Federated Kaufmann Small Cap
Type: Small-cap growth
2012 Return: 23.85%

Lawrence Auriana and Hans Utsch are legendary growth investors. Back in 2002, they launched a new fund, Federated Kaufmann Small Cap A (MUTF:FKASX), with a focus on small-cap operators.
As should be no surprise, it has been quite volatile. Of course, the worst came in 2008, when the fund lost 43.7%.
Yet over the past three years, FKASX has gotten its groove back. The annual average gain was about 12.35%.
