|ETG expenses 1.64%; FFC expenses 1.64% ... not sure why you consider its expenses are high. Believe purchases when in 6% discount area present better entry if you can wait for the dips.|
I like ETG's current holdings but am not crazy about the frequent turnover of almost 100%.
Depending on what type fund and holdings you desire, also might wish to check out EHI.
I hold full positions in EHI, FFC and am establishing one in ETG ... currently at 25% position in ETG.
Disclaimer in that I am no expert ... just a guy trying to establish a growing income stream.
