Mutual Fund Selection
A 10 page paper discussing considerations for choosing a mutual fund. By their very nature, most mutual funds supply a reliable method of market investment: the fund is comprised of several stocks of diverse economic sectors and therefore is not as sensitive to market and industry fluctuations as are individual stocks. Of mutual funds, growth, income and the combination growth/income are the most common. The combination of growth and income is one of the most common and one of the most desirable—active income is reinvested to purchase more shares of the fund; growth increases the fund shares' value over time, and the balance of investment holdings within the fund provides the greatest possible return with the least amount of risk.
