Chapter 16. Comparing Mutual Funds > Choosing Mutual Funds

Choosing Mutual Funds

We have all probably had the experience of reading about a mutual fund that shot up 50%, 100%, or more in the last year, and wishing we had been smart enough (or lucky enough) to have invested in that fund. As they say, hindsight is always 20/20 but it’s not any help to the prudent investor. So just how do you go about picking good mutual funds to invest your money in?

There’s no easy answer to that question, of course. In particular, I will warn you away from the idea of picking the big winners. Even the most seasoned investment pros cannot predict which funds will do exceptionally well; so why should we ordinary investors expect to? Even so, you should not select funds by throwing darts.
