I would now like to introduce Mr. Lloyd McAdams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Anworth. Please go ahead, sir.Lloyd McAdams Andrew, thank you very much and good day, ladies and gentlemen. I am Lloyd McAdams and I welcome you to this conference call. We will summarize the company’s recent activities and most importantly answer your questions about the past and future during our question-and-answer session, which immediately follows these brief remarks. During the second quarter of 2012, Anworth earned net income to common stockholders of $24.4 million, which is $0.18 per diluted share, based on the weighted average of 141.3 million fully diluted shares outstanding during the quarter. Before our question-and-answer period of course, I would like to get into the information about our balance sheet and also provide some information about the portfolio characteristics in mortgage-backed securities, but first the balance sheet. Anworth’s portfolio of agency mortgage-backed securities at its fair value at quarter-end was approximately $9.15 billion. Stockholders equity available to common stockholders of Anworth at quarter-end was approximately $993 million with $7.19 per share based on 138.1 million shares of common stock outstanding as of June 30th. This represents an increase of $7.17 book value at March 31, 2012. Floating fixed rate interest rate swaps were $3.18 billion which represents approximately 41% of our repo balance. If the purposes of making this percentage of repo balance calculation, we were to eliminate the amount of repurchase agreements which finance our portfolio of ARMs which we set within one year which have reduced interest rate sensitivity and do not requires significant hedging, this ratio increases from 41% to approximately 56%. While the size of our swap position is a significant component of our balance sheet, I believe that its positions average remaining term of  months is more significant. Management’s current decision about this size and the term of the swap position are the important determinants of our current return on equity and therefore a dividend payout.
