The K-F76 Certificates will not be rated, and will include two senior principal and interest classes and one interest-only class that is also entitled to static prepayment premiums. The K-F76 Certificates are backed by corresponding classes issued by the FREMF 2020-KF76 Mortgage Trust (KF76 Trust) and guaranteed by Freddie Mac. The KF76 Trust will also issue certificates consisting of the Class B, C and R Certificates, which will be subordinate to the classes backing the K-F76 Certificates and will not be guaranteed by Freddie Mac.

    Warren Buffett said earlier this month that he hadn't seen anything like the coronavirus pandemic. A couple of weeks later, and it's only gotten more dire as infections mount around the world and the stock market continues to spin out of control in both directions. “While Buffett is well known for weathering the worst market downturns and coming out stronger, the last several weeks have been just as painful on his portfolio as it has on the broader market,” Bespoke explained in a post noting that the average stock in his top holdings is off 37%.

    Throughout these topsy-turvy times of scary health news, city lockdowns and daily market moves of 5% or more in both directions, there's been one comforting constant. Corporate insiders — executives and directors who buy shares in their own company — are loving this pullback. Since the S&P 500 index (SPX) Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and Nasdaq Composite Index (COMP) really began falling apart after March 5, insiders have been heavily buying all the areas that will supposedly get hit the hardest by this coronavirus and the COVID-19 illness it causes.

Following the double supply-demand shock of the past weeks, the industry had to quickly switch back to survival mode, just as it was expecting an uptick in upstream investments this year, for the first time in five years. Canada's oil and gas sector now faces an existential threat – losing even the little competitiveness it held onto in the wake of the previous oil crash.

While the further liberalization of the investment banking and money management industries in China has been overshadowed by the coronavirus crisis, wealth firms are nonetheless laying out plans to tap a market poised to reach $30 trillion in assets by 2023, according to consultant Oliver Wyman. Starting April 1, they can apply for licenses to set up wholly-owned mutual fund management firms for the first time.

    Blink and you may have missed it — the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is in a bull market, reached on a day when data showed a record number of people filing for unemployment benefits. The 21% gain in the last three days ends what was just an 11-day bear market for the blue chips. The broader S&P 500 (SPX) has advanced a mere 18% over three days (the best stretch since 1933), leaving it shy of the 20% advance from the low that marks the informal definition of a bull market.

    Worry, problems and strife: Investors fear markets not out of woods despite big rally

    High-profile investors from BlackRock Inc to billionaire William Ackman have turned more bullish on equities in recent days, as unprecedented stimulus from the Federal Reserve, a $2.2 trillion stimulus bill signed Friday, and a call by President Donald Trump to get the U.S. back to work in weeks rather than months sparked the biggest weekly rally in the Dow Jones Industrial Average since 1938. "People are trying to time the bottom and that's indicative of an early bear market, when people have hope," said Richard Bernstein, chief executive officer of Richard Bernstein Advisors. Bernstein said he was a "data hawk" and was looking for a combination of "improving fundamentals" - eyeing the basic health of the asset, rather than trading patterns - and "total disbelief," adding that in 2009 investors did not believe the bull market was real.

It's too late to use diplomacy and artful negotiations to share the burden of output cuts that are now inevitable. The pumping free-for-all unleashed by Saudi Arabia and Russia is important for the long-term shape of the oil industry, but, as my colleague Javier Blas pointed out here, it's a sideshow to the havoc being wrought by the lockdowns crippling economies worldwide in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
