it looks to me like 46 funds out of 74 (46/74) of the stock fund stock performed their indexes, pretty impressive even though it was just over one year.

Respectfully I disagree.

That is only 62% outperformed their respective index. You would have to buy all 74.

For the most part passively managed funds or ETFs are a better option.

If you to gamble with a few activly traded funds be my guest, but the bulk of your portfolio should be passively managed.
