    It would be nice if the fear mongering would subside - NLY has been around long enough for investors to realise that the management team have performed over numerous years in 'challenging' markets.

    The threat of rising interest rates has been hawked for five years now, and there is no sign yet of a need for interest rate increases. Banks aren't lending all that much to the consumers of the USA, preferring to use their zero rate borrowing to play the various markets and make money risk free. They know if their bets go south they'll get bailed out again and heck, without regulations to stop them, why not play the casino? The fact that borrowing at zero percent and lending a 5% or 6% yields a profit rate of INFINITY doesn't even impress them.
