Before becoming’s publisher in 2000, Mr. Garcia worked in mortgage lending for 20 years. His mostly subprime wholesale career included stints at companies that have gone out of business or been acquired.

Lender failures dating back to 1999 are featured in one of four columns. Among the latest lenders to close were SouthStar Funding and LoanCity.

Another column features lenders that have been acquired since 1998. This year, ABN AMRO Mortgage Group and ResMAE are among notable acquisitions.

One column lists subprime mortgage bankers that are currently struggling, such as New Century Financial Corp. and Accredited Home.
