Coming into today, shares of the mortgage banking and investment management company had gained 27.85% in the past month. In that same time, the Finance sector gained 7.85%, while the S&P 500 gained 4.5%.

Wall Street will be looking for positivity from PFSI as it approaches its next earnings report date. In that report, analysts expect PFSI to post earnings of $3.08 per share. This would mark year-over-year growth of 234.78%. Meanwhile, our latest consensus estimate is calling for revenue of $679.65 million, up 124.32% from the prior-year quarter.

Looking at the full year, our Zacks Consensus Estimates suggest analysts are expecting earnings of $11.83 per share and revenue of $2.62 billion. These totals would mark changes of +141.92% and +77.67%, respectively, from last year.

Investors should also note any recent changes to analyst estimates for PFSI. Recent revisions tend to reflect the latest near-term business trends. With this in mind, we can consider positive estimate revisions a sign of optimism about the company's business outlook.

Based on our research, we believe these estimate revisions are directly related to near-team stock moves. Investors can capitalize on this by using the Zacks Rank. This model considers these estimate changes and provides a simple, actionable rating system.

Ranging from #1 (Strong Buy) to #5 (Strong Sell), the Zacks Rank system has a proven, outside-audited track record of outperformance, with #1 stocks returning an average of +25% annually since 1988. Within the past 30 days, our consensus EPS projection has moved 6.91% higher. PFSI is currently a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).

Investors should also note PFSI's current valuation metrics, including its Forward P/E ratio of 3.61. Its industry sports an average Forward P/E of 9.01, so we one might conclude that PFSI is trading at a discount comparatively.
