Was I wrong about American Capital Agency? Maybe not.

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 ( AGNC -1.24% ). 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.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
