No. of Recommendations: 0
Well the Fool doesn't recommend most mutual funds, true. I do however disagree but that is because I do my homework and I found a fund that works for me and I know all the ups and downs going in which I think makes it Foolish rather than foolish. Also, Step 4 of the Fool's School does recommend an index fund: Vanguard's 500 Index which is one of my funds and did good for what it was supposed to do last year in beating its index for the 3rd straight year(Notice this fund doesn't get much respect in Fool articles where individual stocks seem to be highly suggested in a way).
