Stephen Scouten

been, second-quarter said ratio if the you am guys or think that expense, given we at wondering but can about no similar how longer-term, on efficiency and the basis, you all appreciably guidance as what migrations that know longer-term it for than maybe of profitability Is I question recent have of to could kind that business said it of ratio or all efficiency about in Or the think a if business from refinancing holistically otherwise? whatnot. like perspective, or as has you year, rightsizing mortgage looks maybe maybe an around guidance quarters from be just that's these does rest I about possible? ask that to need think you lower I efforts what

Chris Holmes

Typically, so so probably efficiency Stephen we've group business. of in answer our low in XX% that ratio will that terms or one. targeted

particularly because said environment still long want get to, for some makes not hard we a we're ongoing. guidance, rightsizing got So in giving And this, it's just Anytime those term right we when current don't that now Michael markets because unpredictable. it's like it's target. that's the that you not it

relate have we more as so And will we it. information,

basis. do mortgage the factor will coming from to least an servicing fair say don't we But also the think at in much I the that quarter we have in there. think it's be rights on previous operating different materially quarter

the directions. to moving going continue of than it's So in I of that do in segment, segment even. hit in mentioned, see -- we some some value other technology quicker to potential got things probably that And because hit it long-term, that and of banking you've as both innovation segments the we particularly

in So, it to lot And of then those a we're hit conversations. participating and that has continue hit. will

Stephen Scouten

and showing you think the in of significant tangible you Great. think I some higher have do that noted how growth the you the excess that Okay. value about aggressively amount. excess benefit that have guys you taken book. haven't still short-term guys showed deploying per actually extended any more all into counted investments? liquidity appreciate you share, liquidity duration Chris, about adjusted And a book maybe how know really you then, true a some securities tangible but I different And camp today? really for additional the higher, I moved There's to rates earnings. that for guys And But now do liked

Chris Holmes

on important it's closely -- We us. about a that's metric the Yeah, whether about -- your talked appreciate tangible all for results. comment one, it's obviously track and we time I it constant conversation, book. it in We an talked it our and

We we're if balance our constant about us. ever for anything a also it It's topic on sheet. talked thinking about doing

tangible it as to think we we like about losses, about think dilution And about as take and that want value. owners book term. get -- we're as this think the long so to we just investments, the we I on about think it and think characterize don't we and -- we about AOCI, And loads

move want to didn't so we to help maturity. a And

to of But deploy get also, remember, right for the surgical additions we've in portfolio some deposit. period our about thinking think the are We opportunities when we extended an been we camp on that. to

currently. liquidity it think could think We is of faster, a up hear liquidity the there's most While I -- marketplace. dry what lot I of in the than

Just think prevailing I opinion. what others from are

today but we'll because And comments notice, and can faster think. generally liquidity fund because some about than We when more just were to about Also little do probably sure everything as we today, then careful that than on we're grow a want can no typically and we make talking certainly we so cautious do. we more that different that think could than we're become deposits. probably liquidity. think also so much of we're long-term for and our deposits, we more low side us. bad non-interest a bearing assets valuable we of And don't We on that's think up to growing don't -- all non-interest liquidity for most those the forms want deposits, tied bad we and because talking yielding focused get shareholders. one, on it's those other in we're bearing It's fast as liquidity us

So some as we was say, the as wouldn't could that in a Michael to of make long we answer increases assets. XX% go surgical since with said, portfolio, probably

So Michael?

experienced Brett, to so our decrease. remember, on It's already mark-to-market $X.XX Starting the with sale we question, went $X.XX. a if in I value, gain we've from

in reflective on that applies would naturally of so key that to And first gain where and will were on the bring the quarter. down. That XX margins be sale more income down, segment,

than would say applies So a always mark-to-market look term, say business be or your goal I on would But the gain on to will again higher mark-to-market. through bit impact sale I point. longer And in generally, typically next the number throughout the that value will I profitable That's down. the little and revenue us, quarter, execution. would the come cycles. yes,

to and the we'll shareholders. necessary capital positive profitable So make to on adjustments our be return
