I agree that the situation is very delicate. I believe shareholders will be compensated.
That being said the predictions of 20 40 60 a share is unrealistic to predict. My opinion some sort closed door deal will be made by next administration that keeps the governments secrets secret in exchange for some compensation for share holders. That compensation will not be the full value of the shares real worth but will be enough for big players to make a sizeable profit to not pursue lawsuits in exchange for government to keep documents sealed and create some hybrid of existing system that in reality is nothing more than a name change. FNMA is a tarnished name so rebranding it something different is all that will be accomplished but enough for Dem or Rep to say we did something to constituents who are not educated enough to know the difference.
