Among the stocks making new 52-week highs today are two mortgage REITs, the sector proving itself on both risk-on and risk-off days as short rates look to be anchored near zero for pretty much forever. American Capital Agency (AGNC) is up 17% YTD while yielding 15.2%, and CYS Investments is up 6.9% YTD while yielding 14.2%.

    In the past, the AGNC Q2 dividend was announced as early as 6/10 and as late as 6/22 with the xdate typically around 6/21 to 6/30. So I would not expect the announcement for another week or two.

     

    Full info on past declarations, ex-dates etc is on their web site
