A total of $333.1 billion of residential MBS backed by freshly originated home loans were issued during the second quarter of 2016, a 30.3 percent increase over the first three months of the year. But that trailed the 34.2 percent surge in primary-market originations during the same period. The result was a further decline in the mortgage securitization rate, from 67.3 percent in the first quarter to 65.3 percent in the second, according to a new Inside MBS & ABS analysis. It marked the lowest securitization rate since 2004, when the non-agency MBS market was just beginning to take off. The biggest decline was...[Includes one data table]

Non-Agency MBS Market Faltered in Second Quarter, Stumbling To Lowest New Issuance Since End of 2013

The non-agency MBS market shriveled up and nearly blew away in the second quarter of 2016 as new issuance totaled only $6.96 billion, according to an Inside MBS & ABS analysis. New production tumbled 17.0 percent from the first quarter of the year, which failed to top the $10 billion mark in issuance.

While there was a stiff decline in re-securitization activity from the first quarter, scratch-and-dent securitizations of nonperforming, re-performing and other dinged-up assets increased...[Includes two data tables]
