In the USA of A Uncle Sam dresses up as Santa Claus every day of the week for the American Home Buyer


He takes away all the risk, hurt and pain with wonderful 30 Year fixed rate mortgages


and no need for a deposit....97% financing!!!!!!! .


However the risk is not destroyed.....no no no.... it is merely transferred to a BAG HOLDER


Who it this BAG HOLDER you might ask????


Well through the magic of Freddie and Fannie its the US Taxpayer


(Well really right now the holder of US treasuries given the Governments taste for deficit financing).


What could go possibly Wrong?????


Subprime 2.0 perhaps????


Its gets even better


Because the banks got so burned in subprime 1.0 they are letting the non bank lenders with no capital take on the task of originating and servicing the loans


Isn't  that nice of them


No more nasty fines from the government or write downs if all the loans go suddenly south.


Well except for the NBL's that is,


But by then the Government will just be an unsecured creditor in the Bankruptcy courts.

I note that after the Government let up on its regulatory and fines avalanche on Citi Group and Bank of America their share prices doubled in fairly quick order.


Will the same happen with Wells Fargo???? which is currently being given the same treatment.


Highly probable.


There should be an ETF that takes advantage by investing in these sought of companies that are being subjected to the full force of the tender regulatory attentions of the Government!!!!


It of course needs a catchy name for marketing purposes.


Let me see.....The Tom and Jerry ETF.???? ........the Regulatory Waterboarding ETF?????


How about the TORQUEMADA ETF!!!!

This is what happens after a blow of top.


Not pretty not pretty at all.


I think bonds and stocks may follow in 2018.


Too much overvaluation and no returns.


2018 - the year of downside protection

CAPE of 33 for the S&P


Australia much cheaper with CAPE of 18.


I am not optimistic for US stocks in 2018,


Still optimistic for Australian Stocks.



The whole tax cut and repatriation of funds for stock buybacks has such a last gasp feel to it.
