    lehman exposure

    looks like one of the top holdings is lehman - is it fair to assume this is toast and there is no asset value nor dividends to come from this holding?

    • I copied the following holdings from Invesco as of 9/17. I don't see Lehman in the portfolio. Not sure which source is correct for PGF holdings.

    • If you are looking at the portfolio listed on Yahoo, it is quite old. If you go on the Invesco website and check the PGF portfolio as of 9/15, the fund had no exposeure to Lehman. There is exposure to B of A, CitiGroup, MetLife and others who are in the news today, but I think the current price of PGF is way oversold. Worst case, I suppose one (or even several) of the holdings may suspend their dividend until this blows over, but I have to think PGF is a good investment at these levels. Am I missing something?

    • yes, but that has been the case all week and lehman is not 40% of this etf so why it is going down like this is crazy.
