Agency Issuance Rises 5th Straight Month

$100.1 billion in fixed-rate issuance during August

Sept. 1, 2010

By staff

A jump in securitization activity at the Federal National Mortgage Association was enough to offset a decline at the Government National Mortgage Association. It was the fifth consecutive month that agency issuance was higher.

Fixed-rate issuance of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities was $100.1 billion during August, based on data reported by eMBS.

Volume was higher than $94.9 billion in July and has increased each month since March, when the total was $84.0 billion. eMBS, which publishes data about the MBS markets, reported $146.8 billion in fixed-rate agency issuance during August 2009.

Year-to-date Aug. 31, fixed-rate agency issuance totaled $732.9 billion.

Fannie saw $42.9 billion in issuance last month, jumping from July's $37.5 billion. Fixed-rate issuance was $57.8 billion a year earlier at the Washington, D.C.-based company, while year-to-date activity reached $293.9 billion.

Freddie issuance was also higher, coming in at $27.3 billion in August compared to the previous month's $25.1 billion. But business was also lower than a year ago, when Freddie's issuance was $47.1 billion. Between January and August, issuance was $209.8 billion.

Over at Ginnie Mae, fixed-rate issuance slipped to $29.9 billion from $32.3 billion in July and $41.9 billion in August 2009.

The outlook for September volume at government-owned Ginnie is uncertain based on endorsement's by the Federal Housing Administration; after increasing from 124,754 endorsements for $22.3 billion in May to 150,911 loans in June for $26.4 billion -- FHA endorsements retreated in July to 144,514 loans for $25.9 billion.

From Jan. 1 to Aug. 31, Ginnie issuance amounted to $233.3 billion.
