    feb numbers were great

    no question, but stock lingers, no surprise given the massive dilution, they essentially doubled the share count, great for keeping the company alive, but it puts a lid on their stock price for years.

      Private-mortgage insurer MGIC Investment Corp.'s (MTG) inventory of delinquent loans declined in February from the previous month.
      MGIC is the largest mortgage insurer for Freddie Mac (FMCC) and sister mortgage-finance company Fannie Mae (FNMA). Mortgage insurers cover potential lender losses on loans typically given to borrowers who can't come up with a 20% down payment for their home purchases.
      MGIC's primary delinquent inventory of loans fell 3.4% to 133,125 in February from January. Primary new insurance written fell 14% to $1.9 billion .
      Separately on Friday, Standard & Poor's Rating Services raised its rating on MGIC's insurance unit to B from B-minus, leaving it five steps deep into junk territory. The outlook is stable.
      S&P pointed to MGIC's recent capital raising plan to issue 135 million shares of common equity and $450 million of senior convertible notes due in 2020. It said if the 15% share issue and $50 million note issue overallotments are fully exercised, the combined offering will provide more than $1.2 billion in additional capital.
      "The extent of the capital raise mitigates, if not eliminates, our concerns in the near term regarding a regulatory take-over of the company," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ron Joas .
      In February, MGIC said its fourth-quarter loss widened as the private-mortgage insurer's results were dragged down by a one-time settlement charge.
