AGNC reports 2nd quarter earnings. Warning: Dividend payout ratio over 100%.

 American Capital Agency Corp. reported 2nd quarter earnings today.  I will provide analysis tomorrow.  The dividend payout ratio is over 100% ($1.40 dividend / $1.36 net earnings).  That isn't good news.  I wouldn't buy this over-leveraged mortgage REIT.  Here are the highlights. 

(RTTNews) – American Capital Agency Corp. (AGNC: News ) reported net income for the second-quarter of $177.8 million or $1.36 per share, compared to $36.86 million or $1.23 million in the comparable quarter last year.
