Two Harbors Investment (NYSE:TWO)
Historical Stock Chart
1 Month : From Mar 2020 to Apr 2020
By Matt Grossman
Mortgage real-estate mortgage trust shares deepened their weekly losses Thursday morning as the Covid-19 crisis disrupts credit markets and jeopardizes commercial tenants.
Mortgage REITs were lower in early trade, with Two Harbors Investment Corp. dropping more than 8%, Starwood Property Trust Inc. declining 6%, and Blackstone Mortgage Trust felling about 4%.
The S&P 500 was trading about 1% higher.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that mortgage REITs are suffering because they rely on leverage and the Covid-19 outbreak has made it hard to find short-term funding.
