Business Description

Industry: REITs » REIT - Diversified
Compare:PPS, EQR, AVB, AGNC, AIV » details
Traded in other countries:CY5.Germany,
CYS Investments Inc, formerly known as Cypress Sharpridge Investments was formed as a Maryland corporation on January 3, 2006, commenced operations in February 2006 and completed an initial public offering of its common stock in June 2009. It is a specialty finance company that was created with the objective of achieving consistent risk-adjusted investment income. The Company invests in Agency RMBS collateralized by fixed rate single-family residential mortgage loans (primarily 10, 15, 20 or 30 years), ARMs, which have coupon rates that reset monthly, or hybrid ARMs, which have a coupon rate that is fixed for an initial period (typically three, five, seven or 10 years) and thereafter resets at regular intervals. It makes investment decisions based on various factors, including, but not limited to, relative value, expected cash yield, supply and demand, costs of hedging, costs of financing, liquidity, expected future interest rate volatility and the overall shape of the U.S. Treasury and interest rate swap yield curves. The Company sources the majority of its investments through relationships with a large and diverse group of financial intermediaries, ranging from major commercial and investment banks to specialty investment dealers and brokerage firms. Agency RMBS are residential mortgage pass-through securities. Its current portfolio of Agency RMBS is backed by fixed rate mortgages and hybrid ARMs that typically have a fixed coupon for three, five, seven or 10 years, and then pay an adjustable coupon that generally resets annually over a predetermined interest rate index. The Company competes with mortgage REITs, mortgage finance and specialty finance companies, savings and loan associations, banks, mortgage bankers, insurance companies, mutual funds, institutional investors, investment banking firms, other lenders, governmental bodies and other entities.
