Some preassure on the stock prices came today due to the possibility of future interest rate hikes. ARR is down $.09 but AGNC was not affected. The ARR portfolio may actually be somewhat less affected due to the adjustable ARM mortgage backed securities they have. If you have a fixed rate mortgage but have to pay more for the short term loan then the spread earned will be less unless leverage is raised. ARR has a thinner trading market and less time on the market with dividends. CIM $3.94 +0.00, ARR $7.58 -$.09, AGNC $30.00 +.03, IVR $22.83 -$.12.
