Bond insurers Assured Guaranty Ltd. and MBIA Inc. each released first-quarter earnings Monday, and while their results were vastly dissimilar, they shared at least one thing in common — each company’s stock quickly tumbled afterward.

MBIA fell almost 6.22%, or $0.58 to $8.75, after the company posted a net loss to shareholders of $1.5 billion in the quarter, mostly driven by a $2.2 billion loss on insured credit derivatives.
