Our 5 Nominees for Domestic-Stock Fund Manager of the Year
Standing out in a good year for stocks.
Sometimes, a rising tide that lifts all boats can make it difficult to stand out. It has been relatively easier to make money in U.S. stocks in 2012 than it was in 2011: Morningstar’s nine diversified domestic-equity categories have each rung up double-digit gains for the year to date through Dec. 10. And aside from a 6% dip in May, it has been fairly smooth sailing throughout the year.
This year's nominees for Morningstar Domestic-Stock Fund Manager of the Year have nevertheless made their mark in 2012 as well as over the long haul. As always, we looked for managers who have not just delivered great results but also have been strong stewards who put fundholders first. The nominees for International-Stock Fund Manager of the Year will be revealed on Friday, Dec. 14, and the Fixed-Income Fund Manager of the Year nominees will be posted on Monday, Dec. 17. We’re also introducing two new Manager of the Year awards for the growing Alternatives and Allocation categories; those nominees will be announced on Tuesday, Dec. 18 and Wednesday, Dec. 19, respectively. Finally, we'll announce all the winners in the first week of January.
