In the report, the analyst notes:

"FNMA reported a net loss of $11.5 billion in the first quarter of 2010, compared with a net loss of $15.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2009. Including $1.5 billion of dividends on senior preferred stock held by the U.S. Department of Treasury, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $13.1 billion, or ($2.29) per diluted share, compared with a loss of $16.3 billion, or ($2.87) per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2009.  

"U.S. mortgage rates dropped to a record, the 11th straight week of matching or setting a new low, reducing borrowing costs for homebuyers as demand slumps. The average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.32% in the week ended today from 4.36%, Freddie Mac said last week. That was the lowest since the McLean, Virginia-based company began compiling the data in 1971. The average 15-year rate was 3.83%, also a record."
