Capital Appreciation Fund (PRWCX)

About The Capital Appreciation Fund

The fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in common stocks. It may hold fixed-income and other securities to help preserve principal value.

David R. Giroux, CFA has managed this fund since 07/01/2006.

Because of the fund's fixed-income holdings or cash position, it may not keep pace in a rapidly rising market. And its value orientation carries the possibility that the market will not recognize a security's intrinsic worth for an unexpectedly long time or that a stock judged to be undervalued may actually be appropriately priced.
