Freddie Mac (FRE) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2010-12-31.

Freddie Mac has a market cap of $1.29 billion; its shares were traded at around $4.7412e+07 . The dividend yield of Freddie Mac stocks is 217.4%.

Highlight of Business Operations:

We had a net worth deficit of $401 million as of December 31, 2010, and, as a result, FHFA, as Conservator, will submit a draw request, on our behalf, to Treasury under the Purchase Agreement in the amount of $500 million. As a result of draws under the Purchase Agreement, the aggregate liquidation preference of the senior preferred stock increased from $1.0 billion as of September 8, 2008 to $64.2 billion as of December 31, 2010. Under the Purchase Agreement, our ability to repay the liquidation preference of the senior preferred stock is limited and we may not be able to do so for the foreseeable future, if at all. The aggregate liquidation preference of the senior preferred stock and our related dividend obligations will increase further if we receive additional draws under the Purchase Agreement or if any dividends or quarterly commitment fees payable under the Purchase Agreement are not paid in cash. The amounts we are obligated to pay in dividends on the senior preferred stock are substantial and will have an adverse impact on our financial position and net worth. We expect to make additional draws under the Purchase Agreement in future periods.

Our financial performance in 2010, including our net loss, continued to be impacted by the ongoing weakness in the economy, including the mortgage market. Our total comprehensive income (loss) was $1.2 billion and $282 million for the fourth quarter and full year of 2010, respectively, consisting of: (a) a net loss of $113 million and $14.0 billion, respectively, reflecting significant provisions for credit losses; and (b) $1.3 billion and $14.3 billion of changes in other comprehensive income (loss), respectively, primarily resulting from improved fair values on available-for-sale securities recorded in AOCI.

Our total equity (deficit) was $(401) million at December 31, 2010 due to several contributing factors, including our dividend payments on our senior preferred stock, which exceeded total comprehensive income (loss) for the fourth quarter of 2010. To address our deficit in net worth, FHFA, as Conservator, will submit a draw request on our behalf to Treasury under the Purchase Agreement for $500 million.

During 2010, we paid cash dividends to Treasury of $5.7 billion on our senior preferred stock. We received cash proceeds of $12.5 billion from draws under Treasurys funding commitment during 2010. These draws were driven in large part by changes in accounting principles adopted on January 1, 2010, which resulted in a net decrease to total equity (deficit) of $11.7 billion. As a result of these draws from Treasury under the Purchase Agreement during 2010, the aggregate liquidation preference of Treasurys senior preferred stock increased to $64.2 billion at December 31, 2010. See Changes in Accounting Standards Related to Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets and Consolidation of VIEs for additional information related to our changes in accounting principles.
