Four Fidelity Stock Funds Worth a Look
Searching for good funds where the managers are not named Will or Joel.
It's with some trepidation that I share my sleeper Fidelity fund picks with you.
Sure, Fidelity offers a number of dependable funds, including Contrafund (FCNTX) and Low-Priced Stock (FLPSX), supercheap index funds, and some wonderful bond funds. But look beyond those and you can quickly get frustrated. For example, you find a manager who delivers a few years of outstanding returns, money pours in, the fund gets bloated, and performance sags. Or the manager gets promoted to a bigger fund and a relative unknown takes over the fund you invested in. Or it turns out that those first few scintillating years were really just a fluke.
An Enticing Trio
Still, I can think of three solid managers who may stick around for a while in their current jobs and for whom I'm willing to stick out my neck. Fidelity has millions of customers, including many in 401(k) plans, so plenty of folks could use these tips.
