    • The 10-year yield has plunged all the way down to 1.94% and one would figure on some nice increases in book value for the mortgage REITs (REM -0.1%), but on the flip side are narrowing interest rate spreads (especially as the Fed still seems to be intent on hiking short rates), and what hedging losses the companies are taking.

    • Individual names: Annaly Capital (NLY +0.4%), American Capital Agency (AGNC), Armour Residential (ARR -1%), CYS Investments (CYS -0.2%), Invesco Mortgage (IVZ -2.7%), New York Mortgage Trust (NYMT -0.5%), Hatteras Financial (HTS -0.3%), Western Asset Mortgage (WMC -2.7%), Ellington Residential (EARN -0.4%), Javelin Mortgage (JMI -3%).

    • "ETFs are attractive to investors in part because of their tax efficient structure, and Schwab (NYSE:SCHW) ETFs have delivered on this expectation for the past five years, with no distributed capital gains since the first Schwab ETFs launched in 2009," says SVP John Sturiale, taking a victory lap.
    • Schwab's announcement comes days after ProShares said it expects none of its 130 ETFs to distribute capital gains, and Invesco's (NYSE:IVZ) PowerShares said nine of its 116 ETFs will distribute.
    • Seven large ETF providers have now declared, and just 74 of 712 funds will issue capital gains distributions.
    • For Schwab, it has 21 ETFs with $25.9B in AUM.

    • The PowerShares DB Optimum Yield Diversified Commodity Strategy Portfolio (NASDAQ:PDBC) offers broad commodity futures contracts through a Cayman Islands-based unit, which allows its investors to avoid K-1 tax forms.
    • This is a key feature to the fund; K-1 forms can be a burden for investors as they potentially delay filings and may require investors to report and pay taxes on gains annually, even if the security has not been sold.
    • "PDBC provides broad and efficient exposure to commodities with the added benefit of eliminating Scheduled K-1 requirements," said Lorraine Wang, Invesco PowerShares Head of Global ETF Products & Research, in a press release.
    • This is the 4th actively managed ETF from Invesco (NYSE:IVZ), which now offers 165 funds for investors.

    • While the probe into whether Pimco juiced the returns of its Total Return ETF highlights the boosted regulatory scrutiny the entire asset management industry faces, it nevertheless offers an opportunity for Pimco's rivals to pick up market share, says Citi's William Katz.
    • "First order beneficiaries," says Katz, are BlackRock (BLK +0.6%), AllianceBernstein (AB -0.3%), and Legg Mason (LM -0.1%), followed by Franklin Resources (BEN +0.7%) and Invesco (IVZ). He's quick to point out the gains should be marginal and general industry pressure on fixed income likely looms more important. One who should escape heightened regulatory oversight is WisdomTree (WETF +0.2%) thanks to its minor fixed income business.
