Investing Review

This Cushing Renaissance Advantage Fund objective is to provide high total return. It uses its assets to purchase companies across the energy supply chain spectrum, energy-intensive chemical, metal and industrial and manufacturing companies and engineering and construction companies, and transportation and logistics companies.  Jerry V. Swank, Matthew A. Lemme, and Saket Kumar are the fund managers.

Incepted in 2013, it has small assets of $13.7 million. Its expense ratio is high, 2.00%. The class A fund has a sales load of 5.75%. Being a new mutual fund, there is no performance history to discuss. For the past 1 month, it has returned 2.64%. The last dividend is distributed on July 18, 2013 in amount of $0.16 per share.

To invest in this fund, you need $2,000 initial investment for regular brokerage account and $250 initial funding for retirement account (IRA). Class I fund has no sales load. This stock fund uses investment style of Mid Value.

The current share price is $21.56. Its top 5 stocks are Marathon Petroleum Corp, Phillips 66, HollyFrontier Corp, Genesee & Wyoming Inc Class A, and Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corp. The top 3 sectors are Energy, Industrials, and Basic Materials.

Final Opinion

  • Since it is new fund, it is not suitable for long term investment. Investing in small amount for speculation is more appropriate.
  • Avoid the load class such as Class A and Class C
  • Since it is an equity energy sector mutual fund, it is more volatile than typical large cap fund.
