    I was wondering how the $0.41 eps loss reconcile with this latest:

     

    American Capital beats estimates; grows book value

     

    Economic net income of $1.18 per share, with $0.71 net spread of dollar roll income vs. expectations of $0.68. Q1 dividend was $0.65.
    Book value per share of $24.49 and $0.65 dividend is up from $23.93 at the end of last year.

    The loss of $0.41 is meaningless as it doesnt take into account mark-to-market like the economic net income does. You should only look at economic net income as that truly reflects all changes in values whether they be unrealized or relaized gains/losses.
