Was I Wrong About This Monster-Dividend Stock?

Back in December, Matt Koppenheffer, co-host of The Motley Fool's financials-focused show, Where the Money Is, told David Hanson he'd rather drink sour milk than put his own money into shares of American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC  ) . Three months later, shares of American Capital Agency have climbed from their lows.

Does this mean Matt is wrong about his decision or will it take more time for this decision to play out? Matt reminds investors of the importance of "process" vs. "outcome" and why another mREIT he prefers continues to be a better option.

Dividend investors love the mREIT yields. They love the yields on these stocks, too.
One of the dirty secrets that few finance professionals will openly admit is the fact that dividend stocks as a group handily outperform their non-dividend paying brethren. The reasons for this are too numerous to list here, but you can rest assured that it's true. However, knowing this is only half the battle. The other half is identifying which dividend stocks in particular are the best. With this in mind, our top analysts put together a free list of nine high-yielding stocks that should be in every income investor's portfolio.
