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

Guru Investment Theses on Redwood Trust Inc

Wallace Weitz Comments on Redwood Trust - Jul 15, 2013

Redwood Trust (RWT--$17)(RWT) We have owned Redwood shares since its founding in 1993. Redwood is a “value investor” in the residential and commercial mortgage markets. We know management well and trust their judgment. The mortgage market was rocked by the recent bond market commotion, but Redwood ought to be able to continue to build its business. Redwood’s current dividend yield is 7.5% and we would expect the company to raise its dividend over time.

From Wallace Weitz’s second quarter 2013 letter to shareholders.

Redwood Trust Inc was incorporated in the State of Maryland on April 11, 1994, and commenced operations on August 19, 1994. The Company, together with its subsidiaries, is an internally-managed specialty finance company focused on engaging in residential and commercial mortgage banking activities and investing in mortgage- and other real estate-related assets.

This segment also includes mortgage servicing rights (MSRs) associated with residential loans securitized through Sequoia program and MSRs purchased from third parties. The commercial mortgage banking and investments segment consists of commercial mortgage banking operations as well as its portfolio of held-for-investment commercial real estate loans. It operates as a commercial real estate lender by originating mortgage loans and providing other forms of commercial real estate financing. The Company is subject to competition in seeking investments, originating commercial loans, acquiring residential loans for securitization, engaging in securitization transactions, selling loans, and in other aspects of its business.
