  • I love this. So much hypocrisy. Tax payers should get all profits because they take on risk of guarantee, but we want you to buy riskier loans and that risk is on you. Gov't wants out of mortgage market, FHA working with FNMA to provide more loans. Private equity should provide liquidity, no leverage to get banks to create programs like FNMA is being asked to do.

    Just sheds more light that FNMA is a invaluable tool in market and no one is going to support dismantling the only entity that helps lower/middle class. Tighter regulation and oversight. Simple and practical. May take a while but slowly I think that is becoming clearer.

    " tin foil hat " that's exactly what I think when I read some of these posts. Even blocking as many as I have, there is so much #$%$ you still need deal with.

    There is nothing going on with this right now so there should be a handful of posts at best, I was thinking for future.

    Thanks I have been using investor Hub, but have not found any others worthwhile.

    Can someone recommend another board where real intelligent people have conversations based in finance and not aluminum foil hats

    This board is worthless. It is either irrelevant topics, or the stock move 10/20 cents and there are 80 stupid posts for a 10/20 move, and lastly the worst people mention anything about shorting.

    It is simple. When investors want to buy big bulk shares, doing so on the open market cause immediate increase in stock price, and afterwards the stock pulls back. By doing it this way, he gets all his shares at a set price and removes the volatility that would be caused from putting in open market his accumulation.

    If there was a bid for 50 million dollars worth of shares I know someone wants them, supply and demand dictate I should ask for higher price.

    The alternative is to buy in small increments over time to not bring attention.

    So in answer to your question, I believe he wanted the shares now and not over months. Why well that is feeling is he knows the the value but also knows the risk with government terms. By acquiring so much, he now has gone public and will have a major influence on government next move

  • Wake up, a big part of the reason liquidity is tight is the uncertainty around FNMA. As long as that looms liquidity is going to be tight because banks will not increase lending until they know the landscape of the mortgage market. Uncertainty is never good for the markets.
