Old_Skeet: Thanks for selecting three interesting investment topics daily for the MFO board. I don't want to make a discussion topic out of my thoughts because it will inevitably unleash the foes of our indiscriminate poster and thereby spur him to seek out even more dreck to link. Showing how selecting and linking should be done, as you are, might serve as an object lesson and bring meaningful reform. Here's hoping! Best wishes, Ben
I just finished a call with Principal because I was unable to locate any information about PMDIX on its site. He searched as well and looked for other resources at Principal. Nada. Also, I searched the site for PMDAX but received a 404 error. So unless we both really missed something, there isn't any information of the site about this fund.
I own PCBIX, which does have detailed information about it at Principal.
I have followed PMDIX for a while but don't own it, and like you, have others in this "sleeve." PMDIX would fit in with what I own (and I've run all the numbers), but I already think I have enough diversification.
Cecil, A question I asked yesterday in an edited post - Do you compute your YTD returns on your various portfolio sleeves including or excluding how much you have in cash? Many thanks. That's an impressive return if you are including the 20%+ you hold in cash.
