Monetta Core Growth Fund renamed Monetta Young Investor Growth Fund (MYIFX)

WHEATON, IL.—April 29, 2021. Monetta Financial Services, Inc. (“Monetta”) announced today two changes to the Monetta Core Growth Fund (MYIFX). On April 30, the fund’s name will become the Monetta Young Investor Growth Fund and its minimum initial investment will lower from $100 to $25 with an automatic investment plan.

Only the fund’s name and minimum investment are changing. Its objective, philosophy and strategy remain the same. The fund employs a diversified indexed component together with an actively managed portfolio of large-cap growth stocks.

“The genesis of the Monetta Young Investor Growth Fund was our desire to provide all investors with a diversified fund, consisting of a passive portion that tracks the performance of the S&P 500 index and the balance invested primarily in large-cap growth companies that most investors recognize,” said Monetta Founder and Chairman Robert S. Bacarella. “In addition, for young investors, there are educational and college tuition program offerings that teach basic financial life skills and help families save for college.”
