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.
