Countrywide Financial Corporation’s production in January skyrocketed past last year’s — but it didn’t quite match December’s grand funding finale.

The Calabasas, Calif.-based company produced $33.7 billion in loan fundings last month, a hair off from December’s $35.2 billion. But it more than doubled the $14.8 billion in fundings from January 2002.

Purchase fundings came to $7.8 billion during the month, $3 billion more than last year at this time. It’s a billion less than December’s purchase fundings, however.

Countrywide was co-founded by Kurland in 1969. Its shares were up $0.12 at $53.35 during late-morning trading, according to
