, ordinary stock holders have been hung out to dry by these additional issuances + dropping dividends (from 12c to 7c... that's a big drop).


    Without concrete reasons for the stock to turn around, and a rising interest rate environment isn't one, this one has nowhere to go but down for some time.


    Ex-ARR owner.

    murray---36% or 28% wasn't the reason for the comment. I happen to be long both ARR (down about 4 dividends cents since I first bought) & the A & B preferred in another account.
    But thanks for the arithmetic lesson.
