CoreLogic benefits from lots of mortgage refinancing action, a couple of tuck-in acquisitions, and a cost-reduction program that's getting some traction.
Now what: The company is also shedding five underperforming business units in order to refocus on the profitable analytics and mortgage origination divisions. Moreover, management is still looking at "strategic alternatives," which often is code for being buyout bait. Direct rival Lender Processing Services
