Description

Gene Walden is a master of summarizing volumes of objective data to determine "the best" in a crowded field of investment possibilities. For the fourth time, he turns his attention to helping investors identify the best mutual funds out of more than 8,500 possibilities.

Following his rigorous and proven model based on stringent criteria, Walden objectively rates the best mutual funds to own. Each fund receives an in-depth profile, ratings based on performance, consistency, and fees/services/ management, a fund overview, plus:

* the top ten holdings of the fund
* sales charges and annual fees
* description of the fund manager's experience
* minimum investment requirements
* performance records, including 6-year bar chart
* resources to further investigate each fund

The 100 Best Mutual Funds includes nearly every type of fund--blue chip, small stock, growth and income, sector, global, bond funds and more. Walden also includes a clear-headed, no-nonsense overview of investing in mutual funds as well as insights from 20 of the nation's top portfolio managers.

The author also includes rankings divided into types of funds as well as an alphabetic listing.
