Kip 25: Our Favorite Mutual Funds, 2014

We add four new names to the roster of our favorite no-load mutual funds.

No baseball team, not even the winner of the World Series, rests on its laurels. So it is with the Kiplinger 25, the list of our favorite no-load mutual funds. Most of our picks outpaced their respective benchmarks over the past year, the third year in a row we can make that claim. But we want to make the Kip 25 even better and, just as important, bench any problematic funds before their performance starts to slip. So, as any good general manager would do, we’ve brought in a few new players.
