    Commercial Finance - RSO invested $37.8 million in European CLO equity during the first quarter of 2014 and expects to make a 21% IRR on this investment. The Company also made $58.2 million of loan commitments since January 1, 2014 in middle market loans and has already funded $41.2 million of those commitments. In addition, the Company made $23.6 million of new investments during the first quarter of 2014 in one of the remaining leveraged loan vehicles, Apidos Cinco.
    Jonathan Cohen, President and CEO of Resource Capital Corp. said, "During the first quarter of 2014, Resource Capital Corp. made over $300 million of high quality, diversified investments. Our pipeline is very strong and we hope to increase those investment levels sequentially through the year. Our core CRE loan originations are running at a significantly higher rate than a year ago and some of our newer initiatives, such as our middle market corporate lending are already beginning to make a meaningful contribution, which we expect to grow."

  • From their press release ..

    Commercial Real Estate - The Company originated five new commercial real estate ("CRE") loans totaling approximately $116.8 million, including future funding commitments, and also funded $3.7 million on existing commitments during the quarter. These originations reflect a 76% increase over the same period in 2013. The Company currently has seven new loans in process totaling $108.2 million, including three loans which the Company anticipates will close within the next two weeks totaling $42.7 million. In addition, RSO currently has applications issued on another six new loans totaling $240.2 million and has an ongoing pipeline of new CRE loan opportunities (in various stages of negotiation and underwriting) of new whole loans representing over $650 million of potential investments. Given the pace of originations, the Company expects to complete a second securitization in the near term.
    The Company also purchased $40.8 million par value of CMBS during the quarter. In addition, in March, the Company's joint venture with an institutional partner sold a multifamily property in Washington D.C., which it had acquired in 2011. The Company realized a gain of $866,000 in the first quarter for its 5% interest in the venture.

    Volitility with markets moving down bring investors to income stocks. No news from CYS currently, however earnings call for the quarter ending 12/31/13 scheduled for 2/11/14. Welcome to all the new investors of CYS. Current yield over 15%. Can't wait to see that yield % come down. They have been meeting expectations. Listen to the quarterly CC from the previous quarter. They were in the process of adjusting their portfolio to match the expected changes derived from quantitative easing expectations. My patience is being rewarded this morning, as the pps looks like the reaction to a great quarter closing out 2013. $8.28 this morning. Will it pull back? 10 days until quarterly earnings announcement, so maybe unless there has been a leak. Could that be? GLTA
