From The Wall Street Journal

From TheStreet.com
One of Firsthand Funds' will close to new investors in the very near future. Firsthand said it would close the $398 million Technology Innovators fund when it hits $450 million in assets. With $5 million to $10 million flowing in each day, the fund could hit that target within two weeks. The Technology Value fund is the top-returning mutual fund over the past five years and returns of two other funds are also in triple digits this year. In response, investors have poured more than $350 million into the company's three biggest funds through Sept. 30, according to Financial Research. Firsthand's total assets were $1.1 billion as of Oct. 31, most of which has been gathered in the last 12-14 months.
