For Q1 2018, Freddie Mac delivered $2.2 billion of comprehensive income, despite a major change in interest rates, according to their press release. It goes on to state that in a period with no significant items and little impact from legacy asset dispositions, this income demonstrated the increased stability of Freddie Mac's earnings.

The enterprise also continued a line of innovation in the previous quarter, through a steady stream of real improvements by all three business lines, the quarter results providing a particularly clear view of earnings capacity and the progress made in fulfilling its mission by creating a better housing finance system for lenders, investors, families, and taxpayers, the statement said.
