While looking to fill a potential spot in my portfolio that will more directly address the future inflation threat PIMCO's PIRMX fund seemed on the surface to fill this requirement. The type of assets used, also being actively managed, as well as the PIMCO resources utilized appear to meet this need. However the ranking, turnover and longevity are not as encouraging. Is this good marketing hype or has anyone taken a look at this fund ? Are there better alternatives ? Is it too early to move in this direction or wait and watch Fed activity. My problem in the past is waiting too long only to find the pundits telling me I'm too late and have already missed the boat.
