AGNC is receiving a lot of buzz in the news, probably because of its ridiculous dividend payment. This is by far the riskiest dividend stock I purchase, but I’m pairing buying it with LTC, which I believe is the least risky stock I purchase. One thing I love about this stock is that the price is staying around the same spot. AGNC, for better or for worse, wasn’t greatly impacted by the volatility starting in December of 2018. I’m hoping this stock will benefit from rate increases enough to stay around $18.00 while I increase my ownership.
