Four Loser Funds Worth Sticking With for the Turnaround


You don't make a profit until you sell, as the old saw goes, but the opposite is also true. These four funds, while in the red, are worth holding on to.

Artisan Small Cap Value (MUTF:ARTVX)
This closed fund is a little different. It does have a significant amount (10%) in basic materials, but the real driver of red ink is its 34% industrials stake. Names like Ryder and FTI Consulting have been brutal this year. Even tech names like Intersil and Sykes have been stung. Thus, stock selection has hurt, too.

Yet go out beyond three years and you'll see top-quintile returns for the past five and ten years. That's why we think this is more of a pothole than a cliff.
