  • Gross. Dividend cut again even though net interest margins should have improved. Special dividend is just a return of book value, which is much lower today then in September due to the mbs sell off. Enjoy your new tax bill to come if you hold these shares. Taxes on a return from book value.

  • Exactly what is the tax bill? Is it ordinary income tax? If that's 25% wouldn't the CYS owner get the other 75%?
