A Tough Year for Stockpickers

Blame it on volatility, bad news from Europe or plain old poor stock picking -- 2011 was tough on mutual fund managers.

In 2010 almost every professionally managed stock mutual fund provided a positive return, and the average fund handily beat broad stock indexes. That wasn't the case this year, when more than two-thirds of stock mutual funds lost money. Bloomberg Rankings analyzed the performance of more than 500 U.S.-based retail equity mutual funds. Our ranking begins with the best-performing funds, followed by those with the worst showing.

Note: The ranking excludes sector or index funds, as well as those with assets of less than $250 million or a minimum initial investment of $100,000 or more. All performance figures are from the beginning of 2011 through Dec. 2. Top holdings use the most recent data available.
