Along with Fannie Mae, this mortgage finance giant was virtually nationalized in 2012. But since the tumultuous years of the global financial crisis of 2008-9, the company has found more stable footing. In 2016 it saw revenue increases thanks to a stable housing market and guarantee fees, paying billions back to taxpayers.
