LONDON, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Federal Reserve, last year, announced a third round of quantitative easing
under which it committed to buy $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities each
month until there is a sustained recovery in the labor market. The Fed's
aggressive bond buying program has helped in bringing down mortgage rates to
record low levels, and boosted mortgage lending activity. This has benefited
mortgage servicers such as Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc. (NYSE: NSM) and
Doral Financial Corp. (NYSE: DRL). While record low mortgage rates have
boosted lending activity, they also pose significant challenge to companies
such as KKR Financial Holdings LLC (NYSE: KFN), and Western Asset Mortgage
Capital Corp. (NYSE: WMC), which invest in mortgage-backed securities. Shares
of mortgage investment companies ended on a mixed note on Thursday as the
broad market struggled following some weak economic data and earnings reports.
