Meanwhile equity short interest has been dropping consistently ( though Freddie recently reversed about the same time it went over Fnma ). Admittedly this is just a theory but makes sense to me. Even though this saga seems to drag on forever the news is definitely more positive than it was 1-2 years ago at least on the political front (no more wind down). Without the amount of naked shorting don't you think the price would be riding. A plan is being put together (by Govt) we just don't know what it is yet but I am hopeful. We may not get rich but probably not get completely screwed either. I am very skeptical of the congress doing anything useful but it would appear they need to have Corker and Henslaring out of the way as they might seek to block anything the banks don't favor. Ultimately I feel they will put it in play (out of conservatorship) and the price will go up - how much no one knows. Still need to figure out capital levels and how to recap , etc. this stock is only for people with lots of patience and maybe a good therapist .
