Minus sector giants, mREITs head higher

There's a bit of green spreading across the mREIT sector this morning as Treasurys reverse an early plunge following the strong jobs report - the 10-year yield is now off 3 basis points to 2.85% after climbing to 2.93% just after the 8:30 ET release.

However, there's no relief for sector leaders Annaly (NLY -1%) and American Capital Agency (AGNC -1.5%), both of  which continue to reel following Goldman's Sell recommendation yesterday - each have carved out new 52-week lows this morning. There may be plenty of players in the mREIT sector, but for the institutional big boys who have the Goldman report on their desks, there's just NLY and AGNC. Others in the red include: Armour (ARR -0.7%) and CYS Investments (CYS -1.1%).

Posting gains: Chimera (CIM +0.8%), Invesco (IVR +0.2%), Hatteras (HTS +0.2%), Dynex (DX +0.7%), New York Mortgage (NYMT +0.3%), Apollo Residential (AMTG +0.7%), Javelin (JMI +1.1%), AG Mortgage Investment (MITT +2.3%).

    NLY and AGNC are trading 21% below the last quarter book value. Goldman is placing a sell at the trough. I think a great opportunity to buy, if willing to hold for a 12 month crest.

    ITM calls for NLY look interesting here.


    JUL14 $8 calls for only $1.97!!!


    Do you think NLY can gain 20¢ in price value per share over the next 8 months...where it would STILL be ~21% under current book?


    Think about it.

    Be careful there and ensure you include the dividend in the pricing of options for NLY, holding only the contract you will miss out on the div, so it is calculated as a loss as opposed to holding the stock.

    ARR s performance right now. is simply. capitulation of retailers who should have never been in Reits. to begin with . And the sooner they capitulate , the better. Declaration of dividends for the next Q coming in two weeks. If dividend is mantained it should boost the stock
