Overall, the data shows decline in several sectors, notably in prepayments and delinquencies. Prepayment speeds fell 15 percent in February, which Black Knight notes as marking a 40 percent overall year-to-date decline, and the lowest monthly rate in three years.The total national loan delinquency rate (loans 30 or more days past due, but not in foreclosure) fell to 4.31 percent, a 0.98 percent decline, in February. This is a year-over-year drop from last year of 5.51 percent. Foreclosure sales dropped month-over-month to 1.87 percent, a decline of 16.23 percent, but increased year-over-year by 0.22 percent. Black Knight data shows that there was a total of 2,605,000 homes in foreclosure or past due at the end of February, a negative difference of 302,000. The current number of homes in foreclosure is at 470,000, the lowest level since June 2007.The exact numbers of homes in default but not foreclosure dropped as well. February saw a month-over-month drop in properties past due by 30 days or more by 27,000. The total number of these defaults in February was 2,135,000. This is a year-over-year decline as well, by 117,000. Properties that are 90 days or more past due dropped as well, by 23,000; putting the total number at 641,000. This is a year-over-year drop of 131,000.Foreclosure starts dropped by nearly 18 percent in February to 57,900, coming off of January’s jump, which Black Knight called a “normal byproduct of the typical Oct-Nov yearly peak in serious delinquencies”. This is a 31 percent year-over-year drop.By state, Mississippi holds the highest number of delinquent loans. 3.37 percent of loans in Mississippi were 90 days or more delinquent in February, a year-over-year decline of 12.50 percent.

Topics : New Zealand on Monday recorded no new cases of the coronavirus for the first time since March 16 and less than a week after the Pacific nation ended a strict lockdown that appears to have contained the outbreak.Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield told a news conference the result was cause for celebration, noting the death toll remained at 20 with no additional virus-related fatalities.”It is symbolic of the effort everyone has put in,” Bloomfield told reporters. “This is the first day that we had no new cases and we want to keep it that way.”Last Tuesday New Zealand ended a strict lockdown which shut offices, schools, malls, restaurants, playgrounds and all other public areas for over a month.However, several social restrictions remain in place with millions of New Zealanders still working and studying from home, although some economic activity was allowed to resume.Bloomfield cautioned that people must continue social distancing measures to ensure COVID-19 does not return. “Clearly these are encouraging figures today, but it is just one moment in time,” Bloomfield said.”The real test is later this week when we factor in the incubation period for the virus and the time it takes for people to display symptoms which is generally five to six days after exposure.”The total number of confirmed cases in the country is 1,137, he said.Foreign Minister Winston Peters on Monday backed calls for a so called trans-Tasman bubble that would allow movement of people between New Zealand and Australia, saying such an arrangement could work “seriously well”.Australia has so far escaped the high numbers of casualties seen in other countries, with about 6,800 infections and 95 deaths.The country had 26 new cases of the coronavirus on Monday, including a seven-year-old boy, across three states in the biggest daily jump in two weeks.A New Zealand rugby team was given the green light to fly to Australia and start training for a tournament while undergoing 14 days of quarantine.”Officials in both countries are considering all aspects of the trans-Tasman concept, and planning how this could happen more broadly,” Peters said.
Miller is three days shy of his 24th birthday. While we remember Josh Beckett winning a World Series MVP award at 23 once upon a time, the New York Yankees had never seen Beckett before then. The deer-in-the-headlights look might be more plausible for Miller, who’s seen the Dodgers five times before today. The last time, in June, Miller was torched for six runs in five innings. In 12 1/3 total head-to-head innings against the Dodgers, Miller has allowed nine runs. He’s a familiar foe — one the Dodgers will be happy to see.3. The Dodgers are bounceback kings.You have to reach back a while to find a time the Dodgers were held to one run or fewer, like they were Monday in St. Louis. Hint: it was back on Sept. 12, when the Giants beat them 9-0 in San Francisco. The next day, the Dodgers scored 17 runs. To some extent, that was no fluke. For a team that averaged 6.2 runs per game in September, it’s just not likely that the Dodgers will lay an egg for a second straight day. And with Kershaw on the mound, it shouldn’t take many runs to win.4. Yasiel Puig is due.Puig’s triple into the corner Monday led to the Dodgers’ only run against the Cardinals. Prior to that, he’d struck out in seven straight at-bats. But if the Dodgers’ emotional number-two hitter can get his act together, the lineup should regain some of its luster. Puig doubled off Miller back in June. 5. It’s a good matchup for Dee Gordon.Gordon’s only been on base three times in the first three games of the series. The Dodgers have scored 13 runs without the help of their All-Star leadoff hitter. But he’s 2-for-6 with a double against Miller, who allowed more stolen bases (14, compared to only 6 caught stealing) than any Cardinals starter. If Gordon gets on base – and he should – look out. The Dodgers face elimination today in Game 4 of the NLDS. With the Dodgers trailing 2 games to 1, Game 4 is at 2:07 p.m. (West Coast) on FS1. Here are five reasons the Dodgers aren’t done. 1. Clayton Kershaw is on the mound. This is one of those hypothetical questions that gets tossed around in the dull moments of winter, maybe during free-agent and arbitration negotiations: If you could choose only one, which pitcher would you want on the mound in a do-or-die game? That conversation must start with Kershaw, who has led the major leagues in earned-run average each of the last four seasons and did his best work yet in 2014. He might be the National League MVP. He hasn’t lost back-to-back games in a year. It’s not bloody likely to happen now.2. Shelby Miller is also on the mound. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
