Chapter 2: Mutual Funds: Investments for the Masses
"Mutual funds will bore you to wealth." This is a popular industry saying. In this chapter, we dig deep into the mutual fund industry and investigate their history, growth, fees, and offerings. We then focus on a single mutual fund and ask a very difficult question: "How do I choose a mutual fund?" With approximately 12,000 funds available, it ain't easy!

"Value matters. You ignore value at your peril." -- Greg Ireland, mutual fund manager with over 35 years experience. How much is a stock worth? What is its intrinsic value? It is not an easy question to answer. We will investigate just a few of the many valuation models available and then review one of the industry's most respected information sources, The Value Line.
