    Should I buy NLY, AGNC now or wait until dividend day and buy before record day?

    • mix: You entry price point probably depends on whether you consider these REITS short term of long term investments. Whats your plan?

    • mix: You want to get your entry price point as low as possible. Take a look at the 52 wk range for both stocks. Which looks like a better buy?

    • Ocean Man: You want to buy those when they announce an SPO - makes them drop 5% and they do it 2 or 3 times a year.

    • TruffelPig: @Ocean: That SPO announcement typically comes with the dividend announcement or with earnings? Are you keeping an eye on those?

    • antiqueron: I looked for record on Agnc and their previous SPOs but could no find. Do you expect one around Feb 6th anouncement of Earning day?

    • Matthew Davis: Now is a good time for NLY because its price has gone down from 18-17 now 16's so not bad. I would then wait till divy day, good AGNC 27's
