Fidelity Investments has the best feature ever. It’s called Personal Rate of Return. It’s an invaluable way to measure the gain on your investments.

I don’t study much on investing or spend much time. But, I do read the Morningstar reports that are offered on the funds that I invest in and then make my best GUESS.

This year my 401k is up 17.9%. Up from 8 or 9% from last year. I made some good guesses this year =-).

I’ll have to start researching again this year. I WAS investing in the T. Rowe Price International Growth and Income fund (now, a poor 3 star rating on Morningstar) this year, and it’s being removed from my available funds this year. So, it’s time to pick and chose something else this year.
