Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae
No love for these two stocks.
Even after Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson made a statement ensuring that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would remain as presently constituted to carry out their mission it was not enough to satisfy most investors.
Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac hold about $5 trillion worth of mortgage guarantees in this country, roughly about half of the 9.5 trillion mortgage debt. Their survival is paramount.
The trouble with these two companies is the latest depressing factor in the current credit and confidence crisis that the United States is going through at the present time. This type of negative information is depressing for stocks and weighs on the minds of investors. This type of mindset is similar to the early seventies when we witnessed the last prolonged bear market.
There are no quick fixes to our current set of problems, only trading opportunities.
We live in a capitalist society and these are the cycles that we go through every 30 to 40 years. This is the price we pay for living in a free society.
