••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Arlington Asset Investment Corp., is a Virginia corporation. The Company is an investment firm that acquires and holds mortgage-related and other assets. It acquires residential mortgage-backed securities (MBS), either issued by U.S. government agencies or guaranteed as to principal and interest by U.S. government agencies or U.S. government-sponsored entities. The Company operates mainly in the United States. It manages its portfolio of mortgage holdings with the goal of obtaining a high risk-adjusted return on capital. Historically, based on market conditions, it believes its MBS assets have provided it with higher relative risk-adjusted rates of return than most other portfolio opportunities it has evaluated. The Company is subject to examination by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and other taxing authorities in jurisdictions where the Company has significant business operations, such as Virginia.
