The Best Stock-Fund Managers Of 2018

FYI: Most mutual-fund managers were more than happy to bid farewell to 2018.

With the S&P 500 index wrapping up the year with the worst December since 1931, and a 6.2% loss for the full year, the average manager overseeing a diversified U.S.-stock fund saw a total return of minus 7.73% in 2018, according to Thomson Reuters Lipper. Nor were international stock funds any refuge: On average, they fell 15.52% for the year.

But amid all that gloom, a handful of managers emerged as big winners, posting double-digit gains for the year.
