Primecap Odyssey Growth is one of six funds managed by the Primecap team, whose  Vanguard Primecap (VPMCX) has achieved one of the fund industry’s best track records during the past 30 years. The managers' patient, disciplined contrarian growth strategy emphasizes companies with strong growth potential but temporarily depressed valuations, and they're willing to hold on to stocks for a long time waiting for a turnaround. Each of the five portfolio managers independently runs a sleeve of assets, allowing them to follow their convictions within this broad strategy, and they don’t hesitate to make significant sector and industry bets in areas where they see a lot of potential. In recent years, technology, biotech, and airline stocks have been the managers’ favorites.
