07:51 EDTBAC, NSM, FIG, NCTNewcastle Investment to acquire excess MSRs, spin-off residential assets
Newcastle Investment (NCT) announced that it has agreed to acquire an interest in Excess Mortgage Servicing Rights, or MSRs. The total unpaid principal balance of the underlying loans was approximately $215B as of November 30, 2012. In a separate transaction on January 4, 2013, Newcastle acquired an interest in the Excess MSRs on a $13B Ginnie Mae pool. These transactions are expected to bring Newcastle’s total investment in Excess MSRs to approximately $610M and the UPB of the underlying loans to over $310B. Newcastle has agreed to acquire Excess MSRs on approximately $215B UPB from Nationstar Mortgage Holdings (NSM), in conjunction with Nationstar’s purchase of MSRs from Bank of America (BAC). Newcastle has committed to invest approximately $340M to acquire a one-third interest in the Excess MSRs. The majority of the investment is expected to close in the first quarter of 2013, subject to regulatory and third-party approvals. Nationstar will service the loans and will retain a one-third interest in the Excess MSRs; a Fortress (FIG) Fund will acquire the remaining one-third interest. The loans comprise four pools, of which 47% are expected to be loans that are owned, insured or guaranteed by Agency/Government entities and 53% are expected to be non-conforming loans in private label securitizations. Separately, Newcastle invested $27M for a one-third interest in the Excess MSRs on a $13B UPB Ginnie Mae loan pool from Nationstar. As in the transaction described above, Nationstar is the servicer and owns a one-third interest. The Fortress Fund acquired the remaining one-third interest. Newcastle intends to spin off these and certain other residential assets.

06:40 EDTBACU.S. banks prepared to take advantage of Euro lenders' cautions, WSJ says
U.S. banks are preparing to advance in the sector after reporting earnings, with executives touting the gloom coming from their European counterparts as a major opportunity to capitalize on their newfound advantage, the Wall Street Journal reports. On Thursday, Deutsche Bank (DB) CEO John Cryan said that the company must "shrink" its balance sheet, while Barclays (BCS) chairman John McFarlane said that Wall Street lenders are "an enormous threat" to Euro investment banks, the report says. On the other hand, Morgan Stanley (MS) chairman James Gorman said after reporting earnings last week that the company is poised to advanced in the debt trading sector, and that "there's a potential for, over a period of time, share gain for our business," the report says. In addition, Goldman Sachs finance chief Harvey Schwartz said that the company is "seeing potential big restructuring on the European side," the report adds. Publicly traded companies in the European space include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS). Publicly traded companies in the U.S. space include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link

06:55 EDTBACBanks pitch total-return swaps as stock purchase alternative, WSJ reports
Banks have been pitching certain hedge fund clients on using derivatives instead of actual stocks when placing certain bets in an effort to lessen the impact of new capital rules on the banks' businesses, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the efforts. The shift involves derivatives known as total-return swaps that mirror the effects of owning a stock or other asset, the report says. Units of Bank of America (BAC), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), and UBS (UBS) are among the banks asking clients to shift trades into total-return swaps instead of underlying securities, the report says.
