As talk about Enron continues, mutual fund companies have begun answering questions and defending their positions in the energy trader as the media begins to examine how the collapse affected mutual fund shareholders.

Earlier this month, BusinessWeek Online published an article on mutual funds that held a substantial amount of Enron stock called "Burned in Enron's Flameout: Mutual Funds." In his weekly radio show on KTLK-AM in Denver, senior Lipper analyst Don Cassidy was asked how much mutual fund shareholders were affected by Enron and how much they should be worried about further "hidden bombshells." Other articles about mutual funds' stake in Enron have appeared recently in SmartMoney magazine and InvestorsAlley.Com.
