Aggressive Growth Funds
Of all mutual funds, aggressive growth funds offer some of the highest potential returns but with above-average risk. Aggressive growth funds look for stocks that may rise sharply in value, rather than securities that offer shareholders steady income through dividends. Many of the funds invest in new issues or in stocks of troubled companies. Fund managers may also use options or other tools as part of their effort to boost the fund''s return.Subscribers to Microsoft Investor can use the fund-screening feature in the Finder to get a list of the current, top-performing, aggressive growth funds.
