Is NYMT Stock A Buy?
Many income investors love REITs because they generally pay out a very lovely dividend and have tax advantages. AlphaBetaStock gets requests from readers if we would recommend a specific stock to buy. The short answer to where to buy NYMT stock at this time is no. The mortgage sector REITs are already crumbling, and we don’t see any turnaround soon. Yesterday it was reported that 45,000 businesses were closing this week because they couldn’t pay the rent.
Many Investors that were sold NYMT by their financial advisors are filing claims to recover their losses. InvestmentFraudLawyers.com has set up a hotline at 888-628-5590 for NYMT investors to give a free consultation.
