What are the chances of sabotaging your investments with bad choice of funds?
Mutual fund investors typically buy a fund after a period of good performance. This is because they wait for the fund to perform before adding it to their portfolio. But for thematic funds or those run by star fund managers, their golden period is often over by the time they get really popular. Disappointed with the returns, investors again look for another fund to buy, typically choosing again something that has been hot lately. In short, they buy high and sell low, and repeat the process multiple times. How can fund investors avert such a situation? Read on to find out.(Market Watch)
