Just a couple of days ago, one of those Fools, nccurrie, tapped the stock as a particularly timely income opportunity: "[Ben Bernanke's] promise to keep interest rates low for another 2 years virtually guarantees [Chimera's] operations will continue at their current level, and they MUST distribute the majority of their profits. Plus, the great dividend yield makes it attractive to many conservative investors."
