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.

    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.
