QUARTERLY INVESTMENT OUTLOOK AND FUND REVIEW

Performance of Largest and 401(k)-Favorite Mutual Funds

October 09, 2000

The majority of the largest U.S. mutual funds--popular with investors and often found in company 401(k) plans--fared better than the S&P 500 index in the third quarter of 2000. Here are the largest funds, in order of third quarter total return (price change plus any interest or dividend income), as well as a selection of funds common in Southern California 401(k) plans. Included are returns for other periods and each fund's "category rating" and "star rating" as assessed by Morningstar. Explanations of ratings and objective category definitions begin on U12. Three-year returns are annualized.
