Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may have lost their way to their personal hands. But as things progress, some large companies in the mortgage industry could improve.
The Supreme Court ruling that the government’s grip on the interests of the housing giant does not exceed the statutory authority of the regulator and that the president can easily replace the head of the regulator is associated with the actions of Fannie Mae and Freddie May . I gave 2 hits. 40% from last week. This means the Biden administration can appoint a new chief supervisor instead of maintaining a takeover of the Trump administration, which was trying to free the company from government protection during its tenure.
However, many stocks in the broader mortgage sector have actually traded higher. For them, Fannie Mae and Freddie May’s path of overhaul under the previous administration hasn’t always been so good for their economy.
In order for government-funded companies to prepare to attract capital from private investors, measures such as increasing capital requirements were needed, but they still needed to increase their profits. For many sectors, this was a recipe for higher rates and less access to collateral. At one example last year, news of soaring pandemic fees plunged the actions of mortgage originators.
Under President Biden, GSE regulators will reverse some of these measures or implement other initiatives with the primary goal of making mortgages cheaper and more widely available. There is a possibility of Rocket Cos because GSE cuts fees and broadens the types of borrowers and loans. , UWM and many other qualified mortgage lenders have the potential to grow in market size.

Supporters of the previous administration’s approach may say that the current state of the GSE has shrunk or distorted the market by discouraging the growth of other types of mortgages. Some large banks may have seen their mortgage market share increase with a smaller footprint of publicly guaranteed loans, but they also have the benefit of cheaper credit risk reduction.
Mortgage insurers such as MGIC Investment offer additional credit protection for GSE guarantees. KBW analyst Bose George said they could benefit if the Biden administration takes more action to help homeowners end the default when the pandemic ends. Absent. As the amount of flow through the system increases, so does the insurer. Long-term, but more expensive or more limited guarantees from Fannie Mae and Freddie May may have expanded the role of private mortgage insurance.
The volume is already quite large historically, so a new direction for GSE is unlikely to trigger another boom in mortgage stocks. Originators also face much more pressing concerns, including rising interest rates, limited supply of housing and declining loan profitability. Investors weren’t in high demand, even with the radical overhaul of Fannie Mae and Freddie May, according to Jeffreys analyst Ryan Kerr. Additionally, Mr. Biden’s full plans for the entity remain unknown.
But overall, the policy shift towards cheaper or broader services for Fannie Mae and Freddie May is being welcomed by many actions in the mortgage industry, which already manages a lot. Let’s do it.
