U.S. likely to recapitalize Fannie, Freddie: report

The U.S. Treasury is growing increasingly likely to recapitalize Fannie Mae (FNM.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) and Freddie Mac (FRE.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) in the months ahead on the taxpayer's dime, Barron's reported in its August 18 edition.

The weekly financial newspaper said that such a move could wipe out existing holders of the agencies' common stock, with preferred shareholders and even holders of the two entities' $19 billion of subordinated debt also suffering losses.
