It's every investor's goal to beat the S&P 500. It's even better if they can do it consistently. However, beating the S&P 500 on a regular basis is becoming an increasingly unattainable feat. An S&P Dow Jones Indices scorecard released last year showed that 86% of active large cap fund managers beat the S&P 500 in 2014. Even worse, 89% came up short in the last five year period while 82% fell behind in the last ten-year period. It's no wonder why index investing has become so popular. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

While it's a challenge to find an active fund that's beaten the index in just one year, believe it or not, there are, in fact, four mutual funds that have managed to beat the S&P 500 in each of the last NINE consecutive years! Yes, nine straight years of beating the S&P 500!
