More on Capstead Mortgage (CMO) Q4 earnings: Net interest margin declines 17 bps to a barely visible 1.13%. The 2.2% fall in book value may not bode well for fixed-rate agency REITs. Company repurchased $35M worth of shares in Q4 after $100M authorization on Oct. 30. "We expect 2013 results will be more stable," says Capstead, noting most of the mortgages it holds have rates below prevailing fixed mortgage rates. Shares -0.4% AH.
