The Three Top Total Returning Mutual Funds Over The Last Three Years

When saving for retirement or looking for solid long-term investment options, many Americans turn to mutual funds to maximize the return on their savings, as well as to put their capital in the hands of professional money managers. Using the Zacks Mutual Fund Screener, we have picked out the 3 top performing mutual funds from the last 3 years based on total return percentage:

T. Rowe Price Global Technology Fund (PRGTX - MF report)

With a total 3 year return of 25.76%, the T. Rowe Price Global Technology Fund has been the best performing mutual fund in the last 3 years. Managed by the T. Rowe Price family and manager Joshua Spencer, the fund seeks long-term capital growth through investing at least 80% of its net assets throughout the world in the common stocks of companies that generate a majority of their revenues from the development, advancement, and use of technology. The company holdings range from small companies to blue chip firms with established records.

PRGTX has been extremely successful over the last 3 years by allocating its assets mostly in large growth companies (47.12%), small growth companies (12.07%), and high yield bonds (24.22%). Its 3 largest holdings are Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL - Analyst Report) with 7.69% of assets, or $208.98 million, Liberty Global PLC (LBTYA - Analyst Report) with 7.13% of assets, or $193.78 million, and Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA - Analyst Report) with 6.30% of assets, or $171.25 million. The total net assets for the fund are just over $2.7 billion.

PRGTX is actually currently a Zacks Mutual Fund Rank #2 (Buy), and is positioned to continue to be one of the more profitable funds around. With a minimum investment of $2,500 and an expense ratio of .91, this historically high-return-producing fund should be on all long-term investors’ minds.

Pro Funds Internet Ultra Sector Fund (INPIX - MF report)

Coming in as the second best performing mutual fund over the past 3 years is the Profunds Internet UltraSector Fund. This fund’s goal is long-term capital appreciation by seeking daily investment results that correspond to 150% of the performance of the Dow Jones Composite Internet Index. INPIX primarily invests in internet companies or in instruments that provide exposure to these companies.
