The second quarter is turning out to be a really strong quarter overall. The broad trends are pretty clear from here with the S&P 500 (as a representative group) showing big revenue increases and smaller earnings beats than we have been seeing of late.
But some companies have stood out from the rest, reporting record revenue and earnings with more to come. And this has happened despite the supply-side constraints because demand has been overwhelmingly strong.
The delta variant remains a concern however, which could be why some stocks are still undervalued. And to be undervalued on the basis of earnings growth is actually an investment opportunity.
Here are a few examples-

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) regulates Fannie Mae (OTCQB:FNMA) and Freddie Mac (OTCQB:FMCC). FHFA just got a new director Mark Calabria and he got his first unbiased interview where he basically talked his playbook for what to do about the never-ending conservatorship. Based on his recent commentary, it’s reasonable to believe the recapitalization of Fannie and Freddie will begin later this year. The purpose of this article is to talk historical context for those of you new to the longest conservatorships in history and by far the largest.
- [By ]
Fannie Mae (OTCQB:FNMA) and Freddie Mac (OTCQB:FMCC) are two companies that have been giving all of their earnings to the government since the beginning of conservatorship in 2008. The government structured their equity position such that their senior preferred stock takes 100% of the net earnings above and beyond a discretionary $3 billion capital buffer at the enterprise level for both companies. The government’s liquidation preference on its preferred makes it so that a liquidation would result in not very much, if anything, for non-governmental shareholders.
- [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]
Fannie Mae (OTCQB:FNMA) and Freddie Mac (OTCQB:FMCC) are two companies in conservatorship that have recently been allowed to keep $3B each as part of a capital buffer. It’s amazing that $3B is good enough during normal business to protect these two companies from quarterly draws considering they have trillions of dollars in assets. An article from Benzinga came out recently that has caused me to switch back to preferred shares. I’m betting that the analyst has access to someone supplying him with information regarding the housing finance reform bill. I’ve been able to reverse engineer what I think the analyst is doing and it’s broadly Moelis with a twist. Instead of converting the preferred to common optionally after the warrants are exercised, it appears that the preferred would get converted to common before.
