Fannie and Freddie negative outlook upgraded at Fitch

The move comes following Fitch earlier today returning the outlook on the U.S. government's AAA rating to stable from negative. "The housing GSEs are among the most active issuers in the capital markets, benefiting from meaningful financial support from the U.S. government."

Both Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC +0.8%) are now AAA with stable outlook.

    I strongly recommend to read the opinion of Richard "Dick" Bove who is widely considered the most respected banking analyst in America. You can find it here


    or you can google "Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Will Be Set Free"

    I can understand the government position about GSEs paying back the TARP funds, but the govt does not have the right to kill them if they are profitable. They sold stock to investors who hoped to make a gain on it. The govt can't do anything that is not in the best interests of the stockholders. Buy FNMA, FMCC and hold on to them. The courts are on your side
