PRGTX seems to defy gravity

This fund seems to defy gravity, up 23% during the last year, up 98% during 3 years, up 153% during 5 years.

Any opinion?


  • It's been a fine fund through four sets of manager changes. It's made good money this year through its e-tail investments. And Price doesn't encourage silly risk-taking.

    One quick reminder, though: based on Charles's inception-to-date data, it took the fund a little more than 10 years to recover from the tech crash that bottomed in 2002. That's comparatively good but still sobering.

  • Another tech heavy fund (without the international component) with similar 1, 3, 5 and 10 year returns is FBSOX. And, it managed to sidestep the tech meltdown from 2000 to 2002.

    I'm liking it, having started a position over the summer since I had next to no tech exposure and wanted something other than herd-based holdings. PRGTX is (to me) fairly eclectic in holdings, doesn't have the "usual suspects" overweighting their top 10, and has a nice mix of domestic and intl focus. I only wish it paid quarterly versus annually, to capitalise on volatility in the sector, though.
