    This proposal smells bad. Executive compensation practices have been self serving enough for many public companies even with full disclosure. With this new hiding place, the games could become completely unfair to the shareholders. If Annaly managers want to hide their compensation, then go private and put your own capital up. I'll be voting no! I hope all their institutional owners follow suit.
