On CAPS, 95% of the 817 members who have rated American Capital Agency believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Earlier this month, one of those Fools, WealthLift, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:
AGNC is in the upper crust of the bullish mREIT sector fueled by the current low interest rate environment. It is the best mREIT of the bunch because of: (1) its lower than average prepayment rate, (2) superb Funds from Operations (FFO) growth, and (3) undervalued P/FFO multiples.
If you want market-beating returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, American Capital Agency may not be your top choice.
