    How Our Tax-Efficient Vanguard Bucket Portfolios Have Performed

    Thanks to an exceptionally strong equity market and decent, if not spectacular, bond market performance, our tax-efficient Bucket Portfolios for Vanguard investors have delivered solid returns over the past three years. The portfolios have performed so well, in fact, that they've beaten our model Vanguard portfolios that were created without regard for tax efficiency. A dash of small-cap exposure has been a boon, as has the fact that the two tax-managed U.S. equity funds in the portfolio both maintain a bias toward growth stocks, which have dramatically bested value and blend names over the trailing three-year period.

    Retirement Saver Portfolios for Fidelity Investors

    In short, many 401(k) investors have a connection to the Boston-based fund giant. Of course, not every fund that I've used in these portfolios will be found on every Fidelity 401(k) menu, but investors can use the general framework to build out their own portfolios.

    How Our Fidelity Bucket Portfolios Have Performed

    The Fidelity of the 1980s and 1990s was all about domestic-stock funds and the rock-star managers who ran them:  Magellan FMAGX ,  Low-Priced Stock FLPSX ,  Dividend Growth FDGFX , and  Contrafund FCNTX , to name some of the biggies. Fidelity's lineup evolved, too. The firm's fixed-income prowess makes it a particularly appropriate destination for retirees, whose portfolios typically include larger stakes in safe assets than is the case for younger investors.

    Retirement 'Bucket' Portfolios for Fidelity Investors

    My model "bucket" portfolios are composed of funds that our analysts consider best of breed. Of course, most of the big providers allow investors to buy funds from other firms on their platforms without paying any additional transaction fees, but those no-transaction-fee fund menus don't include everything. A Vanguard investor will pay a transaction fee to buy a Fidelity fund, for example, and T. Rowe Price investors will have to pay transaction fees to buy Vanguard funds on the T. Rowe platform.

    Fidelity's Danoff backs Facebook's response to content, privacy issues

    Facebook Inc's (FB.O) second-biggest outside investor has offered backing for the world's largest social media company as it faces public criticism for what people see on its service and how much user information is shared with third parties. Comments by Fidelity Contrafund's (FCNTX.O) Will Danoff, who like other top mutual fund managers rarely voices an opinion about a holding, represent key support for management as some investors seek change at Facebook, but also drew criticism that he should take a tougher line. In a commentary emailed on Monday by the Boston fund firm, Danoff said Facebook, his fund's largest position, "confronted some stiff headwinds" in the first six months of 2018.

    Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) has established itself as the leading social media giant with a market capitalization of $486.99 billion as of July 30, 2018. When Facebook issued its initial public offering (IPO) on May 18, 2012, many mutual funds had already snapped up shares on the private market.

    Unicorn Hunting: Large-Cap Funds That Dabble in Private Companies

    In recent years, prominent companies such as Uber have delayed IPOs, opting to raise money in the private market and build their businesses without the pressure that comes with being publicly traded. Mutual fund managers must increasingly keep tabs on these innovative companies given they could potentially disrupt the business models of their public company holdings. Some active managers have also invested in private companies with the hope that getting in early could reap bigger rewards than waiting for an IPO.
