Investors in common shares of the mortgage giants Fannie Mae (NASDAQOTH:FNMA) and Freddie Mac (NASDAQOTH:FMCC) have been betting on the idea that the two agencies may one day leave government conservatorship and be private entities again. While the profits could be huge if it happens, the fate of these two agencies is far from certain.

In this segment from Monday's Where the Money Is, Motley Fool financial analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer take a look at mutual fund investor Bruce Berkowitz's recent demands that Fannie and Freddie stop sending the Treasury dividends, reinstate shareholder meetings, and once again move toward being listed on a major stock exchange.
