foreign stock funds lead the gains in first quarter

small investors' move to 'passive' stock funds becomes a stampede


whenever small investors have been pitched a financial product that promised to enrich them with little effort or expense, historically the smart response has been to turn and run.there has been one shining exception over the last four decades: low-cost mutual funds that aim to do nothing more, or less, than generate the average return of the entire stock market, or a specific market sector.these “passively managed” or “index” funds have delivered as they said they would — and have shamed many “actively managed” u.s. stock funds, the majority of which over the long run have failed to exceed or match the average market return after deducting their fees.passive funds were relatively slow to catch on with individual investors in the 1980s and ’90s. but over the last few years, americans have

target-date funds – the denver post

where investors favor humans over indexes: target-date funds


new york — in the battle for investors' dollars, the humans have largely lost.last year, investors pulled $340 billion out of mutual funds run by managers who are trying to beat the market. instead, dollars are flowing into index funds, which are content to track the market and charge lower fees for doing so.investors are still giving money to active managers in one notable area, though, which also happens to be one of the hottest for retirement saving. target-date funds offer a simple, do-it-for-you approach to building a nest egg, and one of the fastest-growing providers in the field is american funds. all its offerings are actively managed, and its target-date funds drew $16 billion in investment last year, according to morningstar. the only firm to attract more was vanguard, the giant






funds that are hurting in low-volatility market


low-volatility funds and etfs are a prepackaged solution. they are like bluejeans that promise to be reasonably priced and make you look skinny, but they have the potential to be disappointing because they’re not comfortable to wear.when the mutual-fund industry started pushing “low-volatility funds” on the public a few years ago, it was cashing in on the fears of the investment public in a frothy market still recovering from the financial crisis.what everyone overlooked as the category of funds and etfs grew rapidly was that “low-vol” funds don’t do so great in a low-volatility market.like the one we’ve got now.while everyone is waking up to the fact that these funds don’t look so great sailing in calm seas, there is a legitimate question to be asked about whether investors are giving up






despite dire forecasts, bond funds are doing fine – the denver post


by stan choe,the associated press surprise: bond funds are doing just fine.after turning in their worst quarterly performance in years, bond funds were supposed to keep struggling as the calendar flipped to 2017. managers were busy early this year making sure expectations were properly low for bond funds, even after billions of dollars left them in november and again in december.but reality, at least so far, has turned out to be nearly the opposite of expectations. rather than continuing to drop, bond prices have perked higher this year. that’s helped funds focused on intermediate-term u.s. government bonds return an average of 1 percent through the first third of the year, more than they have in three of the last four full years. returns have been better for funds that add in corporate bo

investors are benefiting from safeguards put in place in october to prevent a repeat of the run on money-market funds experienced during the financial crisis.cash is flowing into short-term u.s. government debt funds at the fastest pace in more than six months, just when you might expect investors to be running for the exits.demand is surging even as lawmakers wrangle with a looming debt-ceiling deadline and investors become concerned about treasury missing payments on the securities held in most of the funds. more than $75 billion has been deposited in government money-market funds in the four weeks ended aug. 16, compared with outflows of about $18.5 billion from u.s. exchanged-traded and mutual funds, investment company institute data show.whether investors are seeking a refuge from geo






asset growth in target-date funds rising – the denver post


by alex veiga, the associated presswhen it comes to building their retirement nest egg, investors increasingly are betting on the set-it-and-forget-it approach of target-date funds.such funds, which are designed to minimize risk over time by gradually shifting from stocks to bonds as an investor’s retirement date nears, hit a record $880 billion in assets last year, according to morningstar research services.target-date funds are the default option for many employee retirement plans, which has helped drive their growth.the plans appeal to people who want to avoid the worry or responsibility of a hands-on approach to investing, another growing trend. roughly two of every three dollars that went into target-date plans last year went into those that focused on investing in index funds, which






fund investing is cheaper than ever, and it’s because of you – the denver post


take a bow, investors. it’s never been cheaper to invest in funds, and it’s largely because of you.investors are increasingly heeding experts’ advice to seek out lower-cost funds in their 401(k) accounts and other portfolios. and because so much money is massing in the cheapest funds, the pressure is on the rest of the industry to cut their own expenses or risk losing even more dollars. the result of this heightened cost consciousness: investors are keeping more of their own dollars and possibly setting themselves up for better returns in the future.the steady drip lower for expenses means $63 of every $10,000 invested in stock mutual funds went to cover fees last year. that’s down from $67 a year earlier and from $104 two decades ago, according to figures published recently by the investm






investing in funds successfully can be difficult


welcome to where nearly everyone is below average.it’s the world where investors try to pick which mutual funds will beat the market. it sounds great in theory, but the odds of doing it successfully over the long term can be slimmer than winning a lotto prize.twice each year, s&p dow jones indices checks how fund managers are performing against indexes in various categories. for the first time, it has a full 15 years of data to compare. that stretch of time captures not only two big rallies for the stock market (2002-07 and 2009 to today) but also the worst downturn since the great depression (2007-09), which means it should offer a look at the full breadth of a manager’s skills.most funds did poorly relative to their index, and not just ones that focus on u.s. stocks, whose performance ha






outlook grows dimmer for stock-picking fund managers


today’s infants may gasp in wonder 20 years from now at tales of how humans once were trusted to drive cars. they may also be shocked that humans once were trusted to pick stocks for investment portfolios.the soaring popularity of “index” or “passive” mutual funds in the last few years has dealt another blow to the ranks of traditional “actively managed” funds — the ones with human portfolio managers who are supposed to ferret out the best stocks and beat the market average return.despite the roaring bull market since 2009, the number of actively managed u.s. stock funds has shrunk from 3,466 in 2006 to 2,957 now, according to the investment company institute, mutual funds’ trade group.charles ellis, one of the best-known chroniclers of the investment management business, believes that thi






why you should care about tech stock troubles


tech stocks have this week recovered from a calamitous two-day drop that had wiped out billions of dollars of value from the likes of apple (aapl), amazon (amzn) and microsoft (msft). should people who aren't active investors care? many should, especially those with a 401(k) or ira -- which is just over half of americans. if you have one of these accounts, it's more than likely you have a stake in a tech giant, whether you know it or not.apple, microsoft, alphabet (goog) and facebook (fb) are all in the top-10 most popular stocks in mutual funds, according to data from morningstar, the investment analysis company.

what to look for in your fund investments, beyond low fees – the denver post


by stan choe,the associated press fees are the first thing that investors should consider when looking at a fund investment, and the financial industry has been tripping over itself to cut expenses ever lower. but expenses are hardly the only thing to consider.keeping expenses low has been in the spotlight, mostly because it’s proven to be one of the best and easiest ways to help your savings grow. a fund with low fees has an automatic head start over higher-cost rivals for returns, and compounded over years the advantage can grow even more powerful. mindful of this, investors are pouring their money into lower-cost mutual funds and exchange-traded funds.the industry has taken notice, and is racing to cut expenses to draw in increasingly cost-conscious customers. charles schwab’s mutual fu






trump administration has found only $20 million in existing funds to build wall

trump golf course ordered to pay $5.7 million to ex-members


west palm beach, fla. — a florida golf course owned by president donald trump must immediately repay $5.7 million to 65 former members who had been denied membership refunds after he bought the club in 2012, a federal judge ruled wednesday.district judge kenneth marra ruled that trump national golf club in jupiter violated contracts the members had signed with the previous owner, ritz-carlton. the average payment will be about $87,000 if the ruling is upheld.attorney brad edwards, who represented the members, said wednesday that when the trial ended last august, “i never felt more confident what the right decision would be.”“so (the ruling) wasn’t a surprise, but it was worth the wait,” he said.the trump organization vowed to appeal, saying in a statement, “we respectfully disagree with th
