Fluctuations of the magnetization in spin valves are shown to cause resistance noise that strongly depends on the magnetic configuration. Assisted by the dynamic exchange interaction through the normal-metal spacer, the electrical noise level of the antiparallel configuration can exceed that of the parallel one by an order of magnitude, in agreement with recent experimental results.
