10:14 EDTFMCC, NSM, FNMA, WAC, OCNOIG recommends FHFA actions on nonbank mortgage servicers
The Office of Inspector General issued a report on actions the Federal Housing Finance Agency can take to manage risks from nonbank mortgage servicers such as Ocwen Financial (OCN), Nationstar (NSM) and Walter Investment (WC). The OIG concluded that "while FHFA and the Enterprises have responded well to specific problems at nonbank special servicers, the Agency has not established a risk management process or overall oversight framework to handle some general risks posed by nonbank special servicers." It added, the nonbank special servicers do not have the same capital requirements as a bank, which means they are more susceptible to economic downturns. Such downturns could substantially increase nonperforming loans that require servicer loss mitigation while at the same time impact the ability of the servicer to perform." Reference Link

08:30 EDTWAC, OCN, NSMLawsky 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.
