Big move for Ellington continues

  • Ellington Residential Mortgage (EARN +1.3%) follows through on yesterday's late-day surge, with earnings set to be released tomorrow morning.
  • David Schawel speculates book value could come in north of $18 per share (after the big run, the stock is currently at $16.21).
  • Pine River Capital (the managers of Two Harbors TWO, and investors in a number of other REITs) disclosed a 5.5% stake in EARN on Friday.
  • EARN (a REIT) is managed by the same group who runs Ellington Financial (EFC, a partnership/hedge fund). EFC - which reported its Q2 last week - thus far has navigated its way through the MBS rout as well as anyone.

    Are you kidding -- EFC has done a phenomenal job that is vastly superior to anyone in this space.
