Invests in mortgages on a leveraged basis. Tends to well in a falling interest rate environment. 15% dividend. Has owned in the past. Not now because lots of talk about trying to force American financing mechanism to the detriment to this company. A very, very well run mortgage REIT. IF you can assess risks, you could own it.

(Top Pick Sept. 28/10, Down 17.82) Thought that market was improving with capacity to fill up. In Q4 it turned out they weren’t filling up. They weren’t able to hit the numbers so he exited. Business fundamentals were deteriorating.

This is economically sensitive, but is a large holding for him. Iron Ore prices have held globally. If production costs go up it doesn’t hurt them. Pays a nice yield. If you believe that it is possible that growth can stay somewhat positive, this should continue to do quite well. Price is moving around because there is concern about the global economy.
