Are the 10 Hottest-Selling Mutual Funds Keepers or Dogs?

Russel Kinnel

Last year I took a look at the hottest-selling funds and was encouraged to see that most of them were good choices. Things weren't always that way. Go back to 1999 and investors couldn't get enough tripe.

I took a look at the top sellers for 2007 through May and found that once more investors are choosing some excellent funds with low costs and solid management. That's not to suggest that you should buy a fund simply because it's popular, but if you do own one of these you've made a decent choice.
