Invesco Mortgage Capital and CYS Investments to See Uptick in Net Interest Income

The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Invesco Mortgage Capital & CYS Investments

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 15, 2011) - For roughly three years, the central bank has kept overnight interest rates near zero as unemployment remains relatively high and housing issues persist. While high yielding REITs such as Invesco Mortgage Capital & CYS Investments have benefitted from the low interest rate environment, some industry players saw their profits drop last quarter as gains in net interest income were offset by lower investment income. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for diversified REITs and provides equity research on Invesco Mortgage Capital, Inc. (NYSE: IVR) and CYS Investments, Inc. (NYSE: CYS).

Earlier this week, the Federal Reserve reiterated its promise to keep interest rates at "exceptionally low levels... at least through mid-2013," in a largely pro-forma statement after its last meeting of the year. "While indicators point to some improvement in overall labour market conditions, the unemployment rate remains elevated," the Federal Open Market Committee said in a statement at the end of the meeting.
