Nationstar Mortgage Originations Holding Up

Quarterly loan originations are holding up at Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc., and signs point to more of the same. Servicing, however, was down.

In its fourth-quarter 2017 earnings report, the Dallas-based mortgage banking firm disclosed income before income tax expense of $58 million.

Earnings sank from $317 million in the final-three months of 2016. But results were stronger than $12 million in the preceding three-month period.

Retail, Reverse Overcome Lending Slump at Ocwen

Total mortgage originations weakened last year at Ocwen Financial Corp. But retail lending and reverse mortgage production both significantly increased. Also improving was delinquency.

Prior to income taxes, Ocwen had a $45 million loss during the final-three months of last year, according to its fourth-quarter earnings report.

Losses widened from $10 million in the same three months during 2016. But the West Palm Beach, Florida-based company cut its losses from $27 million the previous quarter.
