Why did Capital Group spend more than half a billion dollars and bought ton of commons and preferreds? Do you think they invested in speculation? As far as I can see most companies they hold are rock solid in their portfolio.  They aren't so called vulture hedge funds either. This fund is Virginia fund where both Fannie and Fredddie are located? Coincidence? Do they know something? I am not sure but it says College America 529? Taking childrens education for a ride if it is related to 529 plan administered in Virginia?

Who knows and unfortunately activity and research like this couldn't be more useless.  I think its time to put a conspiracy theory or that maybe the manager of a 529 fund "knows something"

Im going to have to go back and do some reading but if memory serves GM common was wiped in that "reorganization" or bankruptcy correct?  Anyone quickly know what happen to the preferred there?

I know this case is arguably different but it still involves the gov, UST, and shareholders.  Im going to start reading at a minimum here https://seekingalpha.com/article/135638-general-motors-officially-wiping-out-common-shareholders

FWIW Idk if anyone has a good recollection of what happened in each of the Financial Crisis bailouts but i think at a minimum may give some idea of what treasury might want to do to be additionally compensated.

At the risk of going a little off topic this list is way longer then I thought!

Fortunately, such research and activity is the only thing that matters than your constant posting on why commons should be zero. I have seen you post such here and routinely on stocktwits that commons are worthless. It doesn't matter what you say, you can spend your energy where you like: what matters is the activity such as this as it represents buying of more than 16.26% outstanding common shares of Fannie and Freddie combined in recent months and that too at the end of the year. They also bought a lot of preferreds.  Only thing I do know if that if commons do well, my preferreds will be at par.

Why is this not big news?

Mnuchin/Watt signed off on the letter of agreement (acceptable version of a 4th A) with NO drama. That is after Mnuchin said he expected the full dividends to be paid to Treasury and Corker vociferously took a shot at Watt. Truth is, anything can happen any time.

CP is not going to ring a bell the day before administrative action takes place. They did not do it before the letter of agreement. And if they take admin action, Congress will be unable/unwilling to stop it. Even if a few more senators become vociferous.

Most of us were blindsided by that agreement. In spite of being the most obvious move that had to be taken and in spite many of us having anticipated it.

Shares will fluctuate. But the most obvious thing right in front of us is Mnuchin wanting to cash in the warrants. Specially, to further consolidate the economy via fiscal policy (infrastructure). We are at the end of the line and 2019 may see a recession.

Great point.

at this point I am not expecting any administrative action until mid to late 2019, if then.  phillips just said so (based on confirmed accounts of the end of his speech).   the expected gain from warrants of ~100bn seems inflated (would require ~$15 stock prices and likely monetized only over multiple years).  also they likely want to do comprehensive reform with charter changes (away from implied company guarantee model), which requires congress.  finally, mnuchin has given himself until 2020 to fix this.

the bull case for common for 2018, as I now think about it, rests in a) a court victory b) ironically, corker's bill passing that gives the common a decent shot of recovery in receivership (sr pref would need to be cancelled) and/or c) a democratic sweep in November.

the turn of events going forward will contain surprises no doubt.  but as i sit here, i see a sen bk ctee that has a staff that seems to be taking direction from MBA-inspired fellow travelers (as per previous failed legislation attempts) and a fhfa director who has put out much more sensible and palatable view of things.  i'll take this hand as dealt

also, do you think its most likely Watt ran this white paper by Mnuchin?
