Mortgage REITs have been successful in the past as the cost to borrow money to buy bonds and securities have been far less than the yields they receive. But there have been some concerns regarding the current spread REITs earn on their purchases. As the Federal Reserve has pledged to keep interest rates near-zero till at least mid-2015, yields of bonds and mortgage backed securities have been pressured lower. The yield on the Barclays U.S. MBS Conventional 30 Year Index has fallen from 2.9 percent, in January, to 2.4 percent. "The spread between yields and funding is abnormally low," says Sean Kelleher, president of Shay Asset Management.
