How to Pick a Mutual Fund

It is just as important to practice due diligence when choosing a mutual fund as it is when choosing a stock. A number of mutual funds have historically been riskier than some individual stocks. You need to have basic knowledge of the fund and the securities it holds, as well as an understanding of how the fund is managed. The following are resources that can help you to choose appropriate mutual funds for your portfolio.
