Ocwen Penalty Lower Than Expected

As I just wrote in the comments section on Ocwen (OCN): I am waiting for questions to be answered at the company's 5PM conference call before I do anything. At $150 million, the settlement was at the lower end of the $ expectations (I was using $200...

Ocwen Moves off Yesterday's Low

I'm adding to Altisource Portfolio Solutions (ASPS). Ocwen Financial (OCN) has had a nice move (+10%) from yesterday's low of under $20/share. Its sister company, ASPS, continues to trail its big brother, so I am adding to ASPS.

Growing More Aggressive on ASPS

I am growing more aggressive on Altisource Portfolio Solutions (ASPS) under $48.

Adding to ASPS and AAMC

Pressing OCN, C and ASPS Longs

Back in on ASPS

A small long position. I repurchased a small long position in Altisource Portfolio Solutions (ASPS) this morning ($48). I think the hedge fund community, heavily weighted in the Ocwen (OCN) complex, might mark the group up in the days ahead. I am pl...

Best Idea for 2015: Ocwen Financial

Taking My Licking

I've made too many assumptions in ASPS already. The Cockroach Theory has certainly been relevant to the Ocwen (OCN) complex over the last six months.  Normally, I would aggressively be buying Altisource Portfolio (ASPS) after its big fall today. Aft...

More on Altisource

ASPS is off Best Ideas and I'll sell RESI and AAMC. Though I am not selling my small long position, I am taking Altisource Portfolio (ASPS) off my Best Ideas list because that positioning can't be justified in light of today's news. I am also sellin...
