The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which financial and economics sector head Ilan Moscovitz and consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discuss topics across the investing world.

Ilan and Austin discuss whether Annaly Capital or Chimera is a better buy. Both companies have seen their interest rate spreads -- and dividends -- soar in recent years. But they have very different investment styles. Deciding which is the better buy depends on your risk tolerance.
