Two Harbors Investment Corp. operates as a real estate investment trust (REIT) that focuses on investing in, financing, and managing residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), residential mortgage loans, residential real properties, and other financial assets. Two Harbors Investment has a market cap of $3.46 billion and is part of the financial sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 13.8, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 5.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are seven analysts that rate Two Harbors Investment a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and three rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Two Harbors Investment as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, disappointing return on equity and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

On the negative front, IFM Investments (CTC), down 15.1%, American Realty Investors (ARL), down 4.8%, Transcontinental Realty (TCI), down 4.3%, and BRASILAGRO - CIA Bras de Prop Agricolas (LND), down 4%, were all laggards within the real estate industry with DDR (DDR) being today's real estate industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the real estate industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate (IYR) while those bearish on the real estate industry could consider ProShares Short Real Estate Fund (REK).
