I guess I am having trouble differentiating between Freddie Mac shareholders and bond holders. Looking at DODBX they refer to shares held but then on the side it states coupon rate giving me the impression that they are holders of Freddie Mac Bonds. Just a rough adding of Freddie and Fannie it appears to be estimated number of 4 billion of the 28 billion in the fund. So if it was a complete loss it would be about 14% of the porfolio. But like you said we are probably looking at a smaller percentage of that 4 billion so therefore not something I personally will fear. I have yet to find the break down on the Fidelity MMF. I will keep looking.

As always thanks for your response and thoughts.
