Commenting on the Company's results for the quarter, Mr. Thomas Akin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are very pleased with the consistency of our results in this challenging investment environment. Book value increased by almost 7% during the third quarter as all fixed income assets appreciated on the back of QE3. And while QE3 has supported our existing portfolio book value, it has reduced the expected returns we are seeing in our investment opportunity set. However, our diversified investment strategy and our significant holdings of prepayment protected commercial mortgage securities should dampen the effects of lower yields in the coming months. Additionally, our hybrid strategy affords us the flexibility to pursue opportunities in both the agency and non-Agency universe, where we continue to see pockets of value, particularly in CMBS. During the third quarter, we issued our Series A Preferred Stock at an attractive 8.5% coupon and we were very patient in adding assets with the new capital. As a result, our average earning assets were lower than target for the quarter. Currently, we are at our portfolio target size and may increase the investment portfolio modestly in the fourth quarter principally from reducing the amount of capital we hold against our Agency ARM portfolio. In summary, we were able to generate solid results for the third quarter while retaining balance sheet flexibility."
