This fund is run by Ken Heebner, who is best known for managing the high-flying CGM Focus fund. Heebner is also known for frequent trading. CGM Realty's portfolio turnover is close to 200 percent, according to Morningstar. Over the past 10 years, the fund has returned an annualized 20 percent, which places it in the top 1 percent of its category as of the end of the first quarter.

The portfolio only holds between 20 to 25 stocks, and Heebner can invest up to 20 percent of the fund's total assets outside of the real estate industry, according to the fund's prospectus. Earlier in 2010, copper and silver producer companies made up about 15 percent of the portfolio, according to Morningstar. The fund's annual fees are 0.93 percent.
