Fab Universal Corp(NYSEMKT:FU) falls after Chinese fraud researcher Alfred Little issues a short report on the Chinese video content distributor, noting that "FAB's anti-piracy claims are a total and complete fraud."

Federal National Mortgage Association(OTCBB:FNMA) and Freddie Mac preferred shares are up sharply as Bruce Berkowitz takes to CNBC to talk up his recapitalization plans for the GSEs.

"We helped before with AIG, it can work with Fannie and Freddie." Other preferred shareholders with whom Berkowitz is trying to garner support include Blackstone, Perry Capital and GSO Capital. His plan is to purchase and recapitalize the mortgage-guarantee business of the GSEs and turn them into state-regulated bond insurers with no federal perks. The nearly $5T in assets and liabilities currently managed by Fannie and Freddie would remain with the government.
