MGIC Investment Corporation (NYSE: MTG) issued an Operational Summary of the primary mortgage insurance of its insurance subsidiaries for the month of January 2021. The summary is also available on the company’s investor website under Newsroom, Press Releases.
The information concerning new delinquency notices and cures is compiled from reports received from loan servicers. The level of new notice and cure activity reported in a particular month can be influenced by, among other things, the date on which a servicer generates its report, the accuracy of the data provided by servicers, the number of business days in a month, transfers of servicing between loan servicers, and whether all servicers have provided the reports in a given month. Notices of delinquency are typically reported to us when loans are two payments past due (for example, for January we report as a new delinquency any delinquent loan that missed its December 1st (or earlier) payment that was not previously reported to us.) We expect the number of delinquencies will continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Delinquency activity will be influenced by various factors, including the length and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, the length of time that measures intended to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 remain in place, the resulting level of unemployment, and the impact of various government initiatives to mitigate the economic harm caused by COVID-19 and efforts to reduce its transmission.
