Capstead Mortgage Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2020 Results

·15 min read

Capstead Mortgage Corporation ("Capstead" or the "Company") (NYSE: CMO) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Summary

  • Recognized GAAP net income of $22.7 million or $0.19 per diluted common share

  • Generated core earnings of $21.9 million or $0.18 per diluted common share, representing a 2.7% return on common equity capital (10.8% annualized)

  • Generated economic return of 14.3%

  • Paid a second quarter dividend of $0.15 per common share, unchanged from the previous two quarters

  • Book value per common share increased $0.72 or 11.9% to $6.79 per common share

  • Agency-guaranteed residential adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) portfolio ended the quarter largely unchanged at $8.33 billion

  • Leverage ended the quarter at 7.49 times long-term investment capital

Second Quarter Earnings and Related Discussion

Capstead reported GAAP net income of $22.7 million or $0.19 per diluted common share for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to a net loss of $204.7 million or $(2.21) per diluted common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The Company reported core earnings of $21.9 million or $0.18 per diluted common share for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. This compares to core earnings of $19.8 million or $0.16 per diluted common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. See the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section of this release for more information on core earnings.

Portfolio yields averaged 2.33% during the second quarter of 2020, a decrease of 16 basis points from 2.49% reported for the first quarter of 2020. Yields declined primarily due to lower coupon interest rates on loans underlying the Company’s portfolio of agency-guaranteed residential ARM securities that have reset based on lower prevailing interest rates as well as lower coupons on acquisitions and changes in portfolio composition due to late first quarter sales. Mortgage prepayments increased during the quarter to an average annualized constant prepayment rate ("CPR") of 32.89%, compared to 26.71% CPR in the prior quarter. Portfolio leverage was reduced to 7.49 to one at June 30, 2020 compared to 8.51 to one at March 31, 2020.

The following table illustrates the progression of Capstead’s portfolio of residential mortgage investments for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2020 (dollars in thousands):

Portfolio sales that settled during the second quarter of 2020 were entered into during the first quarter and all realized losses associated with these sales were recognized during the first quarter.

Rates on Capstead’s secured borrowings, after adjusting for hedging activities, averaged 63 basis points lower at 1.09% during the second quarter of 2020, compared to 1.72% for the prior quarter. Borrowing rates before hedging activities averaged 0.68% during the second quarter, a decline of 108 basis points over the prior quarter benefiting from the Federal Reserve’s actions on March 3rd and again on March 15th to reduce the Fed Funds rate by a total of 150 basis points. Unhedged borrowing rates on new borrowings under repurchase arrangements are now approximately 25 basis points. Secured borrowings ended the quarter at $7.58 billion.

Notional amounts of secured borrowings-related interest rate swap agreements averaged $4.37 billion during the second quarter of 2020 with fixed swap rates averaging 1.38%, 24 basis points lower than the prior quarter. At June 30, 2020, the Company held $4.60 billion notional amount of secured borrowings-related interest rate swaps with fixed rates averaging 1.27%, an increase of $200 million in notional amount and a decrease of 17 basis points in rate from swaps held on March 31, 2020. Two-year swaps entered into recently have fixed rates of approximately one to two basis points reflecting market expectations for a prolonged period of low short-term interest rates.

Capstead operates a highly efficient, internally-managed investment platform, particularly compared to other mortgage REITs, and has a competitive cost structure relative to a wide variety of high yielding investment vehicles. Operating costs expressed as an annualized percentage of long-term investment capital averaged 1.45% and 1.32% for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2020. As an annualized percentage of total assets, operating costs averaged 0.16% and 0.14% during these periods.

Book Value per Common Share

Book value per share as of June 30, 2020 was $6.79, an increase of $0.72 or 11.8% from the March 31, 2020 book value of $6.07, primarily driven by $0.67 in portfolio-related increases in value. Capstead’s investment strategy attempts to mitigate risks to book value by focusing on investments in agency-guaranteed residential mortgage pass-through securities, which are considered to have little, if any, credit risk and are collateralized by ARM loans with interest rates that reset periodically to more current levels. Because of these characteristics, the fair value of the Company’s portfolio is expected to be less vulnerable to significant pricing declines caused by credit concerns or rising interest rates compared to leveraged portfolios containing a significant amount of non-agency-guaranteed securities or agency-guaranteed securities backed by longer-duration fixed-rate loans. Fair value is impacted by market conditions, including changes in interest rates and the availability of financing at reasonable rates and leverage levels.

Management Remarks

Commenting on current operating and market conditions, Phillip A. Reinsch, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased with our results this quarter after the pandemic-related disruptions experienced in the fixed income markets in March. Utilizing less leverage and holding a smaller investment portfolio, we generated core earnings well in excess of our common dividend, which we have held steady now for three quarters. We expect this achievement to be largely unmatched in our industry in this environment. Importantly, we enjoyed strong improvement in portfolio valuations this quarter, leading to an 11.9% increase in book value to $6.79 per common share. We expect these results will also compare favorably with those of our industry peers.

"We began reinvesting portfolio runoff in late April and replaced all of May and June runoff at very attractive levels. While pricing levels for agency-guaranteed ARM securities have increased steadily through quarter end, we expect to continue replacing runoff in the coming quarters provided risk-adjusted returns remain attractive. With borrowing costs declining markedly in the second quarter due largely to the Federal Reserve’s March actions to reduce the Fed Funds rate target range to zero to 25 basis points, portfolio returns have improved considerably despite higher levels of mortgage prepayments spurred by lower prevailing mortgage interest rates. We anticipate mortgage prepayments to remain elevated for the rest of the year, particularly through the end of the summer selling season. Our borrowing costs on the other hand should continue declining sequentially as existing borrowings and related swaps held for hedging purposes mature and are replaced at lower levels.

"Over the next few years, we anticipate the Federal Reserve will remain supportive of low short-term interest rates, while eventually reducing support for longer term rates by curtailing U.S Treasury and agency-guaranteed fixed-rate MBS purchases. As this occurs the yield curve should steepen further, improving short duration investment options, lowering mortgage prepayment levels and increasing portfolio yields, while our borrowing costs should remain relatively low.

"For the last 20 years, Capstead has operated as a cost-effective, internally managed REIT that invests in a leveraged portfolio of relatively short duration agency-guaranteed residential ARM securities with the goal of generating attractive risk-adjusted returns over the long-term. For investors seeking risk-adjusted levered returns with a comparably higher degree of safety from interest rate and credit risk, we believe Capstead represents a reasonably compelling opportunity that is difficult to find elsewhere in the markets."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management believes the presentation of core earnings and core earnings per common share, both non-GAAP financial measures, when analyzed in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP operating results, allows investors to more effectively evaluate the Company’s performance and provides investors management’s view of the Company’s economic performance. Management also believes that presenting financing spreads on residential mortgage investments, a non-GAAP financial measure, provides important information for evaluating the performance of the Company’s portfolio, as opposed to total financing spreads, because the non-GAAP measure speaks specifically to the performance of the Company’s investment portfolio. See the "Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures" section of this release.

(a)

Unrealized gains and losses on residential mortgage securities classified as available-for-sale are recorded as a component of AOCI. Residential mortgage securities classified as held-to-maturity with a cost basis of $922,000 and unsecuritized investments in residential mortgage loans with a cost basis of $531,000 are not subject to fair value accounting and therefore have been excluded from this analysis. Capstead segregates its residential ARM securities based on the average length of time until the loans underlying each security reset to more current rates.

(b)

Unrealized Gains (Losses) are amounts included in AOCI related to these positions as of the indicated dates. The following reflects Capstead’s secured borrowings-related swap positions, sorted by quarter of swap contract expiration. Average fixed rates reflect related fixed-rate payment requirements.

In addition to the effects on fixed swap rates of the Fed’s 150 basis point reductions to the Fed Funds rate in March, thus far in 2020 the Company has entered into only OIS-based swaps. After consideration of secured borrowings-related derivative instruments, Capstead’s residential mortgage investments and secured borrowings had durations as of June 30, 2020 of approximately 14 months and nine months, respectively, for a net duration gap of approximately five months. Duration is a measure of market price sensitivity to changes in interest rates. A shorter duration generally indicates less interest rate risk.

Gross WAC (rate paid by borrowers)(d)

(a)

Amortized cost basis represents the Company’s investment (unpaid principal balance plus unamortized investment premiums) before unrealized gains and losses. At June 30, 2020, the ratio of amortized cost basis to unpaid principal balance for the Company’s ARM holdings was 103.07. This table excludes approximately $1.0 million in fixed-rate agency-guaranteed mortgage pass-through securities and residential mortgage loans as well as private residential mortgage pass-through securities held as collateral for structured financings.

(b)

Net WAC, or weighted average coupon, is the weighted average interest rate of the mortgage loans underlying the indicated investments, net of servicing and other fees as of the indicated date. Net WAC is expressed as a percentage calculated on an annualized basis on the unpaid principal balances of the mortgage loans underlying these investments. As such, it is similar to the cash yield on the portfolio which is calculated using amortized cost basis. Fully indexed WAC represents the weighted average coupon upon one or more resets using interest rate indices and net margins as of the indicated date. Average net margins represent the weighted average levels over the underlying indices that the portfolio can adjust to upon reset, usually subject to initial, periodic and/or lifetime caps on the amount of such adjustments during any single interest rate adjustment period and over the contractual term of the underlying loans. ARM securities with initial fixed-rate periods of five years or longer typically have either 200 or 500 basis point initial caps with 200 basis point periodic caps. Additionally, certain ARM securities held by the Company are subject only to lifetime caps or are not subject to a cap. For presentation purposes, average periodic caps in the table above reflect initial caps until after an ARM security has reached its initial reset date and lifetime caps, less the current net WAC, for ARM securities subject only to lifetime caps. At quarter-end, 67% of current-reset ARMs were subject to periodic caps averaging 1.90%; 24% were subject to initial caps averaging 2.97%; and 8% were subject to lifetime caps averaging 7.01%.

(c)

Capstead classifies its ARM securities based on the average length of time until the loans underlying each security reset to more current rates ("months-to-roll") (less than 18 months for "current-reset" ARM securities, and 18 months or greater for "longer-to-reset" ARM securities). After consideration of any applicable initial fixed-rate periods, at June 30, 2020 approximately 90%, 5% and 3% of the Company’s ARM securities were backed by mortgage loans that reset annually, semi-annually and monthly, respectively, while approximately 2% reset every five years. Approximately 76% of the Company’s current-reset ARM securities have reached an initial coupon reset date.

(d)

Gross WAC is the weighted average interest rate of the mortgage loans underlying the indicated investments, including servicing and other fees paid by borrowers, as of the indicated balance sheet date.
