Annaly (NLY +0.6%) is upped to a buy at Compass Point. As Dividend Master notes, something does not compute when mortgage REITs that invest only in agency paper are getting sold (NLY is off 3% in a month, -9% Y/Y) while MBS prices MBB are ripping to a near 52-week high.

    NLY is a total return bargain at the moment.

    The market is manipulated by those who take advantage of investors like me. We trust our brokers and analysts and then the hedge funds and others stick it to us. The government also prints phony statistics to move markets. Just willing to bet you that the 120, 000 jobs report is revised down the line to a higher figure. That would mean that the downward market move today would not have happened. I do not trust the report. I hear from so many sources that more jobs were created and not counted. Just you wait and see. Wall Street and the Government should start telling the truth and not sticking it too us,

    There is no such thing as "the truth." The best any official report of financial matters or the economy goes, they may be able to approximate the truth and it then can be revised. Then there is your own personal perception of the truth. I recommend fine tuning your own perceptions before pointing a finger and projecting your errors onto others. This may enable you to make better investment decisions in the future.

    Every analysts and pundit recommended NLY over AGNC. Said management was the best and this was the safest of the mortgage reits. I bot high, 18.69 and it has done nothing but go down while agnc has gone up. So, what's up?

    Always ask yourself WHY analysts and pundits recommend something.

    Since you followed the advice of analysts and pundits to make your investment decisions you should probably ask them.

    Personally, I stay away from CIM. Have a look at MTGE instead.

    I have been in the stock market for a long time with ups and downs.
    Two years ago changed to dividend stock investing with gives me over 10% or better a year. I am always surprised to see so many opposing articles in SA on the same stocks.Now I have learned to stay calm and not to jump in and out of a stock,so long they keep paying me 8% or more.By doing so I realize that stocks go up and down!
