Doesn't beat around the bush, gets right down to the business of Christ laying down His life and conquering death for you, me, and everybody else that accepts Him. "Oh death, where is your sting? Oh Hell, where is your victory?" Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bJzhkWVANc

The current admin has majority in both congress and senate. I am sure many members of other party would also vote in favor of recap and release. IF they can't do it now. it can't get better after mid terms. Can it?

the purported reason they're waiting isn't to get a better set up - it is to maintain power for the ensuing 2 years and then use it.

if the enact reform prior to the midterms, they'll ruffle lots of feathers... so waiting post mid-terms allows them runway.

umm - it's a highly politically charged trade and you have to understand how the timing in DC works? It may not make an ounce of difference but emily was asking why they would wait. Well I gave one reason that may be why. It doesn't really have much to do with hope.

Market does not believe him anymore after the same talk over 2 years. What would change in next congress? Congress hasn’t done anything for last 10 years. The current admin at least not fight in court cases and release all the documents. At the very least, that is in their control. Not to mention they have control of both houses already.

My wild guess is that after the unexpected losses of a senator seat in Alamaba and a PA house seat, Trump decided to postpone housing reform until next year, to avoid headline risks that puts the mid term in danger. There are still lots of things Trump wants to do, such as the border wall, so if Republicans can stay in majority for two more years, he has a better chance to get his wishes fulfilled.

They should not screw this up and use anything they can. They need a broadway type actor as Cayne is. He changes his voice as 80 year old man, speaks slowly and portrays such that he has saved the whole world and they should all kneel to him. He is so dramatic and judges are afterall human being.

No clue. I have noticed that the dividend/price correlation has been weakning over the last few months. FNMAT in particular has gotten very weak compared to the rest of the prefs. Either a large position is being slowly unloaded, or a slice of the market is believing more in the possibility of a redemption or conversion that doesn't take stated dividend rates into account.

The FMCC/FNMA gap has opened back up after getting close to closing completely yesterday, but the strength gap between the Freddie and Fannie prefs remains small, the weakness of FNMAT notwithstanding.

My model doesn't include FNMAS or FMCKJ due to their liquidity premiums.
