    Why are still holding if whatever you said about MBI are true? You should be selling all your holdings and invest elsewhere, correct?

    The following paragraph is so true and a great valid and strong point:
    Furthermore, it is inaccurate to say that the government “owns” the companies. Through the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement that was drafted as a condition of the bailout in 2008, the federal government took over 79 percent of senior stock in both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. That percentage was set precisely to avoid a government takeover. The establishment of a conservatorship under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act was a conscious decision by Congress and the Administration to return the GSEs to private control once they were “sound and solvent.”

  • To the uninitiated, a recent NPR story might have seemed like a primer on how Fannie Mae / Federal National Mortgage Assctn Fnni Me and Freddie Mac / Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp work and a straightforward attempt to explain the facts under the headline, “As Economy Rebounds, Government Still Plays Role In Mortgage Business. But many listeners and Investors Unite members have not been shy about hammering away at what the story didn’t say.
    To be sure, the piece had some good points. We were encouraged to hear the reporter accurately state that Fannie Mae and Freddie have repaid the taxpayer loans they received as a bailout from the 2008 financial crisis. The comment is also in the appropriate context that the government is reaping a windfall from sweeping up all of the companies’ profits:

    "There is an upside to controlling Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at least for now. They’ve paid back the $187 billion bailout and the government gets to keep their profits now – an additional $40 billion so far.”

    On the other hand, in the discussion about how to move forward on the fates of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the piece touched only lightly on the conservatorship and implications for policy options. The story quoted the publisher of Inside Mortgage Finance, Guy Cecala, claiming that there are just two options for the future of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: the government retains ownership or they go completely private. And if they transition to solely private-run, there consequences would be grave indeed:

  • Fannie Mae: Gov’t Preps For Trial Before Sweeney by Todd Sullivan, ValuePlays

    The government filed the below motion today before Judge Sweeney (H/T Peter Chapman)

    APPLICATION FOR ACCESS TO PROTECTED INFORMATION

    Pursuant to paragraph 7 of this Court’s Protective Order dated July 16, 2014 (ECF No. 73), defendant, the United States, respectfully requests that Robert Hutchins, Andrew Ackel, Amanda Levesque, Leigh Lovelady, and Timothy Varner be permitted access to information protected by the Protective Order. All of the applicants are “financial consultants” within the meaning of Paragraph 4 of the Protective Order, and work for the consulting firm Navigant Consulting, Inc., which has been retained by the United States for purposes of this action.

    Counsel for the United States has consulted with counsel for plaintiffs, Fairholme Funds, Inc., et al. (Fairholme), who has indicated that Fairholme does not oppose these applications for access to protected information.

    Mr. Hutchins will lead the team. Hutchins is not an attorney. His area of expertise is in financial fraud, damages and and fiduciary responsibilities. In other words, as a defense witness in a trial for the government. Up until this point they have been relying on CBO and other government analysis of Fannie Mae / Federal National Mortgage Assctn Fnni Me (OTCBB:FNMA) and Freddie Mac / Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp (OTCBB:FMCC) and their actions for their defense. It seems they are understanding this strategy is not working. It may also be a response to the recent Status Conference when there was a disagreement over produced materials (or not yet produced) from Treasury/FHFA. Perhaps that conference did not go the way they wanted?

    It seems government lawyers have finally come to the conclusion that when Sweeney said “plaintiffs will have their day in court” she actually meant it.

    Again today same 1.6M shares. Mms are doing the same thing, but lately it seems like the PPS is tending upwards and in a very narrow range. I am not sure why the volume is stuck always around 1.6M, at least most of the days....

    Everything in this article is very well explained and it is very easy to understand that US needs Fannie and Freddie. And also it clearly says with numbers and facts and also the unfairness done towards Fannie and Freddie till to date. I wonder what is there to think about and why does anybody think that Fannie and Freddie need to be replaced. Every US resident should oppose the wrong doing by the Govt. Please please please wake up folks and demand for the justice and stop this stealing from Fannie and Freddie agencies and also stock investors who are also tax payers.
    I cannot think of even a single soul can benefit by killing these two Fannie and Freddie gems. This is something like how can any soul benefit by destroying themselves.
    Fannie and Freddie need to freed and these agencies should continue to operate the way they have been operating for the last 5-6 decades.
    If somebody thinks that they want to make money let them buy Fannie and Freddie shares at rock bottom prices, which is in mid $2s and then release Fannie and Freddie. Who are the these entities that are blocking Fannie and Freddie to get freed? What is there agenda?
    It's high time to get these two agencies released, if they delay or do something wrong/stupid with these two agencies then almost all the countries and also US residents will be ridiculing this country for ever, and will also defame and destroy the respect of this great nation The United States Of America. because without these two agencies, US will severely be effected and all the other nations that are invested in Fannie and Freddie are also going to get effected. We don't need any other foreign evil bodies/terrorists then this current bodies that are trying to destroy it's own very well established GSEs that are serving this country and in addition these two GSEs also got the the US from the depressing housing industry.
    Rise and Shine folks as we all know Truth prevails

    Most likely MBI will be trading in double digits around May earnings report. Chances are very very high for MBI to be trading above $15 sooner than most of us think on this board.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Some more questions:
    Last time you said you bought Russian shares, but now you are saying you are heavily invested in Europe and emerging Europe.
    Well I was almost sure that you didn't buy MBIA, which turns out to be true, assuming that you are not lying that you didn't buy MBIA. I still wonder why you are hanging on this board, while not buying MBIA and keep posting sarcastic comments on some posts....Something fishy....

    Basically, all of the agencies' profits would be placed into an escrow account, rather than straight into the Treasury's pocket as they have been since Fannie and Freddie became profitable several years ago.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Recently, a bill was introduced in the House of Representatives that would overhaul the way Fannie Mae (NASDAQOTCBB: FNMA ) and Freddie Mac's (NASDAQOTCBB: FMCC ) profits are handled. While this won't directly benefit the agencies or their shareholders right away, it could go a long way toward fixing both the agencies themselves and the current status of the shareholders, which many people believe isn't exactly fair.

    The bill and what it would do
    Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) introduced the bill in order to create a place to put Fannie and Freddie's profits until Congress figures out what to do with the two government-sponsored enterprises. Basically, all of the agencies' profits would be placed into an escrow account, rather than straight into the Treasury's pocket as they have been since Fannie and Freddie became profitable several years ago.

    For one thing, the bill could protect taxpayers from the need for further bailouts should the GSEs lose money. Under the current arrangement, 100% of the agencies' profits, as well as a chunk of their reserves, are sent to the Treasury as a "dividend" payment for the bailouts they received. This is fine while the agencies are making billions of dollars, but what happens if another decline in the housing market occurs and the agencies are facing losses? Having several billion dollars in escrow could prevent the taxpayers from having to inject any more cash into Fannie and Freddie.

    Why shareholders should be happy
    It's important to note that this bill wouldn't actually change anything about the current state of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or their current conservatorship. The agencies still won't be able to keep their profits as reserves or make any distributions to shareholders.

    The newly created escrow fund wouldn't be under Fannie and Freddie's control. In fact, the bill clearly states that any reserve established under this act shall not be considered an asset of the enterprises, other than as part of a capital resto
