We continue to diversify our revenue sources by growing our residential investment platform, which we believe will generate outsized returns on our capital. As of March 31, 2012, we had $65 million of residential securities outstanding with corresponding leverage of $55 million. These securities generally have an average expected life of 18 to 24 months and are expected to generate levered returns in excess of 20%.In addition, in April, we originated three loans totaling $30 million with a weighted average yield of approximately 6% and expected levered returns in excess of 15%, and purchased three residential securities totaling $4 million with a weighted average yield of 6% and expected levered returns in excess of 20%.
