some we I last think looking November, it's rates. a go Doug. I year good to swap at really If question, in was back

XX-year higher, year, we in a X%. when rates swap just to X.XX%, swaps sense. XX-year on at November you go around we last going give significantly are were or take Today on thought Sometime rates swaps give paid to

So had fairly I protected. and we rates, think rally in are a have the massive portfolios well overall,

$XXX The other have MSRs, negative point out the marks thing to portfolio a overall still, our that today, want we in taking of MSR gain million. our I in year-to-date, despite fact

this So a have just going like those are themselves, yields negative to it's guess, person if hard I rally. to of to markets Fed of believe the we for debt are.

My first follow-up the acquisitions. on MSR a just question,

are? Just it the those regulatory just function a banks Or prepayments to headwinds? or are ahead And profiles seller wave potentially? Is wondering who kind funds? of it of get mostly of is of looking

Michael Nierenberg

few was we're not for It's part of was been banking sure. that But a most community one in the more general, different more I fund. but the the or a our we this can In of and banks. sellers, really services more having is we them say, they've what mortgage the where in a selling but that part. ancillary X billion, environment, growing theory yes, There But again, with could strategic really it's the other return what X bulky not was, customer would assets, for billion And of revenue. seen other our acquire nature. from haven't it's then ton happen, that is And MSR answer the where just products asset, to customers base. the only X.X do billion, and of

Timothy Hayes

you what any are this are? -- year. not then any CPRs or valuation other cuts September? August and maybe what does how cut of the impact rate in think can clarify could second that just reflect assumptions MSR assume the there's What the currently before time expectations could that look I'm the potential are? wondering Okay. just week Understood. I these potentially rate And end My valuation like in your going forward. you the reflected question,

Michael Nierenberg


we I at any of look asset, look all, rates. think, first at buying buying forward when we

assumptions. make to have We

to negative out long, As having yield. see actually having the going hard this CPRs XX% person being we're at rate I long we debt we if the capacity but issue. I speeds, earlier, slower than income time, global to think believe is footprint When I in what believe do for two of where for Speeds forever, quarter, we are, look I a pointed fixed environment at a we're to look thought. and overall markets an initially the be

Going to home not through late that we we or should once get into home that about this, think buying as robust. your you CPRs seasonality and August little numbers have we winter the been off where bit, the new September, fall, as the a going you're months probably forward, July, do particularly come go in have have increases buying

speeds Speeds actually on. for I origination, think point we to and two this we're about expect we that's CPRs see own that where the increase. speeds. an it, we slower than are and that it rate The for is in capacity market model the So our at thought we business, something way working issue our were quarter in

see. So we'll

Timothy Hayes

Okay. income have Got in it. on gain than sale better And would then operating quarter. would gotten this G&A quarter. increased maybe you I have significantly thought more seasonally stronger leverage a

ramp-up in mortgage you in -- lenders brought if to Just improve general, the just Or some expect there on. profitability bank wondering with forward? new do was you at going

Michael Nierenberg


in in the I'm will somebody of gain on as we clearly this up published That's going agency the are looking year-over-year. we at numbers. have I'd something that non-QM we'd our you're -- have grow on be the products, than G&A seeing was gain that and NewRez. business operating see have on sale our overall, business. some the at XX% operating morning to smaller back are that large to to think we a -- -- sale -- origination I or Shellpoint expenses But I not come the you something to

And Sure. I'll the in queue. one me more and then from just back Sure.

basically As the in said the I'm letting patch week, sure QM out late came you and expire they're Mike, XXXX. saw CFPB last

wondering being comes what the you, this? were that to around at for if NewRez? might thoughts your surprise If case? it up Just end all as if you what a opportunity so, bring think And

Michael Nierenberg


it to our government model assuming will I as not, all we forward don't think current as in think I tries or sense market. be footprint stuff, moves all I back of to Whether stays this a of business mortgage beneficial the happens administration the from in go know. the these likely intact, step their really
