Hayman Capital’s portfolio manager J. Kyle Bass said the housing market’s losses had already been largely absorbed. Unlike PMI, Bass thinks MTG is a “pretty big positive equity position”. However, he still believes the housing market is still far from firmly “bottoming out”. MTG surges 15% on Monday after the release. The stock is closed at $2.94.
