    Oh man, you should have held about 100 shares and let 'em drip. That would really add up by the end of 2014,

    I took the Capital Gain and the Dividend, I expect another stock issuance soon with this large a gap between BV and PPS. (made approx 12% on a Qtr.s investment.)

     

    I'll Buy back in on that dip and try and do it all over again.

    With the Dividend AGNC is paying, you'll double your investment in 4-5/years. After that, its like owning a free ATM Machine.

     

    Ignore the share price. Focus on the Dividend. Rule of 72 people.

    taking 12% a qtr would equal 48% py and a double in just over a yr.
    or taking the 12% then just buying the agncp at 8% and I cash 20% py
    with greater safety. lots of opinions and choices on how to make your money here. But one thing is for sure MReits are where the returns are.

    Double check your math. Its not 12% per quarter.

     

    $1.25 * 4 = $5.00 / $31.66sh = 15.79%/yr (3.94%/qtr)
