NAKED SHORT SELLING

Overview

The declining values in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac stocks

in 2007–2008 were the result of risky mortgages and foreclo-

sures. This led to a surplus of declining real property values

in the United States and a significantly negative impact on

equity prices and financial markets in the United States and

around the world. It’s likely that this topic will be studied

for many years, as Alan Greenspan, former Federal Reserve

Chairman, has referred to it as a once-in-a-century “financial

tsunami.”

On the following page are graphic representations of the stock

price per share for Fannie Mae (FNM) (Figure 1) and Freddie

Mac (FRE) (Figure 2), the holders of approximately 50 percent

of the mortgages in the United States.
