    Drat! Now I can get only a 12% yield. What should I do?
    I suppose I could buy a CD, or 10 year Treasury. Oh what
    was that? Details, Details.

    Agreed that savings, CDs, and treasuries aren't the place to be... but I'd still be concerned considering they've cut twice now when many peers have maintained or increased their dividends. I'm long TWO... solid so far and steady dividends. All REITs got a bit of good news from the FOMC decision to extend OpTwist. AGNC and ARR are also worth a look.
