    The management of AGNC is absloutly brilliant! They have secondary offerings when the shares are selling above book value then when shares dip and are selling below book value they initiate a share buy back program. This is a win win for shareholders.

    Just remember that in the long run, only net interest income less operating costs matters since all the rest will zero out eventially.

    I have been with AGNC for 3 years, along with other mRETS. Although they have not well in the past couple of weeks, much is a refection of the entire financial markets. Overall, I have been happy to add their 14% average interest income to my retirement while they (including AGNC) are not affected as much by all this pessimistic market talk and high speed trading accounts.

    Just keep the dividends coming. I've recouped almost 50% of my original investment from dividends while the share price keeps appreciating. Couldn't ask for much more.

    net spread income is down though. They said they will buy back shares only when it is a good deal/ around book value. Maybe a dividend cut coming soon? I know it was $1.36 taxable income per share down from $1.62/share last quarter.
