Current performance ratings are presented regarding equity, bond and closed-end funds. The book also provides step-by-step instructions on how to set up and monitor a portfolio, describes how to balance risk against reward and explains how mutual fund investments affect tax liability. Topics covered include: when to sell; ways of figuring tax consequences; how to stabilize investments during uncertain times; common pitfalls; and how possible changes in the 1991 economy will affect mutual fund performances.
