Shares in personal and mortgage finance firm Rocket Companies (RKT) shot very close to the moon on Tuesday, up 71% in a single day of frenzied trading with no breaking news Admittedly, Rocket made a profit recently reported, announcing 144% fiscal fourth quarter revenue growth that nearly tripled net income, and predicts Q1 volume will be between $ 98 billion and $ 103 billion or more in Q1 2021, increasing from 90% to 99 % “
But that too was the news last week. So far this week, literally nothing significant has happened that would explain why Rocket Companies stocks should soar so high
Given the puzzle, Daniel Perlin, an analyst at RBC Capital, reluctantly concluded that it was time to get Rocket stock on Sector Perform (ie, Hold) with an unchanged target price of $ 30 (To look at Perlin’s track record , click here)
The 5-star analyst argued that Rocket’s Q4 numbers were “strong” last week, confirming its “street high” price target for the stock, but described Tuesday’s volatility as “abnormal “and warned investors of the stock’s closing price of $ 41-60, the risk in Rocket stocks is now” tilted down “”
If you’re an investor in Rocket, the fact that the company’s biggest fan on Wall Street has just stepped into bear camp and forecast a 28% drop in the company’s share price is probably a little worrying – but not completely lose heart
In Perlin’s view, all of the factors previously highlighted as beneficial to Rocket’s business remain in effect. “The mortgage market remains high,” advises the analyst, “the initial volume was very strong in the fourth quarter,” and this loan volume is likely to nearly double in the first quarter of 2021. Rocket will continue to benefit with “positive operational leverage” and while this trend is nearing its peak, Perlin expects it to continue for at least “FY21” will and possibly will last until 2022
However, after Rocket’s remarkable rise on Tuesday, the analyst seems to think that now is a good time to declare victory and go home
At first glance, it seems like an overreaction. After all, based on the $ 4.10 in “adjusted diluted” earnings Rocket reported for fiscal 2020, even Tuesday’s staggering stock price jump leaves Rocket’s stock trading close to 10 times that adjusted Numbers lie To illustrate the analyst’s pessimism about future price gains, consider the following:
Perlin estimates that revenues have exceeded $ 16 billion in 2020 and will drop about 21% ($ 13 billion) in 2021) before another 28% ($ 9 billion) in 2022 This trend is already not looking particularly favorable Perlin also estimates that Rocket’s earnings this year will be about 35% lower than last year ($ 2) 66 per share) – and then drop another 38% to $ 165 per share in 2022
Perlin is not the only one who plays it safe at RKT, as TipRanks Analytics reports the stock as a hold. Out of 10 analysts recorded in the last 3 months, 3 say “Buy”, 5 “Hold” and 2 “Sell” With a potential loss of ~ 38%, the consensus target for the stock is $ 2567 (See RKT stock analysis on TipRanks)

However, the company’s fundamentals don’t support the 16-17 times price-to-date earnings multiple created by the Jan. 2 close As was implied in March, Elliott said in a note, “However, surprisingly resilient gains could support a re-evaluation of massive, tech-driven non-bank lenders like Rocket and UWM if they continue to perform as interest rates rise.” But Rocket’s gains signal more than just Reddit mania With a market value that is worth more than some of its peers combined, the company has cemented itself as a heavyweight in the emerging mortgage technology sector after an initial public offering in August backed by retail investors and real estate tailwinds.
