On October 31, 2011, we paid our third quarter 2011 dividend of $0.25 per share of common stock to shareholders of record as of October 11, 2011. Book value per common share was $7.16 at the end of the third quarter versus $7.48 at June 30, 2011 due primarily to price weakness within the Non-Agency mortgage backed security sector. This is after the $0.25 dividend deducted.For the third quarter ended September 30, 2011 we generated net income allocable to common stockholders of $81.2 million or $0.23 per share of common stock. Core earnings for the third quarter were $84.7 million or $0.24 per share of common stock.
