How will Newcastle's (NCT) spinoff of New Residential (ticker: NRZ) unlock value (presentation)? Newcastle's stock yielded an average 12% in 2012, while peers with comparable portfolios to NRZ yield about 7%. Those with portfolios close to the new Newcastle also have far lower yields. It's yahtzee for NCT and NRZ owners should these yields converge. The spinoff is expected by the end of Q1.

    Well, many spin-offs turn profitable to shareholders. Theory is that value can be better understood as separate concentrated entities.

    Yes, average.


    Shares were at about $5.50 at start of year w/$0.20 dividend, a 14.5% yield. They were $6.50 mid-year, 12.3% yield. They were $8.46 at year's end w/$0.22 dividend, a 10.4% yield.


    I'd say the company saying it had an average 12% yield in 2012 is right on target.
