One thing for sure we will know if Wall street still has more power than the government when its all said and done. Dirty Money has turned our senators into puppets before.
I believe it to be true that when you buy stock in Fannie Mae, you're willingly putting your money behind a company that plainly assures you it will not try and maximize your return.. This is almost like a duh article everyone knows the government plan if executed will make it worthless. Now if they flip flop on the promise made in 2008 to the taxpayers then it has a chance. ITS A HUGE RISK GAMBLE. Will the government keep its promise after the 180 billion bailout or will they change there mind? Lobby wall street money in the back pockets of politicians could change there decision making process and that could be what happens. Who knows certainly not the fool or any hype pumper here on this board.
Wall street article highlights investors concerns. Government says it will end up worthless regardless of investor hype on this board. WILL IT? No one knows for certain because government has been known to flip flop so you may want to use extreme caution. All we do know at this time is that the government promised taxpayers that both Fannie and Freddie would be dismantled. Taxpayers bailed them out for more than 180 billion dollars and the government at that time made a pledge or guarantee to the taxpayers that both would be wound down.. good luck to all.
THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO MONEY WITHOUT THE TAXPAYER.
It is yet to be proved that the government broke any laws when it comes to the constitutional rights of shareholders. The government did in fact protect homeowners and avoided a depression in the economy by agreeing to bail out Fannie and Freddie for 180 billion dollars. Congress decided at that time to promise taxpayers Fannie and Freddie would be dismantled or winded down and replaced by another model that would work to protect taxpayers in the future. Nothing other than speculation and pump that the Government has plans to change its mind on promises it made in 2008 is what's driving the share price.
The board would love for you to share your vast knowledge about the law. Matter of fact can you cite some court case history especially when the courts will have to side with investors. Government and taxpayers are first lien holders. Investors do not have to be rewarded anything as far as the courts are concerned.
I have a very small position. Heavy risk stocka should never exceed 5% of your overall portfolio.
NOT ARGUING WITH THAT. This is just reality discussion about what could happen. If I was a young person and wanted to play in high risk investments hoping to get rich then my advise would be buy a few shares and make it a small percentage of my portfolio. DO NOT BET THE FARM BECAUSE THE SHARES ARE CHEAP AND YOU CAN BUY A LOT OF THEM.
That is absolutely a correct statement. The risk vs reward here is huge. If the government "senators" keep their promise and have not been bought out by lobby hedge fund types then its a total loss. Its a BALLS TO THE WALLS TYPE OF INVESTMENT.. YOU GOT TO HAVE GUTS.
This is what you call a heavy risk investment.
If government sees its gotten taxpayer 180 billion losses back and sells there stake and starts the dismantle talks again. ITS LIGHTS OUT. You will not have enuf time to exit.
Absolutely j. I get a sense that day trading hay days are a fools game now. To many positive things happening now and the ones that only like to day trade will keep chasing it higher only being able to afford buying fewer shares along the way. Those fools like mick and Jr will never see the true profit potential of being long and patient imo. We will see some shake outs and volatility along the way to much higher prices but smart money I believe will now start holding firm.
I believe the SA article that shares are going to triple in the short term with a projection around the end of the 1st quarter of 2014. At that time I believe we will start seeing upgrades from analyst that will be the catalyst to drive share prices higher. THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT.
Who cares what mick or Jr say because if you listen you will regret it imo. The company delays have only come with making sure all the processes work and they are fully capable of producing commercial quantity Isobutanol. They have all the litigation behind them and they have major interest from Coke and Ford for their product. They have the military interest in their product for jet fuel and the coast guard interest for there marine fuel. THE STARS ARE LINING UP HERE.
Also my trailer home needs some winter repairs. Doors broke and need some insulation and duct tape for the pipes so they do not freeze this winter.
Wanted to offload a couple thousand shares I bought short term to buy a flat screen. tired of watching Andy Griffith re runs on my rabbit ear black and white tv. We at siri long or short are tired and hungry for some action.
smart money knows that with dilution coming trend is down. WHERE ARE THE PROFITS AFTER ALL THESE YEARS OF PROMISES. CHECK FUNDAMENTALS FOR YOURSELF.
