Freddie Mac to Announce Q4, Full Year 2014 Financial Results Thursday

first_img Freddie Mac will report its fourth quarter and full year 2014 financial results in a conference call with the media on Thursday, February 19, beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern time, according to an announcement from the GSE.The conference call will be concurrently webcast and can be accessed by following this link. All materials related to the call, including a replay of the webcast, will be available at www.freddiemac.com/investors.Freddie Mac has enjoyed 12 consecutive quarters with positive earnings, according to the GSE’s Q3 financial report released in November. In Q3, Freddie Mac’s net income was $2.1 billion – up from $1.4 billion in the previous quarter.The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) took both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae under conservatorship in September 2008; at the time, the Enterprises needed a combined $188 billion in government bailout funds to keep afloat in the midst of the financial crisis. In August 2012, the terms of the bailout agreement were amended and nearly all of the GSEs’ profits have been swept into the U.S. Department of Treasury since.At the time the Q3 financial results were released, Freddie Mac said it expected to pay about $2.8 billion in dividends to Treasury in December. That would bring the combined amount the two GSEs have paid to Treasury up to $225.5 billion, nearly $40 billion more than they received in bailout funds in September 2008. The amended bailout agreement stipulates that the GSE profits continue to be swept into Treasury, a practice that has drawn the ire of GSEs shareholders who believe they are being shortchanged. Two of the GSEs’ largest shareholders, Fairholme Funds and Pershing Square Capital Management, have litigation pending against the government over the use of GSE profits.For the first nine months of 2014, Freddie Mac provided $201 billion of liquidity to the mortgage market and has provided $2.4 trillion of liquidity since January 1, 2009 – about four months after the conservatorship began.

To contact Pizzolato, email [email protected] With the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Richard Cordray’s, term coming to an end next year, there has been a lot of discussion on whether or not the Ohio native will make a run for the governorship, despite remaining silent on the matter.This weekend the director attended the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, where he spoke about income inequalities that Americans face. He did not, however, speak about his potential gubernatorial bid, according to the Washington Post. Cordray has been under fire to go public with his intentions.The most recent prod came from Senator Jeb Hensariling (R-Texas), who wrote the director demanding, “Your categorical denial that political consideration have informed any aspect of your decisions, orders, and communications relating to the rule; Your assurance that all records relating to this rulemaking will be preserved; and Confirmation that you intend to serve your full statutory term as Bureau Director, or, if you do not intend to serve your full term, confirmation of the date on which you intend to resign from office. The letter was spurred when two separate publications reported on separate instances that Cordray was attempting to fast-track rules through the CFPB.The Republican Governor’s Association has also attempted to obtain information via the Freedom of Information as to whether or not Cordray had been in contact with the Chairman of the Hamilton County Democratic Party, as well as copies of correspondence he may have had from his @consumerfinance.gov email.When asked about his intention at the Labor Day festivities, Cordray brushed the question off, according to the Washington Post. “I don’t have anything to say about that,” he said.

Will Recent Executive Order on Evictions Protect Homeowners?

Related Articles August 11, 2020 1,583 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago President Donald Trump on Saturday signed an executive order he said would protect Americans from eviction, along with other items.While some housing experts and advocates are grateful for the effort, others say the White House could do more.President Trump stepped in due to a deadlock among lawmakers charged with drawing up a COVID-related stimulus relief bill. This week, housing advocates weighed in on Trump’s “Executive Order on Fighting the Spread of COVID-19 by Providing Assistance to Renters and Homeowners.”David Dworkin, President and CEO of the National Housing Conference (NHC), and Maxine Waters, Congresswoman (D-California) and House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman, each published letters this week analyzing Trump’s latest order.The National Association of Realtors (NAR) also commented on the executive order by way of a statement from NAR President Vince Malta—he expressed gratitude for the president’s effort to help struggling homeowners but also concern that the order may not go far enough.”While NAR appreciates and is supportive of White House efforts to ensure struggling Americans can remain in their homes, we are disappointed in the administration’s decision to not tie an eviction moratorium with rental assistance—as they must be,” said Malta, a Broker at Malta & Co., Inc., in San Francisco.”We now strongly urge the administration and Congress to a come to swift, bipartisan resolution that protects both renters and housing providers.”Upon signing the order, Trump said, “I am protecting people from eviction.”Both Dworkin and Waters remained critical of the order, however, because it does not extend the eviction moratorium that expired at the end of last month.A different federal eviction moratorium is still in place, but it is set to end on August 31. That one, imposed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, pauses foreclosures and evictions for single-family homes that have mortgages backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.The executive order calls on the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to “consider” whether an additional eviction ban is needed.Waters, who called the order “misleading,” added that the order does not provide any new federal funding to help households struggling to afford housing costs.Dworkin says Trump’s executive order on evictions “is not enough to forestall an eviction crisis.”A lengthy moratorium, as some have sought, also would not be a good long-term solution, Dworkin added, because it ultimately hurts landlords and puts borrowers and renters into deep debt.“If mass evictions are bad this month, they are just as bad next month,” he said. “Ultimately, only comprehensive federal rental assistance can resolve an eviction crisis.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Eviction eviction moratorium Executive Order FHFA NAR NHC President Donald Trump  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
