Federal National Mortgage Association (FNM), also known as "Fannie Mae," is a government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) chartered by the United States Congress to support liquidity and stability in the secondary mortgage market, where mortgage loans are purchased and sold. The Company participates in the secondary mortgage market by purchasing mortgage loans and mortgage-related securities for its mortgage portfolio. It also makes other investments that increase the supply of affordable housing. The Company is organized in three business segments: Single-Family Credit Guaranty, Housing and Community Development (HCD), and Capital Markets.

In the report, the analyst notes:

"FNM is continuing its efforts to support the housing market by working with lenders, loan servicers and the government to help homeowners avoid foreclosure and provide liquidity to the mortgage market. The Company has focused its foreclosure-prevention efforts on the implementation of the Making Home Affordable Program, which is designed to significantly expand the number of borrowers who can refinance or modify their mortgages.

"The Federal Reserve is currently in the process of buying more than $1 trillion in mortgage-backed securities and debts sold by FNM and Freddie Mac (FRE) and the Federal Home Loan Banks. This program is considered to be successful in its design to provide support to the mortgage lending and housing markets and to improve the overall condition in the private credit market. The Federal Reserve last month said it will slow down purchases to extend the program until next March."
