  • Average "at risk" leverage of 7.1x vs. 7.2x in Q1.
  • CIO Kain takes a victory lap: "Our results this quarter were bolstered by several important strategic decisions ... Most important was our decision to maintain our leverage as we believed the supply and demand outlook for agency MBS was very positive despite the tapering of Fed purchases."

The company has a conference call scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m. eastern to discuss its earnings.
