    Something to think about. This was paying a $.31 quarterly dividend at a price roughly around $10.65 before covid. That annualizes to $1.24. If you are averaged into this for $3.32, as you could have buying today, you may be getting more than 37% in annual dividend returns based on your investment if and when this company increases the dividend back to the pre-covid amount. Then there is the return to the price in the area of $10.65 giving you more than a 320% gain in the price.

    Can anyone articulate what the investment thesis is with this stock?

    Wmc at 3.30 with .06 dividend is better then owning mitt at 4.30 with .06 dividend. IF your just holding for dividend. I sold wmc at the last 3.50 range and bought mitt at 4.42 just to get the same divy

    Profits roll in again. Nice to see WMC coming back strongly. Worth over $4.20 per share and rising.
    GAAP net income of $10.8 million, or $0.18 per share

    If they up the dividend then 4 is very likely. I am hoping this goes the same path that MITT did post earnings.

    What does this mean: dividend is payable on April 26, 2021 to common shareholders of record as of April 2, 2021, with an ex-dividend date of March 31, 2021. What do the two dates mean????

    2022 bonds are a steal right now. Company is buying them back and will redeem at par in 18 months. Can't beat 14% Yield to maturity.
