writes "Federated Faces Money Market Fears". It says, "Federated Investors shares have struggled of late, and at least two analysts blame the threat of tough new rules affecting money market funds, which they say are overblown. Stricter rules on money market funds would be bad news for a wide range of companies, including BlackRock, Invesco, and Legg Mason, says Michael Kim, analyst at Sandler O'Neill. JPMorgan Chase and Vanguard also have giant money market funds. However, Federated's exposure to the money market business is more concentrated, accounting for 67% of its revenues so far in 2009."
