Andrew Abraham

andy-0101 My name in Andrew Abraham. I have been investing in commodities and managed futures since 1994. I adhere to the philosophy of trend following. Trend following stresses a disciplined approach to commodity/ futures trading. Successful trend following and commodity futures investing requires patience, discipline and actively managing the risk. What sets me apart from other traders is that I am not only concerned about the return on investment but how much risk I will have to tolerate to achieve my goals.

More Bonuses For Failure-Freddie Mae & Fannie Mae


It is almost like the movie Jaws, once you think you can go back in the water the Great White Shark appears again. We are experiencing virtually the same situation in bonuses paid out for ineptitude. It seemed very clear there was a backlash…an outrage at the bonuses given to AIG employees who single handly destroyed a major company and almost the the US economy now Fannie Mae is giving bonuses as well. The difference is the linguistics. They are calling them “Retention Payouts”. Unfortunately failure is being rewarded again. I forgot the shares of Fannie Mae only went from $35.50 down to yesterdays .80 cents. That is a great reason to retain these employees.ֲ 

Fannie Maeֲ is due to pay “retention bonuses” of between $470,000 and $611,000 this year to some executives. ֲ Fannieֲ disclosed plans to pay retention awards this year of $517,000 to David Hisey and $470,000 each to Thomas Lund and Kenneth Bacon.ֲ Depends on how you look at it…these bonuses are not as outrageous as the bonuses paid by AIG …but still any way you look at it close to half a million dollars is still alot of money…and worse …it is for terrible performance.ֲ 

The icing on the cake is that the FED has agreed to provide as much as $200 billion of capital apiece to Fannie and Freddie in exchange for preferred stock. Both companies have said they will need a combined $60 billion of that money to cover their losses so far. ֲ Where do you think that money is coming from? One guess? Us the taxpayer and yet again we are paying bonuses ( Retention payouts) for extreme ineptitude.ֲ 


How do you feel that your tax dollars ֲ are being used in this fashion?
