The investors assumed that the company has fully repaid the taxpayers and it’s time for their share. But, according to researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the company is not yet free from its obligation of repayment to taxpayers.

Structure debated

Separately Senate Banking Committee leader indicated that Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp (OTCBB:FMCC) will remain under the U.S. conservatorship for at least two years as structure of a new housing finance system is debated. Richard Shelby said that it would be better to keep the mortgage-finance company under federal control than to pass a bill allowing the government to guarantee mortgages. Earlier Shelby opposed a Senate bill that suggested the replacement of Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp (OTCBB:FMCC) and Fannie Mae with government insurers, which will absorb losses behind private investors. It is up to Shelby to propose an alternative route to structure the mortgage finance companies.
