What I would like to see is the list of those 7% of the funds that consistently beat the Vanguard 500. Why doesn't anyone ever talk about those? Perhaps there is no fund that consitently beats the index.

Here's the list of Large-Cap funds that beat the Vanguard S&P500 index fund over the past 10 years according to Morningstar.
Ticker Name -------------------------- 10 Year total return
MSIGX Oppenheimer Main St Growth & Income A 22.33
VPMCX Vanguard Primecap 22.17
MCOFX MFS Capital Opportunities A 20.55
FDETX Fidelity Destiny II 19.98
AGTHX Growth Fund of America 19.54
AVLFX AIM Value A 19.37
GSCGX Goldman Sachs Capital Growth A 19.37
CUCAX Warburg Pincus Capital Apprec Comm 19.30
AGBBX Alliance Growth B 19.27
GPAFX Guardian Park Avenue A 18.88
HRCPX Heritage Capital Appreciation A 18.30
FMAGX Fidelity Magellan 18.10
ANEFX New Economy 18.09
CAPEX Capital Exchange 18.06
USBOX Quant Growth & Income Ord 18.06
MFRFX MFS Research A 18.01
FEDEX Federated Capital Appreciation A 17.81
FGRIX Fidelity Growth & Income 17.75
FDEQX Fidelity Disciplined Equity 17.65
ABCAX AIM Blue Chip A 17.49
DDSTX Dreyfus Disciplined Stock 17.39
UMEQX Excelsior Blended Equity 17.37
PPSPX Principal Preserv S&P 100 Plus A 17.31
VFINX Vanguard 500 Index 17.31

Of course, the problem is that next year the Vanguard S&P500 index fund will match the performance of the index while many of the funds higher on the list above won't beat the index NEXT YEAR. I know of no way to identify them beforehand.
