    • Performance (per Businessweek Online Mutual Fund Scoreboard)

      Perform. 1 yr 3 yr 5 yr 10 yr
      DODGX 12.0 15.4 18.4 11.8
      TRRBX 16.2 13.6 15.6 N/A
      PEIDX 16.1 17.2 19.4 N/A

      T Rowe Price has outperformed for the past year, but 3 and 5 year returns tell a different story. I like DOGDX track record and think they will continue to perform well. I'd need to see multiple years of less than stellar performance to change from such a consistent winner.

      I'm not familiar with PEIDX, but it seem to offer attractive returns. Still DODGX and PEIDX are within spitting difference for 3 and 5 year returns. I don't think I'll be switching on that basis.

    • I tend to agree. I purchased DODGX as a large cap VALUE fund. Its new investment style (see news headlines) now allows the fund to have major positions in E-BAY and WALMART. The fund's YTD performance is dismal. If the fund is in a tax sheltered account, it may be appropriate to take out some money out and invest elsewhere .
