Is this the reason for the spike? Official stance/support by the WH?

Yes.  Share prices were flat/down a little until this hit.  I doubt many people have seen the document yet.  Buckle up.

fnmas up 10%
fnma up 2%

both on heavy volume.  any thoughts on disparity?

my thought is that the "reduce footprint" reference is scaring common.  has anyone seen what WH means by this term?  if it is just reduce FnF's loan portfolio and become a guarantor only, well hell this has already been largely done (about one trillion dollar reduction already since FC)

Common value depends more on pro-forma business model and the "out years" - i.e. if the reform materially changes the economics of the business model the equity value could shrink. The preferred however are a prior claim - it's hard to see a scenario where the prefs don't get par or very close to it as long as the conservatorship ends.

So who are the most important Government stakeholders in everyone's opinion, in terms of a decision on GSE reform? FHFA, OMB, Treasury, anyone else?

agreed, though until one sees how FnF exit conservatorship and builds up capital, it is hard for me to see how common does not do well given current price of  $1.50 and treasury long it as well

I was very tempted by the common if there are only 2 guarantors, but more than that will mean a race to the bottom on fees and it will only be a matter of time before the big banks capitalise a guarantor and charge rock bottom fees.

I hate the idea of multiple guarantors. They're not necessary and risk won't be priced correctly. Imo the best route is 2 guarantors competing on price and heavily regulated to make sure there's no collusion.  Sad!

as a policy matter, ending the duopoly makes sense.  as an investor in FnF you would love for the duopoly to continue.

but as a PRACTICAL matter I think the risk is way overblown.

first if fhfa is going to require >3% capital for FnF, it will require same for new entrants.  which company is going to have a comparative advantage in raising new capital?

FnF will remain full fledged business operations in all 50 states (no reference to breakup or transitioning FnF themselves into multiple guarantors) that has shown it is executing on all cylinders lately. bypass investing in FnF for some new startup?...even a startup that is backed by TBTF banks? and a startup which is not owned 80% by treasury which presumably wants to make as much money as possible on this privatization process?

if as an investor I am going to invest in one guarantor (and why would I invest in more than one), which would look better to me?
