Ocwen Financial Corp. Research Report

On August 1, 2013, Ocwen Financial Corp. (Ocwen) released its financial results for Q2 2013. Total revenues increased significantly by 150.7% YoY to $530 million during the quarter.

Commenting on the results, Bill Erbey, Ocwen's Chairman, said, "We believe that higher interest rates will have little negative impact on earnings, as we have only a modest component of income related to originations, and assets and debt are match funded. Higher employment and an improving housing market, on the other hand, should boost Ocwen's earnings."
