Lehman bonds

I just read that pimco,Vanguard & Franklin hold alot of Lehman bonds.I own Pimco total return & will take a hit there.Also own Vanguard funds but not sure if there are lehman bonds in the ones I own.Fannie & freedie bond holders had to be bailed out because they were mostly owned by Chinese & Russian governments.The beggar nation has to keep them happy. The small investor gets screwed as usual.

To check wether your Vanguard fund owns any Lehman bonds, go the the fund's webpage on VG's website. Click on the "portfolio and management" tab, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "portfolio holdings". Click on "bond holdings" at the top of the page and scroll down the list (alphabetical order) until you find what you need.

A few examples:
VG Wellington: $200M
VG intermediate term investment grade fund: $57M
VG Wellesley: $32M

42 y/o, married, retirement portfolio = 43 x annual expenses
