Dividends4Life: Safe 7.79% Dividend Yield

Safe 7.79% Dividend Yield

Posted by D4L | Monday, July 24, 2017 | | 0 comments »

Hello friends, I brought you a solid 7.79% dividend yield. All investments carry some risk - this one just carries less. A relatively safe company in the mortgage REIT sector has two preferred shares which should be valued closer together.

AGNC Investment Corp. (AGNC) invests in mostly fixed rate agency mortgage backed securities. They use a reasonable amount of leverage and they hedge out a substantial portion of their duration risk. Therefore, the odds of AGNC getting decimated are much smaller than for most other mREITs. Further, the company has a significant amount of common equity compared to their preferred equity which keeps preferred shareholders safer.
