Max Wiethe, Real Vision editor, joins Gabriella Heffesse, managing director of ACG Analytics, to discuss how the upcoming election could tip the scales for the trade on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (FNMA and FHLMC). Heffesse walks viewers through the events that FNMA and FHLMC have gone through in the past several years after the U.S. government bailed them out during the Great Financial Crisis, how the past has led them to the circumstances they are in today, and how the outcome of the election could greatly affect their future. She also explains why the current case in SCOTUS concerning Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac adds an additional element that ultimately favors investors.

    Fannie and Freddie are on track to be public, free from consevership and decent investments with the Trump administration. Otherwise, they current stakeholders are screwed with all the cash flow ie money going to the Treasury..
