Freddie Mac CEO Casts Doubt on Joint $125 Billion Fannie Funding
Freddie’s outgoing chief executive officer says that’s easier said than done. Don Layton, who plans to step down July 1, said Tuesday that a capital plan issued a year ago by the companies’ regulator would require the mortgage giants to raise a combined $125 billion, in part by selling shares. To underscore how big a figure that is, Layton noted that the biggest initial public offering ever was Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.’s, in which the online retailer raised $25 billion.

Bill Ackman Comments on Fannie Mae
On March 27th, President Trump issued a memorandum to the Secretary of the Treasury and the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development directing them to craft housing finance reform plans. The directive to Treasury listed "ending the conservatorships of the GSEs" as its first goal and instructed Treasury to specify for each reform included in the plan "whether the proposed reform is a 'legislative' reform that would require congressional action or an 'administrative' reform that could be implemented without congressional action. For each 'administrative' reform, the Treasury Housing Reform Plan shall include a timeline for implementation." A response from Treasury is expected in the next two to three months.

Trump Says Freeing Fannie-Freddie From U.S. Control Is ‘Urgent’
Trump, speaking Friday at a conference hosted by the National Association of Realtors, said that the mortgage giants lack competition, that taxpayers remain on the hook for any losses at the companies and that they aren’t being run as well as they could be. The president’s remarks reflect the White House’s determination to release the companies from conservatorship, something lawmakers and policy makers have failed at for years.

Congress is likely to resist attempts by US president Donald Trump’s administration to privatise the two companies that guarantee most American mortgages, the most senior Democrat working on the plans has warned.

How About Leaving Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Alone?
The travails of Fannie and Freddie illustrate eloquently how a public-private partnership can go wrong. For decades, the two operated as privately owned companies, but with a congressional charter to guarantee payments of interest and principal on mortgage loans — guarantees that underpin the traditional 30-year fixed-rate loan, support a global market for U.S. mortgage-backed securities, and make homeownership accessible to millions of Americans. The crucial role that Fannie and Freddie play in housing finance led investors to think the government would always rescue them in an emergency.

Fannie-Freddie May Be Freed Without Congress, Calabria Says
The comments by Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Mark Calabria in a Tuesday interview are a clear sign that regulators and President Donald Trump’s administration aren’t counting on a legislative solution after more than a decade of failures to address the biggest piece of unfinished business from the 2008 financial crisis. Lawmakers will get “at least an entire Congress” to act before the companies are freed, said Calabria, who took over at FHFA last month.

Wall Street Tells Mortgage Buyers Wider Spreads Are a Point of Entry
Over the past week, Morgan Stanley advised investors to “go long” the sector and cited a wider 30-year Fannie Mae current coupon Treasury option-adjusted spread as a positive. JPMorgan moved to a neutral from an underweight recommendation due in part to the wider spread offered by the Fannie Mae 30-year current coupon to a blend of 5- and 10-year Treasuries. The Fannie Mae current coupon spread over a blend of Treasury 5- and 10-year notes, a popular valuation method for mortgage investors, has widened 12 basis points to 85 since March 26, when it closed at its tightest level since January 31, 2018, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
