Rocket Companies’ shares fell sharply in the extended session Wednesday after its first post-IPO results missed Wall Street estimates even though it swung to a profit from the year-ago period and posted record closed-loan-origination volume amid low interest rates. Shares of the parent company of mortgage-lending giant Quicken Loans fell as much as 8% in after-hours trading, after closing nearly 2% higher, to $31.31, in the regular session. Rocket Cos. RKT, +1.95%, which went public last month, reported second-quarter net income of $3.46 billion versus a loss of $54 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted net income was $2.85 billion, adjusted for income-tax expenses and stock compensation. Revenue surged to $5.03 billion from $937 million in the year-ago quarter. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast earnings of $1.43 a share on revenue of $5.27 billion.
