Philadelphia-based Radian said the numbers were offset by 5,198 loans which cured, 1,450 loans where it paid on existing coverage, and 81 rescissions or denials. This brought the inventory down to 93,980 units.

Radian reiterated that it has a cash position of $3.2 billion, which was mentioned in its third quarter results released last week.
