08:30 EDTNSM, WACLawsky reports a positive for mortgage space, says FBR Capital
FBR Capital views reports of New York Department of Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky’s plans to step down in 2015 as a positive for mortgage servicing space. FBR notes Ocwen Financial (OCN) has been the company under the most scrutiny with Lawsky in charge and that Nationstar Mortgage (NSM)) has also received a letter from the regulator. It also views the reports as a positive for Walter Investment (WAC), which it notes has avoided a targeted communication by Lawsky thus far. FBR thinks a softening of the regulatory environment could allow the big banks to start moving product again.

07:24 EDTWACWalter Investment expects improving economy to lower delinquency rates
The company said, "The current low rate environment is also conducive to our strategy to maximize our portfolio's retention opportunity. The market for prime MSR continues to be both strong and competitive as small and mid-sized originators look to monetize their MSR assets to offset light origination economics and demand from larger players and financial buyers has driven a tightening of asset yields. We continue to see an increase in the flow of competitively priced legacy deals in the market as large depository institutions and other clients focus on their core customer base and core competencies, driving their interest in the sale or outsourcing of non-core assets and related activities such as servicing. The broader mortgage market remains challenging as purchase money volumes continue to be subdued and the retail sector remains competitive. Active regulatory oversight of the sector continues and it is our expectation that in the current environment participants who have scale, are appropriately capitalized, are compliant with regulatory requirements, and have significant experience and a strong track record in transferring servicing assets will be best positioned to grow their business in the future."
