Quoting Management: Ronald E.

Our net interest margin increased 42 basis points in the second quarter to 2.14% and we reduced our portfolio of wholesale borrowings as part of the Restructuring Transaction to improve our interest rate risk profile. Additionally, during the second quarter of 2011, we modified $4.0 billion of putable borrowings to eliminate the put option and further reduced our interest rate risk. With the first quarter Restructuring Transaction behind us, we are now looking ahead to opportunities to increase our mortgage market share.”
The company has now topped analyst estimates for the last three quarters. It beat the mark by one cent in the first quarter and by 3 cents in the fourth quarter of the last fiscal year.
