Public Service Announcement: Fannie & Freddie New OTC Tickers (FNM, FRE, FNMA, FMCC)

July 7, 2010 by Jon C. Ogg

Fannie Mae (NYSE: FNM) (OTC-BB: FNMA) and Freddie Mac (NYSE: FRE) (OTC-BB: FMCC) have both just made their ‘public service announcements’ showing the new tickers for the shares of their common stock and for the whole host of preferred shares that are heading to the OTC Bulletin Board.  Starting tomorrow, the new OTC-BB ticker will be “FNMA” for Fannie Mae and “FMCC” for Freddie Mac.  We now have all the sub-tickers for the rest of the preferred issues that also trade.  This probably won’t keep Fannie Mae’s nor Freddie Mac’s common stock from trending toward the real value of Zero, but at least you’ll be able to find where the shares are.

If you got stuck in the Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac common or preferred shares before the delisting from the NYSE, you might want to consider saving this page or printing the page out and keeping it for your records.  Once stocks migrate off the NYSE or even NASDAQ for a permanent journey on the OTC Bulletin Board or the Pink Sheets, these often become more and more difficult to find for investors.

We noted over and over for quite some length of time that Fannie (and Freddie) would have a long slow demise into nothingness.  This is not quite bankruptcy.  This is also not quite nothingness, it is somewhere in between Purgatory and Limbo.

It is now the year 2010.  In 2011 and 2012, and maybe beyond, many will still be trying to figure out how to track down their tickers for write-offs and outright losses when it comes to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
