  • CYS Dividend Coverage Is Expected To Improve But Higher Hedges Remain A Concern [View article]
    Cancelable swaps could be terminated after one year with no cost, if the interest rate falls in the future. So I believe if they are not terminated they continues to act as a hedging instrument. Furthermore, I believe the multiple of 0.83x is justified for the stock and it is not undervalued.
    The table below shows fair values of the different asset classes in second and fourth quarter. It gives you the idea of the change in portfolio allocation. The numbers below are in millions. The lower duration gap means the lower interest rate risk but it does not mean that the company’s book value is completely immune from the rise in interest rates.
    Fourth Quarter
    15 year MBS 7,305
    20 year MBS 74
    30 year MBS 5,342
    Hybrid ARM 1,731
    U.S. treasuries 149

    Second Quarter
    15 year MBS 6,368
    20 year MBS 82
    30 year MBS 3,725
    Hybrid ARM 1,970
    U.S. treasuries 2,050

  • Update: AT&T's Move To Acquire NII Holdings Could Backfire [View article]
    I am bullish on the company but do not feel the same about T's entering into the Mexican wireless market. This article only talks about the acquisition of NII Holdings. Furthermore, I believe T will continue to add solid postpaid net adds in the fourth quarter and maintain its lower churn.
