The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, News, Secondary Market Share Save Home / Daily Dose / Are NPL and RPL Markets the Key to Investor Growth? A new report by Semper argues that the U.S. economy is transitioning from a post-crisis, recovering market back into a normalized market, and that NPL/RPL investments “should disproportionally benefit from the increases in credit availability and home price increases that typically occur during these transitions due to the embedded structural leverage to these factors.”According to Semper, the housing crisis and its immediate aftermath turned portfolios of clean, current-pay loans into “mixed bags of underwater, non-performing assets.” But this environment in the NPL/RPL market in turn allowed for the mortgage holders who preferred performing assets to transfer impaired mortgages to investors who saw opportunities through active loan servicing. Consequently, post-crisis changes in banking capital requirements compelled many NPL and RPL holders to reduce holdings of their assets on their balance sheets. This, Semper argues, created excess supply in the market, and that led to varied investment approaches‒‒private equity, hedge funds, and REITs, for example‒‒being set up to absorb that supply.“Today, we estimate an NPL inventory of [roughly] $105 billion, compared to estimates of $35 billion prior to the financial crisis,” Semper reported. “However, not only is the supply of NPLs still well above pre-crisis levels, NPLs are still well over double historical levels, and the market continues to draw new supply from a steady stream of ongoing loan defaults within the outstanding universe of pre-crisis mortgages, as well as post-crisis origination.”Semper argues that despite a recovering economy on its way back to normal, the need to effectively work out the NPL borrower base has not changed. Further, the company reported, these borrowers are being liquidated in a much more stable and functional credit environment than what we saw in the period immediately following the financial crisis.“As certain players have exited the trade, the supply and risk reward profile remains,” the report stated, “but it is now combined with our positive outlook on housing technical and fundamentals.”Semper recommends several approaches: NPL securitization senior tranches featuring 40 to 50 percent credit enhancement, coupon step-ups that limit the extension of securitizations (and, thereby, encouraging issuers to exercise optional redemptions); RPL shifting interest securitizations that center on heavily seasoned underlying loans that boast strong credit profiles; and NPL whole loans that allow opportunities to invest directly into an active asset management strategy based on the underlying credit, and allow investors to either highlight or reduce exposure to certain sectors or loan characteristics such as legal jurisdiction or property type.“We remain focused on investments and liquidity within the NPL and RPL sectors and remain constructive on the fundamental outlook of the assets and within the investment strategies above,” Semper concluded.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPhoto by Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(PHILADELPHIA) — The Philadelphia Phillies have lost ten of their last sixteen games, falling to fourth place in the National League East. Now, with their playoff hopes beginning to dwindle, the team has fired hitting coach John Mallee and replaced him with a key figure from their past.The team announced Tuesday that former World Series winning manager Charlie Manuel will take over for Mallee, joining the team in the dugout. He is expected to remain in that role through the end of the 2019 season.Manuel, 75, won exactly 1,000 games as a manager of the Cleveland Indians and Phillies. He also ranks 39th all-time with a .548 winning percentage as a manager.Players have long liked Manuel’s approach to hitting in particular. He served as the hitting coach for Cleveland during the mid 1990s, when the team led the American League in runs scored three times, set a franchise record with 1,009 runs scored in a season, and led the league in home runs twice.The Phillies fired Manuel in August 2013. He later returned to the team as a senior advisor to the general manager, a role he had remained in up through the coaching change on Tuesday.The Phillies rank 11th in the National League in home runs, 12th in batting average, and ninth in runs scored this season.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:Investors managing more than $2 trillion are calling on Texas regulators to ban the routine burning of natural gas from shale fields, arguing that the energy industry hasn’t moved quickly enough to curb the controversial practice.AllianceBernstein, California State Teachers’ Retirement System and Legal & General Investment Management said they support eliminating gas flaring by 2025, according to a letter to the Texas Railroad Commission, which oversees oil and gas in the state. All three investors have been vocal on environmental issues before, but it’s the first time large institutional investors have taken such a public stance to the Texas regulator.“Actions of leading operators demonstrate the financial and technical viability of ending routine flaring,” the fund managers said in the letter, which was seen by Bloomberg. “It is clear, however, that voluntary actions alone have been insufficient to eliminate routine flaring industry-wide.”Investors and environmentalists are increasingly drawing attention to flaring because of its wastefulness and contribution to climate change. Flaring is utilized around the world as a way to deal with gas that producers can’t — or don’t want to — transport or store. Much of what’s burned, especially in the shale fields of Texas, is so-called associated gas coming from oil wells.The sheer abundance of gas in the Permian Basin of West Texas and New Mexico means local prices for the fossil fuel are often so low that it’s cheaper for shale operators to burn it rather than pay for pipeline connections and storage. Last year the Permian flared enough gas to supply 5 million U.S. homes, according to Oslo-based Rystad Energy.The Texas Railroad Commission has come under attack for allowing companies to effectively flare at will over the past decade as shale production boomed and helped make the U.S. the world’s top oil producer. The commission allows companies to flare during the start-up of wells and during emergencies. It also issues waivers that can be utilized right through the early and most productive phase of a shale well’s operation. After more than a year of public pressure, the commission recently proposed reducing the amount of flaring time allowed under some waivers and requiring operators to provide information on why they need to flare, but it set no targets and resisted calls for an outright ban.

Proceeds from the festival all go to benefit the Binghamton Philharmonic. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Creamy or gooey, cheesy or spicy, whatever makes your mouth water, Mac & Cheese fest has the mac for you. “We’re doing an elote-style mac and cheese with a cheddar queso cheese sauce, topped with queso fresco, chili powder, and poblano peppers,” said Jeffrey Thacher with Garage Taco Bar. In it’s fifth year, dozens of restaurants gathered at the Holiday Inn in downtown Binghamton with unique and signature recipes, all to dazzle a panel of judges. For those attending, the twists on mac and cheese bring people back year after year. Restaurateurs and attendees can all agree the festival brings foodies together. “It’s a good way to get into the community, talk to other restaurants and cooks, exchange ideas,” said Thacher. “I love the familiar faces, there’s so many people that I’ve seen that I recognize, and it’s great, everyone seems to love it,” said Tabatha Newton, owner of The Relief Pitcher. “We started coming here at the first Mac and Cheese Fest, and we’ve been coming ever since. It’s a tradition for us,” said Christina Taylor. She’s made it a yearly tradition to taste all the macs with her daughter. After taste-testing all the macaroni, attendees have the chance to place their vote for five different judging categories. While it’s nice to claim the coveted title of having the best mac and cheese, restaurants can agree the festival brings a little more than friendly competition.
