  • American Capital Agency: Why You Should Buy Today's Panic Selling [View article]
    Can appreciate your comment, rff, since I bought at $32.41 a couple months ago. Getting out now would mean a real loss of about $20,000 (Includes estimate of payout of exdiv. of $2100 July 26). I'm weighing the benefit of less worrying about stock and taking the minus $20,000 as a 7 year write off. (My purchase was in a non IRA account.)

    Thanks for sharing.

  • American Capital Agency: What Now? [View article]
    Still owning 2000 shares...down about 16 grand less than when I invested $64,000 almost months ago. Not what I was looking for or expected obviously. May soon have to just take a big tax loss since its in a taxable Schwab account.

  • "The issue isn't if the Fed exits, it's a question of whether they exit way earlier than expected," American Capital (AGNC) CIO Gary Kain tells Bloomberg, feeling his portfolio is better positioned now than in Q1, when higher rates took a chunk out of book value. The Fed will be "extremely slow" in its withdrawal, says KBW's Mike Widner. "That spells an environment that actually gets better for the mREITs (MORT, REM) before it gets worse." [View news story]
    I'm still in confusion...thanks to the ups and downs of AGNC these last couple of weeks. On 2000 shares, I'm currently down $5,000...not what I expected. But I'm still holding on...didn't panic when it was down more than a point more than currently. Think I'll stick it out at least till I see what happens with the June ex-dividend...nothing has been declared about change in the current $1.25 dividend.

    Bought 2000 sh at 32.41 the day of the Boston disaster...3/21. Now I'm wondering whether to dump and take my $3000 loss. Any thoughts?

  • American Capital Agency Corp.'s Earnings Disaster - A Warning Of Things To Come? [View article]
    12 days ago, I bought AGNC at 30.41....2000 shares. Is this the beginning of more declines? What's happened in the past when there have been losses? Am I too nervous....or just stupid?
