Chief Executive Officer Michael Perry has said loans made by IndyMac, which caters to so-called Alt-A borrowers who fall just short of standards for top-rated loans, are 17 times less prone to default than subprime mortgages. Shares of the company had dropped 52 percent this year before today on concern rising defaults on loans made to the riskiest borrowers would spread to the types in which IndyMac specializes.
``Those of us at IndyMac get a little sick of hearing Alt-A is near subprime,'' Perry said on a conference call with analysts. The mortgage industry's losses from Alt-A loans are about 1/12th the rate on subprime loans, he said.
