Beginning Fidelity National Finance

I started a position in Fidelity National Finance, FNF, yesterday at $19. This is a play on the refinancing boom that the government is trying to push through very hard, but this play should also get steam from the fact that there will be a significantly large volume of foreclosure sales in the near and intermediate term.

FNF is essentially a title insurer, so what they are concerned with is not home prices falling or rising, but only how many transactions (title change/tranfers/new titles issuance) occurs. And going forward the volume should rise, it has little room to fall right now.

Good pieces on this here,here and here
