Hovnanian Enterprises Chairman, CEO and President Ara Hovnanian tells FOX Business’ Liz Claman that the housing market can adjust to the Fed raising interest rates at a steady pace.
US companies are trying to stop speculative investors from calling events of default on leveraged loans to get payouts under Credit Default Swap (CDS) contracts at the expense of other lenders as investor activism rises. Companies are trying to tighten loan documentation to limit aggressive investors from pushing agendas that benefit their CDS holdings above the interests of borrowers or other lenders. The move to add tougher new language to documents follows two highly publicized US court cases involving homebuilder Hovnanian and telecom service provider Windstream.
WASHINGTON—The standard-setters for the derivatives industry plan to limit the use of a product sold to insure against corporate defaults, following disputes over whether some companies engineered a default to trigger payouts to investors. The proposal by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association is intended to block moves similar to one made between Blackstone Group and Hovnanian Enterprises Inc. Last year, Hovnanian moved to default on its debts to produce a payout to Blackstone’s GSO Capital Partners LP. Hovnanian was healthy enough to meet its payment obligations, prompting a campaign by regulators to get the parties to back down from the arrangement before it was completed.

Trade issues will hang over the markets, but focus will quickly move back to the Fed and Chairman Jerome Powell when he speaks before Congress on the economy Wednesday. Stocks rallied on Powell's comments in the past week and markets began to price in a lower number of Fed rate hikes. The economy will also be of big interest, with Friday's jobs report and other data potentially revealing whether traders were correct in worrying about whether the Fed's forecast for four more rate hikes is too aggressive.

Persuading a company to default on debt to cash in on contracts insuring against that very prospect is an abuse that will damage the reputation of the market, according to the head of the U.K.’s financial watchdog. The instruments have come under scrutiny after a unit of Blackstone Group LP bought protection on the debt of ailing U.S. homebuilder Hovnanian Enterprises Inc. and offered it cheap refinancing in return for agreeing to default on a bond. “This is a practice that’s the wrong side of the line,” Financial Conduct Authority Chief Executive Officer Andrew Bailey said in an interview, without referring to Blackstone.
People are worried about stock buybacks. You don’t need a big corporation with a chief executive officer and layers of middle management and a human-resources department and stock options and a permanent headquarters to centrally plan and coordinate projects. People who want a project to happen can form an ad hoc team to do the project, and raise money from people who want it done, and do it, and receive the rewards, and move on to the next thing.

The corporate police.We have talked a few times recently about what it means to control a corporation. There are many theories: “Shareholder primacy” views shareholders as the owners of the corporation and directors and officers as their agents; “board primacy” views directors as the stewards of the corporation as an entity; modern “founder friendly” theories treat many corporations as the creation of entrepreneurs who can do what they like.
One weird thing about the U.S. financial system—and most modern financial systems—is that it is basically impossible to hold cash electronically. You can put your dollars in a bank account, but the bank could go bust.
Yesterday the Federal Reserve issued some fairly small proposed revisions to the Volcker Rule, which I guess we have to talk about. Here is an overview from Bloomberg’s Yalman Onaran, with the title “Why Wall Street Traders Aren’t Rejoicing (Yet) Over Volcker Rule.” The revisions tinker with the Volcker Rule’s requirements—removing a presumption that securities held for less than 60 days are held for “proprietary trading,” making it easier for banks to demonstrate that their market-making desks hold only enough inventory to meet “reasonaby expected near-term demand” from customers, etc.—to make compliance simpler, but don’t really change the basic structure of its prohibition on proprietary trading at banks. The standard criticism of easing the Volcker Rule is that it will allow banks to take more risks.
