Today, Morningstar reveals the nominees for its Domestic-Stock Fund Manager of the Year. Columns discussing the nominees for other asset classes will follow this week and next, and the winners will be announced on Jan. 26.

These are not one-hit wonders. The list of four includes some repeat nominees and winners, and all of the finalists have long-term records that are just as impressive as their 2015 results. Morningstar's Fund Manager of the Year awards have always tried to recognize managers who not only post strong trailing-year returns but also have recent achievements that point to enduring processes and strong prospects for sound long-term performance. It also helps if the managers have delivered outstanding results for a significant number of shareholders over time and exhibit histories of close alignment with shareholders. In evaluating the candidates, Morningstar analysts consider not just the managers' most prominent funds but also others they run (when applicable). Their funds need to have Morningstar Analyst Ratings of Gold, Silver, or Bronze.
