Several good points in this article may suggest the need for short term, new performance metric. What do you think about publishing the average of the 5 yr performance and the 6 year performance. This mutes the effect of sudden drop in return that may actually reward funds that did a exceptionally bad job in the year prior to the 5 yr period. It may also provide a more relevant metric than the 10 yr average return.

I triued to buy some PRIMECAP Odyssey Agg Gr (POAGX) a couple days ago and it was closed to new investors. SO I'd put a c in front tof that before anybody else reads this and gets their hopes up. Perhaps this happened since year end. THis might be a good reason to get asome $ into any funds you like before they close. And if they do well they will attract attention and close.
