Investors love baseball references. Let the ball come to you; wait for the fat pitch; don’t swing for the fences. Doug Foreman, 63, is guilty of using the occasional baseball cliché, but he also has firsthand experience succeeding in both.
A top-ranked high school player, Foreman was invited to try out for the Los Angeles Dodgers when he was 18. He declined, having already committed to the U.S. Naval Academy.
“I think I made the right decision,” says Foreman, whose batting average as an investor has sent the $2.2 billion Virtus KAR Mid-Cap Growth fund (ticker: PHSKX) to the top of its Morningstar category for every major trailing-return period since he took it over in 2012.

Equity Securities: The market price of equity securities may be adversely affected by financial market, industry, or issuer-specific events. Focus on a particular style or on small or medium-sized companies may enhance that risk. Market Volatility: Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issue, recessions, or other events could have a significant impact on the portfolio and its investments, including hampering the ability of the portfolio manager(s) to invest the portfolio’s assets as intended. Prospectus: For additional information on risks, please see the fund’s prospectus.
