best performing mutual funds


Reaction score
It is natural for us to want to know which the best performing mutual funds today when we shop for them.

You should keep in mind that when looking for the best mutual funds, you’re shopping for tomorrow. A top performer in the short term may not become a long-term winner. The best mutual funds for your portfolio will probably not be the best for your parents, your siblings, or your neighbors.
Using data from Morningstar (a NerdWallet advertising partner), we evaluated major U.S. equity funds open to new investors with low costs (no sales commissions, and expense ratios of 1% or less) and minimum investment requirements of $2,500 or less.
