12:17 EDTNSM, GM, OCNNationstar advances after Kyle Bass ups stake
Shares of mortgage servicer Nationstar Mortgage (NSM) are climbing after hedge fund Hayman Capital announced earlier this morning that it had increased its stake in the company to 5.3% from about 1.2%. WHAT'S NEW: In an interview earlier today on CNBC, Hayman Capital Managing Partner Kyle Bass indicated that the firm was upbeat on Nationstar's outlook in the mortgage sector. About $1.8T of mortgages have moved to nonbank servicers like Nationstar from banks, Bass stated. More importantly, companies like Nationstar are much more effective at servicing mortgages than banks, he said. "We think that this market opportunity will grow from $10 trillion to $11-$12 trillion over the next five years, and (the companies') servicing profitability will increase annually as the number of delinquent loans drop," the hedge fund manager stated. Asked about an investigation launched earlier this month by New York Superintendent of Financial Services Benjamin Lawsky into Nationstar, Bass said, "New York is important but it's one state." Moreover, the ratio of complaints per delinquent loan handled by Nationstar is 1.9%, versus an average ratio of 7% for banks, Bass stated. Nationstar's ratio in this area is also lower than that of all of its peers, the hedge fund manager noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The second best ratio of complaints per delinquent loans in the mortgage service industry is held by Ocwen Financial (OCN), Bass reported. Addressing a separate issue, Bass said that General Motors (GM) is "one of the cheapest companies" in the S&P Index, and should reach the high $40s or $50 in the next 18 months. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Nationstar rose $1.50, or 4.8%, to $32.75. Ocwen climbed 4.6% to $40.80 and GM rose 2% to $34.50.

08:01 EDTGMStifel says evidence supports Apple moving into electric vehicles
Analysts at Stifel say they see enough evidence to suggest that Apple is internally working on the development of a battery electric vehicle to be sold over the next five-to-ten years. The analysts are "intrigued" by Apple CFO Luca Maestri's background at General Motors (GM). They believe Apple's investments in manufacturing should be a key consideration for investors and point out the $40B spent by the iPhone maker over the past five years, with 80%-plus invested in manufacturing, is similar to GM, Ford (F) and Daimler-Benz and well above Tesla's $1.8B cumulative capex. The analysts say there is a "lot to think about" regarding Apple's move into the car space, including the regulatory environment. They keep a Buy rating on the tech giant with a $150 price target. Shares of Apple closed yesterday down 97c to $127.50.
