Just yesterday, one of those Fools, PKandJulia, succinctly summed up the Two Harbors bull case for our community:

Buy low, sell high. ... Housing and mortgage paper (and banks too) are beginning a recovery. [Two Harbors] appears to have solid management and are invested right there. At book value or below, that should be a successful combination.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Two Harbors may not be your top choice.

    Any thoughts on buying TWO now and/or also Silver Bay Realty Trust (SBY)? SBY was recently spun off from TWO and began trading on the 14th. TWO intends to distribute the shares of SBY it received after the 90-day lockup expires.
