Today, Morningstar reveals the nominees for its Domestic-Stock Fund Manager of the Year award. Columns on the nominees for other asset classes will follow next week, and the winners will be announced on Jan. 25.

In addition to delivering strong 2016 results, this year's five nominees boast notable long-term records and include past finalists and winners of the award. This is not unusual. The Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year awards have always strived to recognize both recent and career achievements. To qualify, managers' funds must have Morningstar Analyst Ratings of Bronze, Silver, or Gold; they also must have impressive absolute, relative, and risk-adjusted returns not only in the year ended Dec. 31 but over their tenures as well. It helps if the managers have delivered outstanding results for a significant number of shareholders over time and exhibited histories of close alignment with shareholders.
