Bond insurer decline could be opportunity, says MKM Partners
After President Trump said all of Puerto Rico's debt would have to be wiped out, MKM PArtners analyst Harry Fong does not expect the debt to actually be wiped out. He believes that taking this step would violate the principles of contract law and could destroy the municipal bond market. The analyst adds that the bond insurers will not face liquidity issues if Puerto Rico's debt is wiped out. He believes that the decline in their stocks could prove to be a buying opportunity. He keeps Buy ratings on Assured Guaranty (AGO) and MBIA (MBI), and he maintains a Neutral rating on Ambac (AMBC).

BTIG says PREPA request rejection a 'huge' positive for Assured Guaranty, MBIA
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer said that U.S. District Court Judge Laura Taylor Swain's rejection of the financial oversight board's effort to prime the bondholders of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, or PREPA, is a "huge" positive for municipal bond insurers Assured Guaranty (AGO) and MBIA (MBI). Each have significant insured exposure to PREPA's debt and the rejection of PREPA's effort to gain approval for a $1B DIP loan issued by the Puerto Rico government that would have primed the utility's bondholders was a big win, said Palmer. He also believes the ruling had broader implications for them and fellow municipal bond insurer Ambac Financial (AMBC), which has no insured exposure to PREPA but still filed a motion opposing the DIP loan. MBIA shares are up 6.8% in early trading while Assured Guaranty is up about 3.8%.
