12:17 EDTGM, OCN, NSMNationstar 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.

In a regulatory filing, Ocwen stated: "We currently are in negotiations with our lenders for the renewal, replacement or extension of our debt arrangements that mature or begin amortization in 2015. We may also consider other capital markets transactions including, but not limited to, the sale and financing of advance receivables in the event we do not renew, replace or extend a portion or all of our existing advance financing facilities. We have entered into commitment letters to refinance certain of our debt agreements and extended certain facilities ahead of their scheduled maturity...Our lenders’ obligations to fund under these commitment letters are subject to conditions precedent, some of which are outside our control. In the event we are unable to renew, replace or extend all of these debt agreements, we may not have adequate sources of funding for our business. Due to the significant level of cash requirements related to servicing advances, we may not have sufficient levels of liquidity to fund the operations without our advance financing facilities. We typically require significantly more liquidity to meet our advance funding obligations than our available cash on hand."
