+ Watch HTS
on My Watchlist
Sector bet. Ultimately rates will need to rise. Although they all try to adjust asset book, and to hedge, we may just be coming into a time period when things are difficult and the stock even with dividends, underperforms.
27.09 on 1/13/2012 trying for 26.90
Great dividend, good numbers. Might dump in 2013ish when rates start to increase (possibly).
there's free money right now thanks to the fed, and hopefully the economy is coming back.
we've been promised 2 more years of low interest rates. so...
HTS is a strong REIT in a strong sector and it pays high yield..
Interest rates remaining low, housing sector will be slow for next 2-4 years. Even if interest rates rise, reits will rise to the occasion.
It pays a 17% dividend at current price, but it has to be monitored increase inflation returns, (not if - when).
As long as interest rates stay low, REITS will be very profitable and pay huge dividends. Interest rates should remain low for at least 2 more years as the Real Estate market is still under pressure. The economy can't afford not to rescue Real Estate, so the Federal Government will do whatever it has to do.
its one of the stocks the "Experts" from most advisors say "Stay Away" But being a contrarian and a risk taker, I like it! It's made me rake in some decent returns. In all, for the past 12 years, I've done better than the Street!!
Buying this for the dividend so long as there is no hint of interest rates being raised
Fundamentally this stock bets on the US Gov't. It makes financial transactions using only mortgage instruments that are guaranteed by the United States. It is in a fundamentally "no lose" position. Profits are never truly guaranteed in anything, but this is as close to a safe harbor as you can get in anything dealing with real estate financials. It also has an excellent dividend rate and should show steady progressive growth as the recovery continues. Expect profits and value to rise as real estate transactions start to regain something closer to a normal volume.
As Real Estate starts to pick up so will this stock.
Fed should hold interest rates low for most of next year allowing HTS to enjoy a good spread between borrowing costs and investment income. This is based on belief that we will be in a deflationary or non-growth environment thru 2010 and continue in a long term bear market. HTS will lose market value but not as much as the S&P.
WILL OUT PERFORM DUE TO MTG. DILEMMA
high divy, high growth
