    The 5 Best Stock Funds for Retirement Savers in 2020

    What a difference a year makes. On Christmas Eve 2018, the S&P; 500 closed sharply down, bringing its peak-to-trough losses to 19.8% - just shy of the 20% loss that defines a bear market. Even many of the best stock funds were clobbered. You had to look hard to find any optimistic market watchers that winter.In contrast, with the S&P; 500 up a stunning 29% in the year just ended, most market gurus are expecting good tidings in 2020 - albeit much more muted gains than 2019 produced.Last year was yet another one in which growth walloped value, even though growth stocks are significantly overpriced compared to value stocks. (Yes, growth stocks are supposed to be more expensive than value stocks - but not by nearly the gap that exists today.) Similarly, foreign stocks again lagged U.S. stocks despite being cheaper than U.S. stocks when measured against earnings and sales.The lessons I take away from that? Overweight foreign and value stocks slightly, but don't get carried away. Don't try to time the market, and be patient with what looks attractive. Diversification is still your best friend.With that in mind, here are my five best stock funds for retirement savers in 2020. SEE ALSO: The 25 Best Low-Fee Mutual Funds to Buy in 2020

    6 Best Health Care Funds for a Volatile Market

    Let's face it: The stock market is infuriating. Valuations are high, global growth is slow, and President Donald Trump's trade war with China has brought elevated volatility to stocks. Meanwhile, bonds, the only sensible alternative, are at near-record high prices and thus offer puny yields.What's an investor to do? One partial remedy is to increase your investment in health care stocks.Health care, which comprises more than 15% of Standard & Poor's 500-stock index, is the only broad market sector that can hold its own in both bull and bear markets. Although, no question, its best performance relative to the overall stock market comes during selloffs. In 2018, for instance, while the S&P; 500 retreated by 4.6% on a total-return basis (price plus dividends), the health care sector gained 5.6%.Which would you rather have: a shiny new BMW or your health? To ask the question is to answer it. If you're really sick, you'll do whatever it takes to recover, no matter the cost. You'll skip the new car, if necessary. Demand for health care is virtually inelastic. What's more, as baby boomers age, they're requiring more medical care. Simultaneously, breakthrough advances in the treatments of diseases - often expensive treatment - continue at a rapid clip.Below are my six best health care funds, in no particular order.
