Vice Fund’s Four Core Sectors: Alcohol, Gaming, Tobacco, and Defense
DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Way back in August of 2002, The Vice Fund launched and became what we believe to be a household name quickly. One of the first in its “sin stock” category, the Vice Fund received all kinds of media attention, from Good Morning America to Jim Cramer and hundreds of other media hits along the way.
Over the past two decades, the fund changed its name for short periods of time. It was briefly renamed as the Vitium Global Fund, because Vitium, which is the Latin for Vice and was a slick way for the fund to calm its politically correct naysayers. It seems the Fund is no longer trying to tip-toe around, recently adding cannabis and psychedelics to its holdings.
VICEX is now celebrating its 20th year in business, and Portfolio Manager Paul Strehle had this to say about going back to its original name, the Vice Fund: “The fund is unapologetically going back to its original name because we believe in the four core sectors that the fund invests in, namely alcohol, gaming, tobacco, and defense. We also expanded our holdings into cannabis and psychedelic stocks in late 2021.”
Paul adds, “We believe that VICEX is an innovative and enduring fund in the competitive landscape of thematic mutual funds. We chose to go back to the fund’s original name because we believe the valuations for so-called ‘sin stocks’ are extremely compelling relative to the market at large and this is a great opportunity for us to connect with our original supporters.”
