Yes, finding funds or even individual stocks that have beaten the indexes is not difficult. The hard part is identifying the ones that will continue to do well in the coming quarter or year.Managed funds that consistently beat the averages probably are worth what you pay for them. Any fund, any investment can have a good quarter or a good year. But few put them together back to back.If the performance of your basic investments seem to have lagged, it is probably a good idea to go looking for better performance. But go slow. Select carefully. And if you do well at it, then do more.The index funds tend to be conservative investments. They do quite well, but individual investments and good stock pickers can usually do better. But finding those when you need them can be tricky. I don't think there is a magical formula. You have to be willing to work at it.
