Fannie Mae Loses $14.8 Billion in 2nd Quarter of 2009

According to this Fannie Mae News Release, Fannie Mae Reports Second-Quarter 2009 Results, Fannie Mae lost $14.8 billion in the 2nd quarter of 2009. The news release states "Second-quarter results were driven primarily by $18.8 billion of credit-related expenses, reflecting the ongoing impact of adverse conditions in the housing market, as well as the economic recession and rising unemployment." Translation: loan defaults and foreclosures are killing them. Mark my words, this is only going to get worse.
