Pimco's Stock Funds Underwhelm the WSJ


Fundsters who have been watching Pimco's [see profile] move into the stock-picking business may want to look today's issue of the Wall Street Journal. Mary Pilon profiles the unit and two of its mutual funds.

Former Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) chief and ex-Goldman Sachs investment banker Neel Kashkari took over Pimco's equity business two years ago. Its funds include the $1.5-billion Pathfinder fund (a global equity fund) and the $376.1-million Emerging Markets equities fund.
