    thanks mr. keyes ? look again john! mr. keyes makes $ 35,000,000 a year salary. he spends 4 % of that in buying 139,000 shares! clever PR move to entice john ,zino and all the other rubes into buying more.are all your noses plugged up ? can't you smell a clever ploy ?

    Keyes makes 7 mil a year, not 35 mil. Still a huge amount and he can well afford to buy the stock.

    saltspring, i think you've got your facts mixed up. you might also consider running that idea back through the thinking cap.

    Without question Mr. Keye's investment in his own company is a strong positive direction of NLY !

    I make 30K/year and just invested 1K into CSX...so, because that's only 3.3% of my annual income, something is fishy about that purchase and I should be viewed with suspicion?

     

    Why so cynical, saltspring? Has Keyes done something to upset you?

    The CEO knows that the new emphasis on buying undervalued key real estate assets are the Golden Ticket.

    Not much to tell, I am a novelst investor trying to make some money through dividends. When you consider inflation, earning less then one present on savings, you are actually losing money.
    It gives me confidence when I see the Pres. of a company buying shares in his own Company. I think that this is good time to invest when you believe the market has bottomed.

    I think it is a smart buy now that shares have slumped 20%.
    little downside here...

    I hope its not a ploy. i have invested enough in nly and nly-a stock. hope it still continues to pay the high dividend. If that crazy obama does not tax our dividends the stock should still be a good deal.

    Press, if you follow Jim Cramer, there is no way you have a successful record...
