Jim Craig doesn't like the idea that big stocks and small stocks should be an either/or proposition for a mutual fund manager. His employer, Denver-based Janus Group, solved that problem: They gave him both types of funds to run. So far, Craig's shareholders can't complain about his split personality. Both his big-stock Janus Fund and small-stock Janus Venture Fund boasted total returns in excess of 90% in the five years ended June 30--far surpassing the 49% return of the average U.S.
