Vanguard Primecap Core

The six men who run Vanguard Primecap Core (VPCCX) don’t speak to the press. Instead, they let the results of their fine fund do the talking. They focus on growing companies but are value-oriented in their stock picking. Moreover, their portfolio turnover rate is exceptionally low for a growth fund, which makes this fund suitable for taxable accounts.

Primecap steered clear of the debacle in financials and instead loaded up on health-care stocks, such as Eli Lilly, Medtronic and Amgen, and technology companies, such as Google, Oracle and Intuit.
