I could buy a few shaes of ASML to feed my need for that stock and buy FSELX.
What would you do?
I think your plan to invest in FSELX with a chaser of ASML is solid.
FSELX is a favorite equity sector growth fund of mine. I would not dismiss INTL as a holding. Yes, it's been terrible for years but in 2021 they rehired their CEO from their glory days, Patrick Gelsinger, and are looking for a turnaround. Expect an announcement from Intel regarding their foray into AI and the resulting jolt in stock price in the next several months or so.
I would not call FSELX's holdings in TSM (5.07% of fund) and LRCX (3.80%) small, but relative to NVDA (29.6%) it might be considered so.
