Who says that bigger is better? Attractive returns can come in portfolios of all sizes. We found a handful of small funds that pack a big punch.
There are roughly 8,600 mutual funds in the U.S., and for every multibillion-dollar heavyweight like Fidelity's Magellan there are dozens of scrappy, smaller competitors. But being a bantamweight has its advantages. The manager of a small fund can duck and weave, deploying his investment ideas with greater speed and agility than the big boys. With that in mind we went in search of top-performing, relatively small funds and identified three that, based on their impressive returns, appear to be on their way to bigger things.
