PRIMECAP Odyssey Aggressive Growth

Type: Mid-cap Growth
2012 Return: 19.66%
Category Return: 10.87%

The mid-cap sector can offer lots of growth potential. Just look at the PRIMECAP Odyssey Aggressive Growth (MUTF:POAGX), which has $1.6 billion in assets. Over the past three years, the fund has clocked an average gain of 15.21%.

The portfolio managers at POAGX don’t like jumping on the latest hot trend. Instead, they focus on sectors that are out of favor but poised for a growth spurt. They also have a buy-and-hold bent.

Lately, POAGX has been loading up on health care stocks, which have seen nice gains. Some of the top holdings include Pharmacyclics (NASDAQ:PCYC), Seattle Genetics (NASDAQ:SGEN) and ImmunoGen (NASDAQ:IMGN).
