  • Annaly And American: OK, How Do The Best Analysts Rate These Stocks? [View article]
    I agree with your artical. I sold my holdings in AGNC last week and I am glad I did that. Now to move on and decide what to do with INTC and Sdrl. I have a ton of Seadrill and they are selling their equipment to Their Partnership. You need a masters degree to decide on SDRL.

    Tooooooo complicated for me. I just sold my 500 shares. To me the most important factor is the Fed's policy. Now they are talking about stopping the bond buying, so I am out of AGNC. next I will sell INTC and SDRL. Both are going down the toilett. (without any charts or fantastic studying).

  • Mortgage prepayment rates jump to their highest level since 2005 as homeowners take advantage of record-low rates (and federal assistance) to refinance. At the rate seen in August, 25% of current debt would be erased in a year, according to LPS. Not surprisingly, the mREIT sector - taking it on the chin for the past few days - is lit up bright red again today. [View news story]
    All of us retired, older people are going to be in bad shape after the first of the year. It seems like everyday there is bad news for us. If it is not MReits, it is the "Cliff" we are facing. Last year it was loss of income from Cd's and all the calls on Preferred stocks. Now we are all worred about loosing the preferred rate on Qualified Dividends and the increase of the income tax rate on income between $70,700 and $142,700 which may go up to 28% from 25%. I am glad I am 78 years old. I would not want to be just starting out in this crazy world we now live in.
