Fannie Mae sends another $10.2B back to Treasury

Net income of $10.1B is reduced by $10.2B payment to Treasury, leading to negative $0.03 per share figure in earnings report. After latest payment, Fannie (FNMA.OB) will have sent $105B back to taxpayers against $117.1B received.

Freddie Mac (FMCC.OB) - which yesterday reported a $5B profit - has sent back $41B after drawing $72B.

Fannie expects to be profitable "for the foreseeable future" and expects substantial income tax payments to accompany dividend payments to Treasury going forward.

    Freddie's DTA is still unrecorded. The two companies only need to record $14.8 billion in the next few Qs to reach NET ZERO. This is a critical time for reform.

    I am scratching my head on this one...Could someone please explain why the government is in the(financial) private sector? Why is this a publicly traded stock and yet investors see no upside on their investment?

    What's even more interesting is that the value of the government's common warrants is now about $11 billion based on the current market caps of each company and the 79.9% ownership the warrants bring. If they turn off this 100% dividend sweep, the value of the common shares would easily surge high enough to make paying back taxpayers in the next few months a certainty.

    Or the government can use the GSE's as a source of funds and keep the 100 dividend. I doubt there's much value left in any of this equity.
