QE3 won't last forever. It has effectively boosted housing prices and lowered default numbers. In turn, AGNC's assets have higher book value. The company recently announced a share buyback for when shares fall below book value. Currently, trading at a price 5% below book value should present investors with a chance to get in near the floor.
