"Do Mutual Funds Still Work?"

    Discussed by:

    Chuck Jaffe
    Senior Columnist, MarketWatch

Mutual funds have been rocked by management scandals and savaged by the bear market to where many investors dropped them and missed the rebound. They?ve been challenged by exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and abandoned by a lot of ordinary investors who question whether funds are an effective and real financial tool. For most investors, funds remain a great way to go, however. This session will help you pick the ones to look for, and the ones to look out for. It will help you decide between open-ended mutual funds and ETFs. It will give you tips on building a portfolio and it will help you avoid the common mistakes that have those other guys thinking that funds are dead.
