#1: American Century ULTRA perf

Posted on 2006-03-09 20:56:29 by Phil Schuman

In looking at my large growth funds,
I noticed that American Century Ultra
only turned in about 5% last year
vs my other large growth holdings...
ie - Fidelity Growth at 25%

Wondering if I should hold Ultra for the coming year ?

American Century Ultra 5%

James K. Glassman, writing in "The Secret Code of the Superior
Investor," says you should judge a mutual fund by the following
criteria.

1. a record of at least 5 years' consistent growth under the same
manager;

2. low turnover

3. low expenses

4. intelligently-balanced portfolio.

There is more to it than that, but this is where he would start.

Does the Ultra meet any of those criteria?

&gt; &gt;Bridgeway Aggressive 1, but also probably closed.
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;Also Wells Fargo Advantage Discovery has been looking great for about

&gt; &gt;Good luck,

I wish there was a grouping listed actually called - Aggressive Growth
:)
I'll have to take a look around...
I only have two funds at American Century -
Ultra &amp; Intl Bond - both in the basement.
I'll just cash out and add to my other holdings at Fidelity, Vanguard, &amp;
TRowe,
and do some consolidation - vs adding yet another fund to the mix.
