Only one no-fee fund beats the AMCAP American Fund over the last 20 years and that is the Fidelty ContraFund (by 1%). I will see what I can find on comparable Vanguard funds, if they have been around that long.


Send me a note in 5 years to see if that fund is beating the market indexes. It's extremely easy to select a fund that's had a high return in the past vs. picking a fund for future investment.

Sort of like picking the winner of the Final Four after or before they play the games.
