For those that may have been concerned...
from Peter A. Chapman:
Judge Sweeney's order also denies without prejudice the government's supplemental motion to dismiss (Doc. 161) that attempted to segregate shareholders based on the dates they acquired their shares.

Order attached
"Come meet this motley crew of misfits, these liars and these thieves. There's no one unwelcome here. And that sin and shame that you brought with you, you can leave it at the door and let mercy draw you near." Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXXxLwxfo0U

Why does a bloomberg journalist keep focus on stock price and volume on a daily basis? I can now see the general perception on social media that he writes to manipulate stock. Very disturbing.

I've found it useful throughout my career to spend zero mental energy on the stuff that doesn't matter.  This falls in that category.  Emily, as a college student I know you're early in your investing career, so I would like to suggest you focus your energies on what is important and nothing more.

Ironically, somebody on a message board posting something that doesn't matter to me shouldn't result in me spending time to respond to it, but in this case my response might be beneficial to you.

question: a big if, but if they move on something legislatively or administratively in 2018, is it viable that the govt wouldn't have to settle lawsuits such as the one above in conjunction with such a move? or theoretically the govt could just act with a legal overhang?

i would answer this way:  1) mnuchin is a banker who is used to seeing hair (litigation risk) on transactions...and what you do when you are an experienced banker is remove the hair as/when you do the deal; 2) congress folks are less experienced with large transactions and will not have a clue as to the need to eliminate the hair when they want to do the deal...in fact, congress isnt even aware that GSE reform is a deal, not just a bill.

Craig Phillips will discuss the state of financial regulation and housing reform in the Trump Administration.  He will give the Administrationís views on the best path forward.

predictions from the big brains here on this board?

i'm guessing at this point he's got to mention more than the standard 'protect taxpayer and 30yr mortgage' line.  but I doubt he goes into deep specifics.   so I expect somewhere in the middle where he touts or refutes some specific concepts like:  explicit govt guarantee, multiple guarantors (i.e. competition), utility model, ginnie mae wrap role, and possibly how the transition to the new system works.  he'll likely reiterate their desire to go through congress.

I don't think he'll mention warrants in a positive light; at a minimum it's optically best to put proper policy above warrants as the driver of reform.

ok, thanks.  if i'm a congressperson, like tom cotton questioned, i'd like to have some conclusion on any large legal compensation overhang before signing off on a deal.  it's wild the courts take so long.

possible. or it could be done in conjunction with a ft opinion article.

craig phillips has had a year to work on this, and it's a subject he knows like the back of his hand.  with tax reform over, they are overdue to spill some beans.  this could well be a material week one way or the other.
