The company said during the first quarter it had record total mortgage portfolio growth of $65 billion and retained portfolio growth of $34 billion. Freddie reported that its total mortgage portfolio grew at a 23% annualized rate from $1.138 trillion at December 31, 2001 to $1.203 trillion at March 31, 2002.

Freddie reported operating earnings of $893 million during the period, compared to $719 million for the first quarter last year and $853 million for fourth quarter. As reported under GAAP, net income was $1.413 billion during the first quarter of this year.           
Freddie said it increased its expectation for operating earnings growth in 2002 to be about 16% to 18%, which it says is consistent with the current operating environment and it’s desire to enhance the structure of its balance sheet for the future.
