2 Excellent Long-Term Options From Primecap

Deciding between Primecap Odyssey Growth and Primecap Odyssey Stock--both Gold-rated--comes down to risk tolerance.

Mentioned: ,

Since its 1983 founding, Pasadena, California-based Primecap Management Company has established itself as a premier asset manager. The firm has two strategies open to new investors: Primecap Odyssey Growth, which has a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, and Primecap Odyssey Stock, which also has a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold. Both funds share the same veteran, four-person management team, employ a multimanager approach that divides each fund's asset base into separately run sleeves, and have below average fees versus similarly distributed peers. 

Where the two funds differ is in their mandates. Odyssey Growth focuses on mid- and large-cap stocks that the managers believe have above-average growth potential not reflected in the current market prices, whereas Odyssey Stock tends to invest in more stable, large-cap companies that are attractive for a variety of reasons, including faster than anticipated growth potential, superior profitability, and undervalued assets.
