The current environment presents attractive opportunities to purchase our target assets, allowing us to efficiently invest the new capital. In the second quarter we saw a negative impact to our book value from the decline in rates on our interest rate swap hedges. We are pleased with the prepayment and credit performance of our assets, and believe our strategy of protecting net interest income for the long run is the appropriate approach in today’s environment.”
