ďIím expecting that Treasury and the administration will lay out their vision of what they think Congress should do, what they think I should do and what they think the Treasury and I should be able to do together in terms of amendments to the share agreements that allow an exit out of conservatorship,Ē Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Mark Calabria said in an exclusive sit down with HousingWire.

The report should discussion about amendment for NWS to end. Finally getting on paper it seems.

Starting on page 76 maybe a large portion of what we see in the plan.

You can't margin OTC securities like the PFDs.

It's true. That's in the Bible.  ;)

I've gone on margin buying Preferred against my other holdings before, in fact I am now.  :)

This is how I have understood Druckenmiller to have had the slugging percentage that he did.  When a trade is working, pile in.

Edit:  I will add that managing money professionally is different than one's own.  If you are in a daily liquidity product, obviously you cannot pile into Fannie and Freddie prefs.  If you are not, or you are managing your own money, I don't see why you cannot.  My understanding of Druckenmiller is that he was in liquid securities/currencies etc, presumably because he was managing money professionally. 

One more point.  I start with the assumption that everybody on this board is an adult and competent to make their own decisions.  Knock it out Orthopa.

true but no one currently has 100% in this. Letís say someone has 50% of his folio in BRK.B and 50% in this, then he can lend out his BRK shares to get the margin loan to buy more FNMAS.

But come on... why are people discussing this? Iíve seen countless times when inexperienced investors are myopia on only one scenario, the one that makes him money. They never bother to consider alternatives, and when people present a different view, they get pissed.
