USA Today
Chicago Tribune
The decision by Monument to change the name of its Internet fund has sparked a conflagration of "dotcom" fund stories. The New York Times reports that "last year the word Internet was a golden apple for starved investors, but this year it has become a taboo." USA Today writes that: "The brutal dot-com blowup is now wreaking havoc on the mutual fund industry's Internet pocket." Unable to resist a Halloween metaphor, the Chicago paper states that the "witching hour" for these funds has arrived. Monument's Digital Technology fund (nee Internet fund) is down to just $88 million, after being hit be a wave of redemptions and a 43.4 percent loss from its peak. as the climate for Internet stocks darkened deeply since March. The fund will also invest in a more broad selection of stocks than just Internet plays. Multiple reports include the news that The de Leon Internet 100 fund, headed by former Loomis Sayles money manager Paul de Leon, shut down laws week and refunded assets to shareholders. The Chicago Tribune also includes an interesting table correlating Net stock returns with cash flows to Net funds. Not surprisingly, inflows peaked in March at $2.5 billion. Outflows hit a new high of $195 million in September.
