In this segment from The Motley Fool's everything-financials show, Where the Money Is, analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer take a listener's question regarding Armour Residential REIT (NYSE: ARR ) . The question is:
You recently mentioned Armour in your program on selling losers. According to Charles Schwab, the 2013 earnings are $1.54. With a current payout of $0.15 per quarter (or $0.60 per year) they do not come close to the required 90% per year. Will they have to do a special dividend to catch up or up the payout otherwise? Could this make them a buy?
