Invesco Mortgage reports Q2 core EPS 41c, consensus 44c
Reports Q2 book value per common share of $17.06. "We are pleased to announce core earnings of $0.41 per share for the second quarter, an economic return of 1.9% for the quarter, and continued book value stability. Despite the rise in interest rates, a flattening yield curve and further Federal Reserve balance sheet reduction in the quarter, we continued to benefit from our diversified investment strategy. Credit spreads have remained in a relatively narrow range in the current market environment, even as Agency RMBS spreads weakened. While our decline in core earnings was substantially attributable to a higher cost of funds, our disciplined approach to actively maintaining our equity duration target helped mitigate the pressure from headwinds during the second quarter," said John Anzalone, Chief Executive Officer. "We remain confident about our ability to capture attractive returns in Agency RMBS and CMBS."
