Mortgage servicers all move higher after a big earnings report from Nationstar (NSM +5.7%). Nationstar cousin Newcastle (NCT +2%), Ocwen (OCN +2.4%), Walter Investment (WAC +2.1%). Scale is key in the servicing business, and Nationstar has increased its UPB by an average 104% annually since 2008 (presentation). Another nice profit center is originations, and they're expected to more than triple this year, helped by the immediately accretive acquisition of Greenlight at 0.7x AEBITDA.
