Residential Mortgage REITs in the second quarter are generally likely to continue seeing results more or less in line with the prior one despite a somewhat volatile operating environment between April and June, according to some analysts.

Keefe, Bruyette & Woods (KBW) analysts noted in pre-results commentary Wednesday that all the agency MBS REITs have indicated their dividends are flat or up for the quarter. (KBW’s disclosures indicate it has had or expects to have business dealings with at least five of the 11 REITs it discusses in its report: Annaly and its Chimera affiliate, Capstead, Hatteras and Invesco.)
