Investors searching for income are definitely attracted to government guaranteed debt that yields more than U.S. treasuries. We believe IVR’s mortgage investments are well-positioned to benefit in this environment. We have seen a rallying credit that gained strength after the Greek elections and the Twist extension. There has been increasing rate commission on the part of investors that lower yields are here for a while and that they should consider transitioning away from treasuries, because the yield compression and credit assets is likely to continue. For that reason and the hopeful signs that have emerged in housing markets, we expect non-agency RMBS will perform well even as the economy continues to struggle and foreign markets remain under pressure.Agency mortgages have continued to rally as well due to only modestly higher prepayments and we do expect this trend to continue. The conviction behind our strategy is strong. The money raised from our successful preferred offering was invested within days in high-quality bonds as we found some attractive relative value opportunities in credit.
