Fidelity Contrafund is a large-company stock fund and a member of the Kiplinger 25, the annual list of our favorite no-load funds.
With $89 billion in assets, Will Danoff's fund is one of the nation's largest. But Danoff, who has run Contra since 1990, continues to beat his peers. He's no index-hugger, either; 16% of the fund's assets are invested in small and midsize companies.
