The Next Star PMs? The Street Makes a List

News summary by MFWire's editors

After naming the six worst mutual funds for 2011, The Street's Frank Byrt has moved on to naming 10 mutual funds for readers to mull over through the weekend.

Each of the mutual funds on his list holds at least $1 billion in assets and performed better than its well-known peers.

He notes that several of the top 10 performers provide long-term, reliable double digit returns and some have 15-year average annual returns of 8 percent to 12 percent.

The ten include funds and their PMs, in order of return, are:

  • Top of the list are co-PMs John Kohli and Blair Schmicker. The pair rode their picks among regulated domestic electric and natural gas utilities company stocks inside Franklin Utilities (FKUTX) [profile] to a 14-percent return, well ahead of the rest of the list.
