  1. Thank you Tim and SteveA. I own the 8.2 % CHMI-A and have owned CHMI common both of which held up relatively well during the year end dip. CHMI-A cumulative fixed is trading today around the same as the FF, I’m not seeing a huge reason to own this FF versus the A shares….what am I missing here?
