Can Your Mutual Funds Beat the Stock Market?

mutual funds beat the stock market

Mutual Funds absolutely soared last year. I mean c’mon, take a look at the growth on these funds:

Fidelity Select Technology Portfolio, +49.86% Putnam Global Technology Fund, +47.04% VanEck Emerging Market Fund Class Y, +50.32%

Isn’t that just insane??!!

The overall S&P 500 (an index of the top 500 companies in America) had a record year too, but it “only” increased by 20%.

So the analysis is simple, right? “Can your mutual funds beat the stock market?” Well of course! There are three mutual funds listed above that killed the S&P! Buuuuut, not so fast. Just because these 3 mutual funds beat the market doesn’t mean that you can pick which ones will be winners before the year begins. No one has a crystal ball – not even the professionals can accurately predict which mutual funds will beat the market year in and year out.

So is it even possible? Or should we all just be investing in index funds that follow the overall ebb and flow of the stock market? This is what I’m hoping to find out, and I bet you’d like to know too!!
