  • I have been doing much better playing the Cap Gain with ARR and forgetting about the Dividend

  • Just added more ARR to my portfolio in anticipation of the dividend, so seeing it reduced is a bit disappointing. But on the bright side, it is still outperforming many other investments, including other REITs!

  • I sold my ARR before the dividend announcement in speculation that they would lower it since the Cash/Share was decreasing. I'm planning to get back in if they have another offering of shares. Can't beat a 14% dividend! Keep an eye on the financials. This past quarter they lost money. You would think with all of the share offerings they would be putting the capital to good use.

  • I considered selling but instead just put the stop-loss at $7 because my buy in was at $6.80. Glad I didn't sell now as the new stim package news seems to have outweighed the dividend cut for ARR. I'm quite happy with the yield still as any owner should be. Just needed to protect the initial capital with the stop-loss.

  • I hope that you are aware that a stop loss set at $7 does not guarantee that your shares will sell at that price. In order to insure a $7 sell price (or no sale) you would specify a sell stop limit. I think sell stops without a limit resulted in the flash crash of AGNC a few weeks ago. Many stockholders got stopped out well below their trigger price only to watch the price resume it's uptrend to new highs. Be careful with stop losses without limits!
