3 Bits of Great News for Mortgage REITs: ARMOUR Residential REIT, Inc. (ARR), American Capital Agency Corp. (AGNC)

Will these instruments tantalize agency REITs? American Capital Agency may be immune, but Armour changed its charter in 2011 to allow for non-agency purchases, though it hasn’t done so. And, as we all know, Annaly is testing the waters with a new venture in the form of Crexus Investment Corp (NYSE:CXS), which invests in commercial paper — proving that even diehard agency mREITs can embrace change when the times call for it.

The opportunity is there, though these mREITs may not need to expand their horizons too much if the current tide of good news keeps flowing.
