Nationstar (NSM) Aims to Build on Ocwen (OCN) Momentum

 

Ocwen Financial (OCN) shares rose more than 4% Thursday after it reported a 51% spike in Q4 revenue, to $236.4 million, and adjusted earnings of 51 cents, up 82% from the year earlier. Now investors are turning their sights to another major special mortgage servicer, Nationstar Mortgage (NSM), which will report on Thursday, Investor’s Business Daily reported.

Analysts expect Nationstar, which went public last March, to post $306 million in Q4 revenue and per-share profit of 69 cents. Nationstar shares rose 1.7% to 39.18 Friday. The company's stock has soared 180% since it went public in March 2012.

Nationstar's management has said they expect to originate at least $16 billion in loans this year, more than double the annualized run rate through the third quarter of 2012.

Ocwen outbid Nationstar in a bankruptcy auction in October. Nationstar went on to win $215 billion in loan servicing rights from Bank of America, bringing its servicing portfolio to $425 billion.

OCN and NSM are Cabot Top Ten Trader stocks.

Here's a quick note from our Publisher...

Dear Reader,

In an age dominated by rapid-fire news, where people often talk first and think later, how do you make sense of the world? More importantly, how do you use the evidence available to you to make intelligent investment choices?

I suggest you choose Cabot, and here's why.

Timothy Lutts

First we've been in the business of advising individual investors for more than 42 years. So we have the benefit not just of experience but also of perspective, something sadly lacking in many advisers today.

Second, our advice is designed to serve you, not the companies we recommend or any third-party sponsor. We don't manage money, and we never accept payment, in any form, to recommend a company.

Third, we promise you independent thought. Way back in the eighth grade, my history teacher, Max Pofcher, once called me an iconoclast-I had to go home to look it up. But it turns out he was right. I've always liked to question the common wisdom, not in an obnoxious way, but in a quiet, probing-for-the-facts way. And my decades in the investment industry have reinforced the value of this trait.

So join us today. It costs nothing, and I guarantee you both stimulating reading and well-reasoned investment advice you can trust.

Stock Picks

Norwegian Cruise Lines

Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCLH) is one of the “big 3” in the cruise industry. There’s a real growth story here thanks to a steady expansion in the firm’s ship count, along with an acquisition last year that gives it exposure to the high end of the market.

Constellation Brands

This maker of wines (Mondavi, Clos du Bois, Ravenswood), beer (Corona, Modelo and TsingTao) and spirits (Svedka, Black Velvet and Paul Masson) gets 89% of its revenues from the U.S. and 11% from Canada, so the strong dollar isn’t hurting.

Cheetah Mobile

My stock pick this week is a Chinese stock that was featured in the Other Stocks of Interest section of Cabot Growth Investor. (It’s also in the portfolio of Cabot China & Emerging Markets Report).
