underperforming today's rally - AGAIN, AGTHX has been underperforming this rally the past two weeks, everyday. This fund is a bust; I am getting out. An index fund could do better and not cost as much $.
you check it out americian funds are by far the cheapest funds out there the problem with this fund is it is so large 169 billion it does have a hard time to keep 100% invested capital runs all americian funds it charge's 0.97 a year.and yes i do own this fund and over 12 years i stated with 9k in 08 sold and put in american fund high yeild bond fund till oct 2010 back in growth fund 57k as of today.you have to manage your fund just like you would a stock. good luck happy returns
Unfortuantely, this fund is a big box holder and is now only offering two good picks out of the ten top holdings. What a shame AF continues to retain such a losing analyst. My assumption is AGTHX of the future is now of the past. Time to move on myself...
This fund has a very solid top ten stocks, over 20% in it's portfolio. This alone guarantees success. I'd think twice about an index fund, as when this fund grows, it will grow in leaps & bounds and no index fund will come close to mirroring it's return.
