Rate It: Will Fannie Make Investors Rich?

The outlook at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac isn't quite as bleak as it once was, but it still might not be a place for investors that are faint of heart.

    I"m tired of seeing FMCC go up 10% a day. Should have put in $500 at 14 cents. Thats all I would have gambled on it at that price. Damn.

    Logged on to see/hear about a good sell plan for shares of FNMA we bought at 0.76 cents. They are now climbing toward 3.00.

    Other Fannie Mae listings also way up.

    Would rather hear about the actual trading going on and whether or not people are profiting, and should/should not take a May profit than listen to the kind of stuff you guys talked about.

    Way way too hypothetical and simplistic.
