Strong Returns Didn't Stop Outflows From These Funds

News summary by MFWire's editors

Fundsters, beware: beating the market by a solid margin isn't always enough to stop outflows in times of trouble. In his latest column, the Associated Press' Mark Jewell points to three multi-billion-dollar, large-cap growth funds that earned positive average returns (2.9 to 7 percent) from the beginning of 2007 to the end of 2010, even as the S&P 500 lost 0.8 percent on average, and still suffered outflows: Calamos Growth [see profile], Fidelity Blue Chip Growth [see profile] and Putnam Voyager [see profile].

Jewell highlights data from Standard & Poor's on the percentage of actively-managed U.S. stock funds that beat the market over those four years and notes the $323 billion in net ouflows they suffered (by comparison with the $108 billion in net inflows into U.S. stock index funds). S&P managing director Srikant Dash and BlackRock bigwig Bob Doll both weighed in for the article.
