So somewhat uniquely we think that our cost of funds on our agency portfolio will decrease over the next twelve months or so, which is somewhat unusual on our space. Now, obviously at the same time, to the expense that we replace run off on the Agencies, we are not buying new securities that yield 3.15. So we think that while the assets that we add will obviously come on at lower yield, the funding cost somewhat uniquely will decrease for us.On the Non-Agency side, you can see that the yield in the first quarter on the Non-Agency portfolio was 6.92%, so close to 7% yield. Our average cost of funds there a little over 2% for a net interest rate spread of about 4.75%.
