I read your recent post in the "World Stock Funds-Are they a viable alternative?" thread that you prefer PWJZX. Currently, I am in SIGIX which I am not pleased with. Possibly because it is a value and/or EM fund.
I am looking to replace it with a large cap international blend or growth fund with less EM. I have looked at PWJZX and Morgan StanIey Inst Intl Advantage A symbol MFAPX (Schwab no-load). Hopefully I am not chasing returns.
Both see similar and to fit the bill. PWJZX seem to the better performer but also has a bit higher risk (M*, SD, higher P/E). Both also seem to be a bit less volatile compared to the likes of ARTYX and VWILX.
If you could give me your thoughts, that would be most appreciated!
Not sure this is a new change, I believe so, but I see now that DLEUX is avail at Fido ntf for the usual $2500 min. DSEUX is $100k and still $50... Just fyi. Performance since inception is not better for any time period (almost) than Euro indexes.
Sorry for your loss......er, "gain." It's happened to me several times, and I've never liked it. It would be nice, and in some cases quite advantageous, to see it building up earlier. Makes you appreciate the little things that Vanguard does. Vanguard is the only fund operation I know that lets you see, month to month, on their site. Otherwise, release of fund reports are staggered so that you can't tell, even if you pour thru all the numbers in da columns. C'est la vie.
