Spin-Off REIT New Residential Investment Hits The Mortgage Sector From A Different Angle

On May 16, 2013 real estate investment trust Newcastle Investment Corp. (NYSE:NCT) spun off the company's residential mortgage related assets into a new REIT: New Residential Investment Corp. (NYSE:NRZ). New Residential will focus on the ground-breaking excess mortgage servicing rights market that Newcastle first invested in starting in mid-2012. With the excess MSR investments and some other very positive investment results, Newcastle was able to provide 100% plus return to investors from late summer of 2012 until the company was split-up last month. This article will cover some background and reasons why investors can expect superior REIT results from New Residential Investment.
