Big Investors Shore Up Stock in Fannie Freddie

first_imgBig Investors Shore Up Stock in Fannie, Freddie in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News, Secondary Market October 13, 2014 553 Views Two major investors have shored up their stock in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac after a judge dismissed two lawsuits regarding the sweeping of GSE profits into the U.S. Department of Treasury, causing the price of GSE stock to plummet.William A. Ackman, head of Pershing Square, and Bruce Berkowitz, head of Fairholme Capital, have both added to their respective stakes in the two GSEs.  In the last week of September, Judge Royce Lamberth threw out lawsuits filed by Fairholme and Perry Capital against the government claiming that the sweeping of GSE profits into Treasury was illegal. The judge ruled the sweeping of the profits was legal under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act.Pershing Square filed two similar lawsuits against the government in mid-August, and those suits are still pending. Fairholme and Perry have each filed an appeal of the judge’s decision to dismiss their lawsuits. Pershing Square no longer regularly reports its holdings in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but it is known that the New York-based hedge fund is the largest non-government owner of GSE common stock.”Fairholme’s conviction in its Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac positions has not changed, and Fairholme actively monitors all of its positions – particularly during periods of market overreaction,” a source familiar with Fairholme said.Pershing Square could not immediately be reached for comment.The share price for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac experienced gains of more than 5 percent last week after the announcements by Ackman and Berkowitz, but the price of shares for both is still down by more than 30 percent since the judge’s ruling.The government seized control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac back in September 2008 at the height of the nation’s financial crisis, after which Treasury provided $188 billion to bail out the companies. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have since become profitable and have returned $218.7 billion in dividends to taxpayers. The Obama administration wants to phase out the two GSEs, which have been in conservatorship since the government takeover six years ago.center_img Share Fairholme Capital Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Investors Pershing Square 2014-10-13 Seth Welbornlast_img read more

Report Details Highlights and Lowlights of 2014

first_imgReport Details Highlights and Lowlights of 2014 Forecast Home Prices Housing Supply Mortgage Rates New Home Sales 2014-12-24 Tory Barringer December 24, 2014 472 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Newscenter_img It’s been a rollercoaster year for the U.S. housing market, but analysts at say the patterns seen in 2014 could be the foundation for more stable growth in the coming year.Earlier last month, the company predicted a comeback in first-time homebuyers as young adults prepare to take the next step in their lives amid improving economic conditions. With job growth and home inventory making strides toward recovery and mortgage rates remaining historically low, expects the momentum seen this year will carry over into the next.”Overall, this year’s housing market showed steady advances over 2013 with significant improvement in key housing metrics, despite some remaining challenges,” said Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for “Increases in job creation and gross domestic product have had a significant impact on consumer confidence and home buyer demand. Paired with historically low interest rates, these factors kept properties moving quickly.”In its year-end review, outlined some of the major trends seen in 2014 that signal a strengthening housing recovery, including:Improving economic fundamentals: After coming off the start line in a stagger, the U.S. economy bounced back from a weak first quarter and showed the strongest growth seen in years. On Tuesday, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported that third-quarter growth came in at an annual rate of 5.0 percent—a reversal of Q1’s contraction of 2.1 percent. Meanwhile, monthly payroll numbers continue to look encouraging, inspiring more confidence among Americans.Continually low mortgage rates: While interest rates remain above the rock-bottom lows seen in 2013, they’re still averaging around 4 percent for 30-year fixed-rate products, even as the Federal Reserve takes a less dovish approach to monetary policy. attributes the trend to global economic weakness, along with actions by the European Central Bank and other Asian banks to battle recessionary conditions.Decelerating home price gains: While ongoing price increases had some commentators worried about a new housing bubble in the making, the large-scale slowdown of home price growth has brought the trend more in line with historical performance.Declining distressed sales: Foreclosures and short sales continued to fall throughout the year—and while that might have put a drag on total sales volumes, the share of non-distressed transactions grew over last year, indicating a healthier market.Investor pullback: Going hand-in-hand with the drop in distressed sales, the retreat of investors from the housing market created more room for traditional buyers, driving down competition and putting a cap on prices.On the other hand, there remain a few headwinds that are likely to be a problem in the next year:Tight credit standards and limited mortgage availability: While there’s been some debate on the issue of loosening lending criteria, mortgage data over the past 12 months indicates credit standards have seen little change, preventing many households from taking advantage of low interest rates. By’s estimate, the “tight spread between approved and declined FICO Scores shut out nearly half of the potential population this year.”Tight inventory: While inventory has seen some progress at the national level, supply has still failed to keep up with demand. In many markets, the months’ supply of new and existing homes remains under the normal balance between a buyers’ and sellers’ market.Low levels of first-time buyers: According to recent data from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the share of first-time homebuyers fell this year to its lowest in close to three decades. On the bright side, “the first-time buyer share is showing signs of modest improvement by the year-end,” noted NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. As federal agencies push to expand low-cost housing options, advocates hope to see a greater presence from first-timers in 2015.Record levels of renters and climbing rent prices: The national homeownership rate continues to look weak at 64.4 percent, indicating more adults are renting rather than buying. Unfortunately, as rent increases outpace home price growth, analysts are concerned that today’s renters are unable to save to become tomorrow’s buyers.Lack of recovery in homebuilding and weakness in new home sales: The new home market has struggled over the course of the year, and despite increasing confidence levels, homebuilders aren’t breaking ground on as many homes as some would hope—especially in the lower price tiers. “New home prices increased substantially again this year, revealing that higher priced product is limiting the demand,” said.

Fannie Mae Upgrades Desktop Underwriter

first_img Fannie Mae has announced the implementation of enhancements to its Desktop Underwriter (DU) Version 10.0 aimed at providing more simplicity and certainty to lenders.DU 10.0’s goal is to help lenders by using trended credit data—the first widespread use of trended credit data in the mortgage industry—to provide enhanced credit risk assessment, new underwriting capabilities to serve borrowers with no traditional credit, and to serve borrowers who own multiple financed properties.“Desktop Underwriter transformed the industry when it was introduced over 20 years ago. (These) DU 10.0 enhancements highlight the continued investments and improvements we’re making in our technology to be better partners for our customers, and to provide access to mortgage credit for creditworthy borrowers,” said Marianne Sullivan, SVP, Single-Family Business Capabilities, Fannie Mae. “We continue to listen to our customers and make improvements to DU that take into account how our lenders tell us they want to work and to help them better serve today’s market.”The enhancements to DU 10.0 include:Using trended credit data for credit risk assessment: Considering monthly payment amounts a borrower has made on revolving accounts for the past two years; providing lenders with a more comprehensive risk assessment by offering more insight on a borrowers’ tendency to pay off revolving lines of credit each month; and giving borrowers more control over their credit evaluation and increasing the likelihood that DU will recommend borrowers for approval who regularly pay off (or pay more than the required amount) of revolving debt.Automated underwriting for borrowers with no traditional credit: DU 10.0 helps lenders more efficiently serve borrowers who are without a traditional credit history by automating and streamlining an underwriting process that was previously manual and time-consuming. The new system requires at least two non-traditional credit sources to be verified, and at least one of these sources must be housing-related.Automated underwriting for borrowers with multiple financed properties: The enhancements provide lenders with a simplified multiple financed properties policy, simply for the underwriting process for lenders, improve operational efficiency, and help ensure fewer eligibility overlays, automate remaining eligibility requirements, and determine required reserves for all financed properties. in Featured, News, Secondary Market Share September 27, 2016 564 Views center_img Desktop Underwriter Fannie Mae Lenders 2016-09-27 Seth Welborn Fannie Mae Upgrades Desktop Underwriterlast_img read more

Cyprus marks 64th anniversary of Eoka struggle Updated

first_imgA call for unity was issued on Monday by the Eoka Fighters Association as Cyprus marked the 64th anniversary of the April 1 start of the 1955 to 1959 struggle against British colonial rule that led to the island’s independence in 1960.Church services, gatherings, marches, wreath-laying and other events were held islandwide from morning on Monday, as political parties issued statements paying tribute to those who died during the struggle.The Eoka Fighters Association, in their statement, called for domestic unity. “This is thelink that must connect all of us in a single voice that has a definite and clear goal, which is to save our country,” the statement said.Greek Cypriots, it added, must unite to claim a Cyprus solution that is “fair and sustainable based on the principles of the UN and the EU”.The association also called for the withdrawal of Turkish troops and settlers, and the return of all refugees to their homes.“We are claiming the creation of a normal state, as is the case with all the free and democratic states of Europe and elsewhere,” it added.It called on the political leadership to come up with a common position on the Cyprus issue and to coordinate their actions instead of infighting.“Conflicts, and talking about a solution of the Cyprus problem via television creates nothing harm,’ the association said.On Monday, the main church service was held in Nicosia, led by Archbishop Chrysostomos at Saint John’s cathedral in the presence of President Nicos Anastasiades and other officials.Later on, a prayer was delivered at the Imprisoned Graves within the central prisons and wreaths were laid on the graves of those who died during the 1955-1959 struggle.Torchbearers from the Limassol reservist commandos’ association carried a flame from Chlorakas, where Grivas first landed, and placed at the monument.In Larnaca, celebrations began with peals of bells in all churches of the town and with the hoisting of the flag at the Eleftheria Statue Square. Events were also held in Paphos.  In each town the government was represented by cabinet ministers and other senior officials to mark the occasion.In January this year the UK government announced it had reached an out-of-court settlement to the tune of £1m over claims by 33 Eoka veterans who said they were tortured whilst in detention during the insurgency.It stressed that the £1m (€1.1m) settlement did not constitute any admission of liability and set no precedent in respect of any potential future claims against the UK government. Legal costs will be assessed at a later date.The British government said the decision aimed to turn a page in the UK’s relations with the island.“It is a matter of regret for the UK government that the transition of Cyprus from British administration to independence should have been preceded by five years of violence and loss of life, affecting all residents of the island,” the British government said in a statement.The case concerned claims filed against the UK government in July 2015 by 35 individuals (since reduced to 33) after Foreign Office documents released in July 2012 described claims of torture and abuse during the Eoka insurgency.     You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

Reuters Related News Sex tests for athletes essentialise sexual differences result in discrimination Yet again a female athlete has been barred from competing As per news reports the Sports Authority of India (SAI) inferred that she is not as female as female athletes ought to be She suffers from hyperandrogenism: her testosterone levels are equivalent to males’ or higher than females’ thus giving her an “unfair advantage” over her female competitors While calling out a female athlete must be a déjà vu moment for the SAI one hopes this is not a replay of the Santhi Soundarajan episode In 2006 Santhi an Asian Games-winning athlete was stripped of her medal after tests revealed she was not quite female She survived a suicide attempt only to work as a labourer at a brick kiln In Santhi’s case it was the presence of a Y chromosome Now it is the athlete’s high testosterone level that turned the tide against her In its defence the SAI simply points to policies of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) However given the history of debacles in the sex determination of athletes (remember Caster Semenya) who is fully female or male To make contests “fair” sex-segregated sports require that only “real” females contest in say female events not males posing as female Starting from the late-1960s sex tests became mandatory for all female athletes The IAAF made female athletes parade nude in the presence of physicians who examined their genitalia Those who passed this test were authorised female and handed the “Certificate of Femininity” Facing flak for these humiliating and imprecise “tests” the IAAF and IOC started chromosomal testing in 1967 This search for the Y chromosome in females was projected as an “objective” verification of sexual identity As a result many were disqualified from sports and publicly shamed including the Spanish hurdler Maria Jose Martinez-Patio Like other sportswomen Maria paid a heavy price till she proved that her chromosomal condition did not give her more testosterone or “unfair advantage” By the time Maria was reinstated her sporting career had nearly reached the finishing line Laboratory tests have since confirmed that the XX and XY distinction can be nebulous making many women and men fail such tests By the late-1990s the IAAF and IOC ended mandatory sex tests and moved on to “better” techniques Androgens especially testosterone became the means towards definitive truth about sexual identity It was claimed that testing for hyperandrogenism would root out the hormonally male and flag the use of performance-enhancing drugs Testosterone was viewed as a more accurate “sex testing” benchmark; it did not comment on the sex of an individual but merely the hormonal composition However scientists have sharply disagreed about the extent to which testosterone dictates athletic performance or sexual identity To cite one example in a paper in the American Journal of Bioethics Katrina Karkazis from the Stanford Centre for Biomedical Ethics and her co-authors have argued that sex cannot be assumed to be a mutually exclusive simplistic polarity There are at least six markers of sex — chromosomes gonads hormones secondary sex characteristics external genitalia and internal genitalia None of these is binary or decisive Each has variations both within an individual and among “males” and “females” High or low testosterone depends upon a range of intertwined factors material biological and psychological Given these variations how can there be a level playing field Scientific research shows that individuals respond differently to the same level of testosterone Besides if high testosterone is naturally occurring like other biological traits how is it unfair Are long limbs or sharp eyesight unfair advantages too Another disturbing aspect of these androgen tests: the criteria used by the SAI to single out athletes for testing Often it is athletes who appear unfeminine/ less feminine External traits such as body hair lack of breasts deep voice or gender non-conforming behaviour are flimsy grounds if not homophobic What about intersex or non-cis athletes It sounds anachronistic to even say that sex and gender are neither always congruous nor meant to be Far from serving their purpose sex tests have merely reinscribed popular and flawed understandings of sexual identity Instead of “fairness” they have resulted in discrimination essentialising sexual differences Instead of weeding out male athletes they have weeded out women with non-normative sexual traits Instead of embracing the naturally occurring sexual variations these tests flag female athletes are stigmatised sometimes bringing their personal lives and careers to naught Instead of demanding female athletes undergo treatments to lower their testosterone can we not accept that there are multiple not two sexual identities and no perfect “male” or “female” Why should athletes pay the price of our oversimplified and erroneous understanding of sex The writer is a Fox International Fellow at Yale University and a doctoral candidate at JNU Delhi

recovery (Source: File Photo) Top News Tapping into the microbiome of runners and rowers scientists have identified a bacteria that inhabits their digestive tracts and may aid in athletic performance a finding that can help develop probiotic bacteria for applications in performance and recovery The results showed that the bacteria that inhabits the digestive tracts of the athletes may help develop probiotic supplements that could help them and even amateur fitness enthusiasts recover from a tough workout or more efficiently convert nutrients to energy “We are more bacteria than we are human The bugs in our gut affect our energy metabolism making it easier to break down carbohydrates protein and fibre” said Jonathan Scheiman post-doctoral student at Harvard Medical School “They are also involved in inflammation and neurological functions So perhaps the microbiome could be relevant for applications in endurance recovery and maybe even mental toughness” Scheiman added For the study presented at the 254th National Meeting and Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in Washington the team collected fecal samples on a daily basis from 20 athletes training for the 2015 Boston Marathon to capture how the microbiome changes between performance and recovery When they compared the pre-race and post-race samples the researchers found a sudden spike in the population of one particular type of bacteria after the marathon “This bug’s natural function is to break down lactic acid” Scheiman said During intense exercise the body produces more lactic acid than usual which can lead to muscle fatigue and soreness This bacteria could potentially help with that The researchers are now feeding the bacteria to mice to measure its effects on lactic acid levels and fatigue In another experiment the researchers compared the bacteria from ultra-marathoners to those found in rowers training for the Olympics They found a type of bacteria in ultra-marathoners that can help break down carbohydrates and fibre — which is key during a 100-mile run — that was not present in the rowers suggesting that different sports may foster niche microbiomes For all the latest Lifestyle

man accusing him of using a weapon of mass destruction in Monday’s bombing of a Manhattan commuter hub Akayed Ullah 27 was charged in a criminal complaint filed in Manhattan federal court with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization bombing a public place destruction of property by means of explosive and use of a destructive device Ullah told police interviewers after the blast that “I did it for the Islamic State” according to court papers filed by federal prosecutors Ullah began the process of self-radicalization in 2014 when he began viewing pro-Islamic State materials online and carried out his attack because he was angry over US policies in the Middle East prosecutors said New York officials on Tuesday also charged Ullah with terrorism accusing him of setting off a pipe bomb as investigators in his home country questioned his wife Ullah was charged with criminal possession of a weapon supporting an act of terrorism and making a terroristic threat under New York state law the New York Police Department said The federal charges which are expected to take precedence over the state charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison ‘AMERICA DIE IN YOUR RAGE’ On the morning of the attack Ullah posted on his Facebook page “Trump you failed to protect your nation” Ullah’s passport which was recovered from his home had handwritten notes including one that read “O AMERICA DIE IN YOUR RAGE” Investigators at the scene found a nine-volt battery inside Ullah’s pants pocket as well as fragments from a metal pipe and the remnants of what appeared to be a Christmas tree light bulb attached to wires Ullah told investigators he built the bomb at his Brooklyn home one week before the attack filling the pipe with metal screws to maximize damage He chose a work day to target as many people as possible Ullah began viewing Islamic State propaganda online as early as 2014 including a video instructing supporters to carry out attacks in their homelands if they were unable to travel overseas He started to research how to build an explosive a year ago Investigators in Bangladesh were questioning Ullah’s wife according to two officials who

anonymity There is no evidence that Ullah was in direct contact with any militant group or any other militants the source said Investigators believe at this point that he is a genuine lone wolf radicalized over the internet It was unclear where he got the faulty bomb design Authorities in Bangladesh began to track down Ullah’s family soon after news of the attack broke and they first found a cousin said a third official Mahiuddin Mahmud “We learned from his cousin that he had a wife and a baby in Bangladesh” Mahmud said Slideshow (9 Images)The cousin Emdad Ullah told Reuters that Ullah
