With today’s interest rate environment, you have to question whether or not a company like Annaly Capital Management (NYSE: NLY) is in trouble, and if this mREIT is a good investment. Annaly Capital Management is a mortgage REIT that primarily invests in agency mortgage backed securities (MBS), which are mortgage loans that are guaranteed by either Freddie Mac (OTCMKTS: FMCC) or Fannie Mae (OTCMKTS: FNMA). The company purchases these assets by borrowing money with short-term loans that have the lowest interest rates, and earning the difference between the interest they receive on the long-term loans they purchase and the interest they pay on the short-term loans.
