    I just sold amecx,abalx,abndx and used the money to buy indivual stocks paying 8-12% interest. Tired of paying mutual funds for non-performance. I was thinking of selling my caibx and buying BRK-B. over the last 5 years BRK-B has outperformed CAIBX ! Total agreement with you on Uncle Sam !!!

    I have had this fund since March of 2005. I am in the red by 10% which included reinvesting. I am looking at transfering the money into Bershire BRK-B as over the long haul a bigger return with out all the capital gain taxes. Any thoughts ??

    I am not discounting the fact BUT numbers do not lie. The theory is good but bills have to be paid. This is purly speculative. Until numbers can show a concrete base , we are rolling the dice!

    There is a lot to be said for your statement. I too in the long run believe the potential is promising. Thanks for the input.

    No question about the Olympics will generate dollars. I had read that because of the air quality problem many factories will be closed prior to the Olympics. Workers will have to be paid for sitting idle not to mention the water situation making a hard situation compouded by the Earth Quake. No doubt the potential is there and I am currently holding my position.

    One might want to consider the recent events in China especially with the devastation with the Earth Quake and now with the Olympics a short time away to be closing factories, diverting water from Farms and food for the Olympics. This does not sound like a good economis future at least for the short term. Yes I agree the rebound is there for the long term. However wages are rising along with cost and as we all know that the market is also driven by sentiment. Any imput ?

    I currently own NALFX and am looking at returns & expenses. It seems PBW fee is a lot less with a better return than NALFX ? What am I paying for ??

  • sgriskonisjr by sgriskonisjr Mar 6, 2008 9:22 AM Flag

    I could use some advice. I currently own FICDX but am looking to maximize my gains or lower my costs. I see that EWC costs close to half of FICDX and seems the returns are the same. Am I missing something here ??

    Is this fund closed to new investors now?

    I too have been told many a times that a fund is closed through Wachovia only to find out that Wachovia does not have an agreement with that security or particular fund. I have found that the Broker may not know since I have pushed the issue with Wachovia only to find out that this is the case that Wachovia does put out misleading info.regarding the status of certain funds. So I opened another account with Ameritrade so that I can buy what I need. You will find out that usually you can not buy everything through one broker. Hope this helps

    Be Patient ! We have a good manager and I do believe the market is being driven by sentiment and headliners than actual fact. We are in a good sector with a manager with an excellent track record. There was really no place to hid. Do you really think all these bussiness fell off like the market ?? People have a tendencey to over dramatize and there has been a great deasl of profit taking. Short of the world ending I do believe this fund will fly.

    Many of the China funds have taken a dive. There has been no hiding. However the world is still growing and this fund will give a Great! return. Be patient ! The market has been driven on sentiment more than the actual facts. There are a lot of headliners out there to get the reviews but China is still growing and will continue to rise. Great long term sector !

    We know that investing in a company or in a sector is different than investing in Wall Street. But history has showed us eventually the piper gets paid. Looking at the market we have had a good run up, a lot of profit taking and gambling going on with stocks. We do know the history of the market where the lowes get lower but the higher gets higher afterwards. I am not talking about every individual stock but in general.
    We know that Fuel & Food are two items all human beings need and as the world develops a greater demand will occur.
    Farming has been on the decline for decades and will continue and the mega farms will dominate price not like the family farm that is at the buyers mercey !
    Long term this will be a good investment. We have been all used to the quick upward movement in the past few years that many of us have forgotten our patience and not expecting a 20% gain in a day or month, as been the case more often that not in the market.
    Perhaps when you think the stock is at its low especially now Buy a Position and wait to see if it goes lower especially the enviroment of the market today.
    I to become impatient as well, it but we need to pratice restaint and decisipline which is a hard thing to do.
    The Market doen't stink or does this fund. Some just got in at the wrong time. Welcome to Wall Street ! Id do expect this will have great returns in the future.

  • TRAMX shows it strength on a bad day only down .01 cent. This fund is heavey in financials and very little movement in a down market. Also seems like some area in this fund is investing in US Banks ?? I think this is going to be a Great fund for long term. Bought today !

    You might want to also look at CGMFX also which although they are both similiar in energy but when real estate becomes a better investment they will differ. The same manager for both. Perhaps you might want to have a little of both.

    Great article. Just bought a position in CGMFX and was considering taking a position in CGMRX. Seems Heebner is on the ball. However in looking into both funds it seems the energy play is similiar(no complaint in making money}but it seems both funds owe its success to energy. Would I be foolish to invest in both ??
