    American Funds are good solid funds that may cost you bit on the front end if your initial investment is small and you buy the A shares, but if you are in this for the long haul, there really isn't a better fund family to be in. Good income, decent growth and they never fall as hard as other funds do when the bear shows his teeth.

    I was curious to see what my AWSHX did for this year, I did not have 1/1/16 available but I did have 1/20/16 to compare today's value with. Including what we just received in dividend, I was up 22.5% for the year and I had no buys or sells during that period. I am happy with 2016 but 2015 was flat (but so was the market). I taught college statistics for 32 years so I do know my numbers.

    I have been with the American funds for 29 years
    and if I had put all my money in those funds instead of
    playing the market I would be much better off in my
    retirement years.

    Latest - Checked and even though all markets are up approximately 5-6% in 2016 all 5 of my American Funds have lost money (under 0% return) for the year. PLEASE research before you buy any American Funds

    Terrible Funds - American Funds. I have been an investor in American Funds for 28 years and I must say the returns are awful. They always under perform the peer market. ALWAYS! I actually have a college fund for my child and over 9 years the fund is worth less than it was 9 years ago. AVOID AMERICAN FUNDS!

    They are correct in calling American Funds a DAWG, maybe a dawg with flees. I unfortunately have owned CAIBX,AWSHX,AGTHX and the euro trash one. AEPGX. 11 years ago I made the mistake of American Funds, don't do it!

    American Funds continue to be horrible. I feel I need to report all this so potential investors know what they are getting into. Yesterday the DIA was up 39 points (0.21%) and Nasdaq up 28 points (0.54%) yet ALL 5 of my American Funds mutuals were down. CWIAX down 1.10%, CGFAX down 0.74%, AMCPX down 0.20%, CNWAX down 3.13% and AWSHX down 0.16%. How bad can these guys invest???
