  • Retirement Strategy: How Much Money Will You Spend On Money? [View article]
    "For an initial "investment" of $180k, roughly 3 1/2 years ago, right here on Seeking Alpha, it now has an annual income from dividends of nearly $12,000. It has currently invested a total of about $300k in equities, plus a cash reserve of over $47k ready to deploy at any time to generate even more income.

    The total value of the portfolio is currently $348k."

    That means $42K in dividends... which is mostly in cash.

    so all this talk about dividends and for every $1 in dividend you made, you made $2 in capital gains (realized or unrealized)

    are you sure you're dividend speech is right?

    just saying.. undervalued companies

    There isn't a full federal guarantee on Fannie debt.

    They are not included in the Federal Budget because they are private companies, and their securities are not backed by the full faith and credit of the Federal Government.

    Arkham,

    I stand corrected. It's the Adams family.

    Arkham,

    Adam wrote the paper you're referring to.

    I'm sure he agrees with you.

    :-)

    "For those who are sophisticated in finance, neither Fannie Mae nor Freddie Mac had a “funding” problem. Because each GSE’s balance sheet was comprised of highly liquid Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) that pay off on a monthly basis, it should have been easy for either to pledge securities to raise money or to shrink their balance sheet and meet their financial obligations as they came due."

    Who do you think is willing to pay more for results?

    US/Treasury/FHFA (Government job)

    OR

    Perry/Pershing/Fairholme (Private job)

    Your argument doesn't hold water because no one really benefits from what is going on compared to how much everyone would benefit from undoing it. The government lawyers get job security, but I think that they'd be more happy staying busy with something where they are promoting the common good.

    So,

    You're still supporting the notion that HERA, a body of law that allows the USA to act as a creditor to Fannie and Freddie, somehow allows the USA to take 80% of two private businesses after forcing them to take money that they didn't really need and subsequently attempted to nationalize them in the process. It's like saying, hey, I know that I paid you back and I saw that you tried to take 100% and so, how about I get on my knees and beg you to only take 80% even though I paid you back because you're the government? I think you should avoid voicing an opinion on the warrants until the AIG situation plays out further.

    TL;DR
    Why shouldn't they take 100%? Why should they be given 80% when they've been paid back? Where do you draw the line? Do you think that the government should set a precedent where any company that borrows money should have its shareholders diluted by 80%?
