Debate on whether Congress could get involved in the efforts to free Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

Could Congress get involved in the efforts to free Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from conservatorship? A letter that was sent by two senators to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Mark Calabria suggests it might.

However, there are reasons to believe Congress won't step in to prevent Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from exiting conservatorship.

Analysts debate on why the results will not matter for the government-sponsored enterprise

Some have argued that if President Donald Trump loses the election, Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC) will be left in conservatorship instead of recapitalized and released. However, Tim Pagliara of CapWealth Advisors has argued that even if Joe Biden wins the election, he believes the government-sponsored enterprises will still be released.

Now it seems analyst Dick Bove of Odeon Capital agrees with him, although he disagreed before. He said in a recent report that regardless of election's results, the winner needs the housing market to be strong, and that requires Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to be in

A brief overview of the lawsuit involving the government-sponsored enterprises

The Supreme Court has decided to hear the Collins case lawsuit involving Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC) in December. That lawsuit could provide some major breakthroughs for all the litigation involving the two government-sponsored enterprises.

Odeon Capital hosted a conference call with Brian Barnes of Cooper & Kirk, who was one of the main authors of the brief submitted to the Supreme Court by the plaintiffs in the Collins case. Analyst Dick Bove explained the plaintiffs and the government's arguments in the case, adding that he believes the lawsuit will be groundbreaking for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

Since the Federal Housing Finance Agency proposed the capital rule for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at 4%, the housing finance market has been in an uproar

Since the Federal Housing Finance Agency proposed the capital rule for Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC) at 4%, the housing finance market has been in an uproar. Numerous experts have come forward and said that it's too high.

The government-sponsored enterprises themselves even publicly disagreed with it, making the first time they have ever opposed what the FHFA has said. While some believe the FHFA will push through the rule at the proposed 4%, one longtime preferred shareholder believes Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's capital rule won't be finalized at that percentage.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have now officially said that they oppose the capital rule proposed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency

Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC) have now officially said they oppose the capital rule proposed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency. The government-sponsored enterprises agreed with critics who said the capital rule would increase costs for borrowers.

Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac oppose FHFA's capital rule

In a note over the weekend, analyst Dick Bove of Odeon Capital pointed out that Fannie Mae Chief Financial Officer Celeste Brown said recently that she had reservations about the FHFA's capital rule as it was proposed. He also argued two more points, although his views are controversial.

Fannie Mae (FNMA) ("FNMA", or "Fannie") and Freddie Mac (FMCC) ("FMCC", or "Freddie," together "the GSEs")

Fannie and Freddie, along with their regulator and conservator FHFA, have continued to make substantial progress toward ending their conservatorships. While FNMA and FMCC common shares have declined 29% and 27%, respectively, year-to-date, possibly due to uncertainty created by the upcoming presidential election, we believe that both companies are now firmly on a path towards exiting conservatorship and raising substantial first-loss private capital.

Financial advisors for the eventual recapitalization of the GSEs are now in place, with FHFA hiring Houlihan Lokey in February, and

Interest rates at 50-year lows are creating record demand for conventional mortgages insured by Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC). Delinquencies are also rising with Covid-19, but remain manageable given conservative underwriting; pre-tax, pre-reserve earnings; and reinsurance. To assure safety and soundness, The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is following Congress’ direction in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act to recapitalize and release Fannie and Freddie from conservatorships. Legal advisers and investment bankers are working toward their reprivatizations. Taxpayers have been paid in full and received 80% ownership in each company for Government loans.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac junior preferred shares could increase by at least 100% if one analyst is correct. Dick Bove of Odeon Capital said Josh Rosner of Graham Fisher & Co., who has testified multiple times in front of Congress about the government-sponsored enterprises, discussed them with the Odeon team.

Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC) have already proven themselves essential to the U.S. housing fi nance system, which is a critically important bulwark for the U.S. economy. The current disarray in the non-agency residential and rental housing mortgage market, which has recently occurred as a result of the crisis, will remind the Congress and the American people of the critically important function that Fannie and Freddie perform during periods of economic stress. The crisis has also made manifestly clear the need to recapitalize Fannie and Freddie so that the private sector becomes the fi rst loss

Fannie earned $3.9 billion insuring $3.0 trillion of mortgages in the latest three months. Freddie earned $1.8 billion insuring $2.1 trillion of mortgages. Fannie and Freddie are expected to earn and retain billions of dollars each year – charging less than one-half of one percent to guarantee affordable, long-term mortgages.

In July, FHFA Director Mark Calabria said in a press interview that the Trump administration’s housing finance reform plan was “essentially done,” and that he expected it to be published by August or September. This represents a delay from prior comments by Dr. Calabria and other officials who indicated that the report would be released as early as June. Press reports have suggested that the delay is at least in part due to other initiatives at Treasury given the number of urgent matters that have been occupying Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s time, most notably, the trade negotiations with China.

In 2008, Fannie (FNMA) and Freddie’s boards of directors agreed to federal conservatorship and U.S. Treasury investments earning 10% of principal, $2 billion in fees, and 80% ownership stakes. Since then, Fannie and Freddie have earned and paid $300 billion to our U.S. Treasury, which is $24 billion more than promised. It is now time for Fannie and Freddie, like all others forced to take U.S. Treasury money during the last financial crisis, to keep what is rightly earned, recapitalize, and exit conservatorship.

I think investors should sell or trim their holdings in Fannie Mae, Five9 Inc. and Coca-Cola Consolidated Inc. The month of May is a reasonable time to do it.
