AGNC Declares $1.40 Fourth Quarter Dividend – How much longer can they sustain this?

AGNC just declared that it will pay a $1.40 dividend for the fourth quarter 2010.  According to Google Finance there are 56.85 million shares outstanding.  So that equals a dividend payment of roughly $78.89 million.  Net income last quarter was around $60 million.  Will AGNC earn that much in 4Q2010?  I don’t think so.  If they don’t cover the dividend with earnings, then they will have to raid their piggy bank.
