Two Harbors Investment Corp. (NYSE: TWO), a real estate investment trust that invests in residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), residential mortgage loans, mortgage servicing rights (MSR) and other financial assets, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Highlights

  • Book value was $11.09 per diluted common share, representing a 6.0% (1) total return on book value, after accounting for a dividend of $0.26 per share, bringing the total return on book value for the first half of 2014 to 9.9%. (2)
