One of its biggest reasons is insider buying: in the month of august alone few of the biggest highest ranking officers of the company including CEO and CIO purchased more than 2, 00,000 shares.  There are different reasons for insiders to sale the shares but only one reason to buy that they believe that the shares are undervalues. In addition, another noteworthy point is that over the past six months there was not a single sale of shares by the insiders of the company.

Another two reasons for the strong positive bullish signals are rising 10-year bond yields which imply rising income for the company and ridiculously cheap valuation that the company bulls that it sells at a discount to book value.

In summary, company’s future depends on its ability, that how it absorbs opportunity of rise in interest rates to manage its declining value of its portfolio of mortgages. And also how its income increases as long term rates rises faster than short term rates.
