The GSE's market-related impact was near zero, compared to a $0.6 billion loss in the prior quarter.

Additionally, the GSE expects to deliver a $1.7 billion dividend to the U.S. Treasury by June 2019; increasing its cumulative payments to date to a total to $118 billion.

The GSE said that its return on conservatorship capital improved to 12.7% based on higher earnings and lower conservatorship capital compared to the prior quarter.
