U.S. investors pushed equity funds to their third consecutive quarter of plus-side performance in Q4 2020 as they focused on the creation and late month distribution of nascent COVID-19 vaccines and another round of fiscal stimulus from Congress. For Q4 2020, the average equity fund posted a 16.62% return, with Lipper’s U.S. Diversified Equity (USDE) Funds macro-classification (+18.94%) outpacing the other six major equity groups for the second quarter in three. In this segment, I highlight the fourth quarter, December, and 2020 performance results for equity mutual funds and ETFs.
