Liquidity continues to be the name of the game! Chris Bennett from Vice Capital sent, “GNMA 2.0s have struggled from a liquidity standpoint without any support from the Fed like UMBS 2.0s or GNMA 2.5s have, but there is real end-buyer interest there. We recently put out a larger pool of GNMA 2.0s and got bids that ranged from 24/32 below Tradeweb screens to 10/32 above them – in the end they traded well into the 104s. Seems a little crazy to think you can offer 2.25% on a 30yr FHA loan and get 4 points in cash plus keep the servicing for free, but if you’re an issuer that’s where things have evolved to. Wild times.”
