Its my understanding McConnell may move forward with the Senate nomination of Calabria today.

Thank you! When will we know for sure?

who has more political risk right now, WFC or GSEs? extra credit if you show your work

so my point here is that all banks have some political risk (which is why they spend so much on lobbying), and Wells Fargo has a huge amount of political risk....and WFC is going to chug along just fine (though its execs may get bitch slapped)

just thinking if GSEs are along this same continuum of political risk or just in a qualitatively worse position. I ask this now, assuming that the wind down the GSE movement is dead.

I would argue that the GSEs have far more near-term political risk as an investment than the big banks. However, assuming a recap occurs, I believe the opposite will become true. Every couple of years banks such as WFC are involved in some sort scandal or untoward activity. LIBOR rigging, banking for the cartels, and opening up accounts without consumers' knowledge are the kind of improprieties that end up on CNN, HuffPo, etc... With Fannie & Freddie by contrast, most Americans don't really know what they do or have emotionally intense opinions about them. Thus, in the long run, I envision Fannie and Freddie having less political risk than say WFC.

@ahab

Fair enough. Now for the GSEs in the short term does your thinking change if you consider that for the next 5 years the fhfa Director is someone who has made clear, and letís say reiterates, that the NWS is illegal?

Calabria not on today's closure.  :(
Is there any limitation on how many people can be in a closure? I know there are lots of judges to be confirmed. Can't they put everyone on closure today?

@cherzeca
These facts certainly color my thinking and I see good reasons for optimism in the administration's approach. Although, in regards to Calabria's confirmation and the start of the recapitalization process, it's not over until the fat lady sings. I think that's why the market refuses to budge too much on the preferred share prices. We as shareholders have been hoping for years to wake up one day to a decisive change (legal or administrative) in the status of these entities. Until that day comes, risk and uncertainty will endure in hearty quantities.

If Calabria not voted on in time Otting could always stop the sweep too.

That's true but I don't expect that to happen.
Technical analysis shows me if we don't get a setup within the next two weeks, then there may not be a setup to buy anytime soon. Right now it looks to be getting ready. That's accidentally inline with the 3/31 deadline. I am flat since 2/26. We'll see what happens.

Anybody expects:

1. a ruling between now and 3/31?
2. announcement by Otting/Calabria by 3/31?
3. a curve ball out of congress before 3/31.
4. a coordinated attack by fellow travelers for the next 2 weeks.

Right now, we are about to hit the jackpot quarterly if prices stay here. But history has been of sudden deep reversals. Nerve-wracking spring break. Countdown -T 20160 (minutes).
