    Thanks for the article, John.

    Some of their figures seem incorrect, though. I'm dollar cost averaging into PRHSX and the 1, 3, and 5 year returns in the article are way off as of Nov. 12, 2019 (which was about half way through the big run up since October). From 01-01 to 11-12-2019 PRHSX had actually returned 18.03% . I wonder if it's an old article and they hadn't updated the figures?

    Yes to your observations.........the linked site is not an investment site; but a catch-all site for various stories in the hope of ad-click $, IMO. Many other features at the site are dead end and some from 2018.
    The FSMEX info is incorrect as to minimum investment $ and beyond this, the fund has been CLOSED to new money for some time.
    NOT much going on with the "write ???" for healthcare........
