Laura Lutton: One of our favorite funds in the health-care category is [TICKER: VGHCX ] Vanguard Health Care ( VGHCX ). This is an actively managed fund, and it gets a Gold rating from Morningstar's analysts. That means
I am overweight VGHAX (first equity investment about 15 years ago) and own none of PRHSX. Based on 10 year total performance VGHAX has done slightly worse than the Health index and shorter the period of comparison, the worse VGHAX performance. I do not understand M*'s fascination with rating it
It hasn't so far, but Obamacare is just getting started. I wonder what the long term effect will be?
Can't seem to find any news as to why this healthcare fund plummetted 8% yesterday (12/22). Any insight would be appreciated?
Meanwhile make money. Beat the S&P 500 soundly is my goal. I would be interested in others ideas. FBIOX 18.18% FSPHX 17.69% FSRFX 14.67% FPHAX 12.12 % PRHSX 9.72% PRGTX 9.69% FSAIX 6.16% FNCMX 4.14% VGHCX 2.8%
3%, so 33% is managed by Wellington Management. We like their style. Now, we are considering adding maybe 5-10% of VGHCX (managed by Wellington) to the portfolio and wonder if that would be too much overlap of holdings that are already covered
VGHCX and other HC funds have outperfomed for a few years now compared to the S&P; from what I read a lot of that was due to anticipated Obamacare signups. With the Republicans vowed to attack Obamacare, is it time to pull back on H.C. allocaton?
On 4/2/14, a Moningstar new item stated that VGHCX was upgraded from 3 to 4 stars. However your data base still has 3 stars for VGHCX .
I am having difficulty deciding where would be more tax efficient to add VGHCX ( Vanguard Health Care ), taxable account or IRA account? Turnover rate 21%. TCA 1.4 -2.8. Would appreciate your comments.
