About the Author
Bob Zuccaro began his career as an analyst for the Value Line Survey in New York City in 1967. When he entered the investment business, there were only 204 mutual funds of all types in existence compared to some 15,000 today. In late 1983 after receiving numerous opportunities to join other investment firms, he decided to form an advisory firm and named it Target Investors. In 1997, Mr. Zuccaro founded Grand Prix Fund--oriented toward aggressive growth stocks. The new fund achieved distinction as one of only seven mutual funds in history to achieve back-to-back years of triple-digit returns. Grand Prix Fund returned 112% in 1998 and 148% in 1999 before it got caught in the throes of the vicious bear market that took hold in early 2000.
