    Be fair to Fannie & Freddie (F&F) and the investors

    Here's what the government should do:
    By the end of the year F&F will have technically paid off their bailout loan to the treasury. At that time announce that F&F are being released from their conservatorship. Then the treasury could start selling off the $72 billion worth of preferred stock they own at a slow steady monthly or quarterly rate so they don't shock the market. In the end the government would get twice their money back and investors would have a hay day scooping up the released shares. Can you imagine what both stocks would do if they took this common sense approach. Yea I know it's a long shot, a pipe dream, but it would be the fair thing to do and everyone including the government would come out smelling like a rose! I know it might work too well and everyone would be happy and we can't have that now can we!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sentiment: Hold
