    Was today's downward move just a rebalancing of the fund? Finding it difficult to believe that ~10% "drop" would have occurred otherwise.

    Any opinions on VPMAX being a strong fund for 2021 and beyond? I'm a little concerned about its Moringstar 2 star rating.

    If one has, say, 1 share at, say, $100, and then there's a distribution of either $50 per share OR 1 additional share, which causes the share price to drop to $50, it's all the same. One ends up with either 1 share at $50 plus $50 cash, or 2 shares at $50 each.
    I've had this holding for decades and it's performed wonderfully!

    My father opened up a vanguard account when I was 12 years old and got me some shares of this fund. He proceeded to teach me how to invest and said the rest was up to me. After it closed he told me to never sell them all. I’ve been investing $25-$50/ day every week since. 21 years later it’s still a core fund in my portfolio. That advice and teaching is a gift he gave me that I’m grateful for everyday. Ride or die with this one.

    I have my entire 403b in VPMAX. Is there a similar fund for a personal brokerage account? It's closed for that. Thanks!

    Capital Gains distribution on 12/22 of $13.30. Don't know income distribution yet. Wow!

    I notice that recently VPMAX is lagging the NASDAQ on good days, whereas it is my sense that formerly it participated more fully in NASDAQ upticks. Morningstar "only" ranks it three stars. Half my portfolio is in VPMAX and though I have considerable risk tolerance by nature I'm naturally concerned about the lagging performance. I surmise that Vanguard has pulled back on an aggressive stance with VPMAX in anticipation of inflation risk. Any thoughts?

    VPMAX is long in BIIB. This weighting has helped the recent surge. This fund is solid regardless.

    Primecap is closed. Shouldn't there be a mention of this on yahoo?

    The big news (to me) is how VPMAX is beating FOCPX year to date....

    Income distribution $1.71.

    Biotech heavy it’s worth 140.
    Just wait. Managers are rockstars on wall street. Look it up.

    I had my 401K 100% invested in VPMAX, sold it all 2 weeks ago. This mutual fund just isn’t actively managed as it should be or it would be performing much better. Doing 3x better trading stocks on my own. Good luck to you all.$$$$

    I don’t know why anyone could complain against this fund. I have made a lot of money trading this one.

    I need to do some reallocate....have always liked this fund, but it’s high right now. Bad time to add to position?

    VPMAX went down substantially on 12/17/2019 (Tue) as a diverse index fund. Anyone knows what happen on that date? Any news on the underlying stocks?
  • L
    I think I’m selling this one today. It’s been a nice ride but I’m taking my profits off the table. Good luck

    Today the Dow is up 1.6%. The top 10 holdings of this fund are all up by similar percentages. But the fund is down by over 1%. This doesn't compute.
  • T
    You now have more shares at lower price.

    So sell go to cash and earn .001%. Drop won’t last long as no other place to go for trillions of cash!
