Firsthand Funds 185Ticker: ALTEX
Minimum Investment: $2,000
Expenses: 1.98%
Load: None
Yield: None

No. 1 in its fund category (mid-growth tech), according to Morningstar, ALTEX is up 84% for the year-to-date, beating its benchmark by 64 percentage points. True, the expense ratio is high, but when a fund puts up this kind of return, why quibble over fees of 2%?

Top holdings include SolarCity (SCTY), Praxair (PX) and Corning (GLW).
