07/13/16 02:40 PMShort Interest Falls 13.7% For MFA - The most recent short interest data has been released for the 06/30/2016 settlement date, which shows a 1,517,325 share decrease in total short interest for MFA Financial, Inc. (NYSE: MFA), to 9,544,099, a decrease of 13.72% since 06/15/2016. Total short interest is just one way to look at short data; another metric that we here at Dividend Channel find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days (at the average volume) it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed. Average daily volume for MFA at the 06/30/2016 settlement increased to 2,590,488, as compared to 1,386,408 at the 06/15/2016 report. That brought "days to cover" down to 3.68, a 53.82% decrease from the 7.98 days to cover calculated at the previous short interest data release.

07/07/16 03:34 PMMFA Financial Passes Through 11% Yield Mark - Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, in trading on Thursday, shares of MFA Financial, Inc. (NYSE: MFA) were yielding above the 11% mark based on its quarterly dividend (annualized to $0.80), with the stock changing hands as low as $7.26 on the day. Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock market's total return. To illustrate, suppose for example you purchased shares of the iShares Russell 3000 ETF (IWV) back on 5/31/2000 — you would have paid $78.27 per share. Fast forward to 5/31/2012 and each share was worth $77.79 on that date, a loss of $0.48 or 0.6% decrease over twelve years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $10.77 per share in dividends over the same period, increasing your return to 13.15%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.0%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 11% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable. MFA Financial, Inc. (NYSE: MFA) is a member of the Russell 3000, giving it special status as one of the largest 3000 companies on the U.S. stock markets.
