    • Joseph P. Porter: You're joking! X-div is 1 week away! You end up blowing the $1.25/share, and surely the price will climb a little more in the next week.

    • DaLatin: Nope.Market will comes back AGNC up with it & it's paying U 4 the hold ! CYS 2 ! & other mreits. Fed said 20 yrs of wealth gone & LOW rates

    • antiqueron: AGNC obviously you don't know that the price will drop ex dividend date by the amount of the dividend. Look at the history...

    • antiqueron: AGNC will buy when price drops on a new issue they will probably announce days latter. enables me to offset short losses with short gains.
      6/13/12
    • Joseph P. Porter: I know price drops on ex-div, but am I playing it too close to wait and sell on opening on ex-div, maximizing $/share & earning dividend?

    • DaLatin: Obviously I don't know ! Right ! 66 years and never even close to a down year for me or Any client ! Maybe AGNC creeps higher until the ex !

    • antiqueron: AGNC Joseph if you sell on opening of ex div it will be to late, it will have already droped on opening. Have to sell the day before.

    • antiqueron: Dalatin: Agnc then you are 87 years old then? U understand the offset for capitol losses if I take divedend it can't be used 2 offset loss.
      6/14/12
    • DaLatin: Yep ! 87 and AGNC is up over a buck since you sold. Or more eh ?
      6/14/12
    • Joseph P. Porter: So far, looks like strategy of holding until opening on ex-div doesn't hurt, unless AGNC does a complete 180 turn in next couple days.
      6/14/12
    • antiqueron: you hold till that morning you will lose
      6/15/12
    • antiqueron: Agnc is up .37 more than where I sold. I dont pretend to be able to mark the highs but just be close. 11% since March. Hogs get slaughtered
      6/15/12
    • Joseph P. Porter: Cut AGNC loose, then it went up $.02. Gotta grow me some new cajones, even if they are hogs.
      6/15/12
    • DaLatin: Bought in 28s and will hold until the slightest hint of Fed language speak and trail 45 cent stop.
      6/16/12
    • antiqueron: Joseph dont judge till ex div date and see what happens . you wont be dissapointed then
      6/17/12
    • Joseph P. Porter: Antiqueron - I'm sure you're right. I hate making decisions. I own mostly ETFs, and just let them set. Yld on mREITs just too attractive.
      6/17/12
    • antiqueron: will buy back 50% ex div date issue anouncement and buy 50%.conservative and have seen profits dissapear 4 no reason if make 11% I lock in
      6/18/12
    • Joseph P. Porter: Also have TWO and NLY - will hold TWO will take div & sell NLY (on paper I do better to take div), Re-buy AGNC & NLY when they settle down.
      6/18/12
    • antiqueron: I dont like Nly have been to much of a loser for the past year for me
      6/19/12
    • antiqueron: Two is ok but I bet they have a new issue after ex date and I might buy some of that then
      6/19/12
    • Joseph P. Porter: Both have paid off for me. NLY has taken a while, but TWO has been comparable to AGNC. One of my best performers.
      6/19/12
    • DaLatin: I am long a bunch an happy with all of them so far. And ,TWO is a good one with up side potential ! PS.. I am glad I held it for the div !!
