Newcastle Investment (NCT +2.9%) regains all and more of its big decline following last Wednesday's secondary offering. The company is the latest in a series (I, II, III, to name a few) of mortgage REITs issuing shares at prices well above book value. The firms take these proceeds and invest them in higher-yielding assets - the result being increased book value.
