You should check out Miller Value Partners' top 5 stock picks for investors to buy right now, which could be the biggest winners of this year.

In the said letter, Miller Value Partners highlighted a few stocks and Rocket Companies Inc. (NYSE:RKT) is one of them. Rocket Companies Inc. (NYSE:RKT) provides industry-leading real estate, mortgage and financial services. Rocket Companies Inc. (NYSE:RKT) stock lost 15.4% in the last one month and on October 30th it had a closing price of $18.23. Here is what Miller Value Partners said:

"Rocket Companies came public in the quarter at $18 per share, before rallying to $34 then trading back down to $20. We entered on the pullback. Rocket is an amazing company with a fabulously successful history and culture. It dominates online mortgage originations. We believe its technology platform and culture provide a unique competitive advantage that will allow it to grow market share, earnings and cash flow over time. The mortgage market is volatile and refi’s are likely to peak this year, which will cause volatility in earnings and potentially the stock. But we believe that taking the long view will pay off. We think that we are getting a great deal paying 14x next year’s earnings for a dominant leader with serious long-term compounding potential."
