Yes. But they can't.Point of Clarification.They can, and some do. It is just that most don't.I've not seen a recent study but I would not be surprised to find out that more (but still far less than half) have beat the indexes recently considering how far the S&P fell.There have also been bond funds (especially with this year) that have done better than the Barcley's Bond Ag.IMO, index funds work best in normal and expanding (appreciating) economic conditions and managed funds work better when markets are contracting or losing value. Having some in both is not a bad thing.
