10 Great Mutual Funds That Deliver High Income

ETF Chart of the Day: Dividend Funds






According to the report, 84% of actively managed funds did worse than their respective indices,

Last week, S&P published its 10th Annual Mutual Fund Performance Report.  According to the report, 84% of actively managed funds did worse than their respective indices,

and a staggering 96% of large cap growth funds (that’s almost all of them) failed to beat their benchmark.  The longer-term numbers aren’t much better. 

So, by default, indexing has become the logical choice for most investors.

Decide how much you want to spend and when you want to travel, and Getaway Maps will overlay the lowest fares pulled from more than 500 airlines (most of the major U.S. carriers, as well as many international ones) for a select range of cities.


Spotlights independently owned properties overseas, many of which never show up on American travel sites.
Any booking site can point you to large, widely known hotels. But you might prefer to stay in a charming inn or a small property on your next trip, especially if you're traveling to Europe. Well, Venere is the go-to source for this type of mom-and-pop lodging, which usually provides better value for the money than hotel chains.


Planning a Cruise


Research almost anything about 60 different cruise lines and gather advice on everything ship-related -- from buying travel insurance to using onboard slot machines. Caveat: Not a booking site, so prices usually aren't listed.

Malik is part of a generation of
20-somethings that�s experiencing what
it�s like to graduate from college, move
back in with your parents, and then get
stuck there.
Though estimates vary, a recent
study by Twentysomething Inc., a consulting firm specializing in marketing to young adults, predicted that of the 2 million graduates in the class of 2011, 85 percent will return home because
they can�t secure jobs that might give them more choices and more control
over their lives.

Half a century ago, 77 percent of women
and 65 percent of men had attained
traditional markers of maturity by their 30th birthday: They had left home, finished school, gotten a job, married, and started a family. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, by 2000, less than half of 30-year-old women and
just one-third of 30-year-old men had attained similar markers of adulthood.

Roberts Cottages: Staycation by the sea
From September through May, a week's stay starts at just $699 per week

" They were built in 1925. They were originally built as one complex and in the mid-50s they were split up and sold," Doug Thompson of Pacific Coast Real Estate said.

Now each cottage has a separate owner.

"Not all of the individual owners rent, but about 13 or 14 of them do. They've been getaways, and people come from all over," Doug said.

Fodors describe their website as travel intelligence, and that is exactly what it provides, a vast source of knowledge, resources and articles on a wide selection of destinations and subjects.
To put it simply Fodors is an outstanding online travel resource.

? What Expedia’s Acquisition of Orbitz
and Travelocity Means for Travelers

Expedia.com (best for car rentals)
Expedia is the world's leading online travel agency and offers great great deals on air, hotel, vacation packages, cruise, car rentals, and in-destination services. They have partnerships with over 500 travel partners including direct airline and hotel suppliers and more than 140,000 lodging properties worldwide so it is no surprise that they offer some of the best travel deals online. Expedia is the benchmark by which the rest of the online travel industry is measured.


Travelocity is an outstanding "one stop shop" for travel
They guarantee the lowest price, and their service is highly regarded, but what really sets them apart is the fact that they look out for you throughout your trip with guaranteed service. In fact, they offer a guarantee so complete it is the most comprehensive in the travel industry today.



Hotels.com lets you search just one site for accommodations at hundreds of thousands of properties. You can find particularly good last-minute deals, which are updated daily. But even advance-travel planners can score big bargains with the site's seasonal sales, destination-specific deals and other special offers.

Frequent travelers will appreciate the simplicity of the site's Welcome Rewards program — for every ten nights you spend at any combination of the program's 100,000 member properties, you'll earn a free night's stay worth up to the average daily rate of your ten nights.





Booking.com specializes in hotels and other travel accommodations, so it shouldn't come as a surprise they top the list of the best hotel booking sites. They offer deals on vacation rentals, hostels, and bed and breakfasts, as well as many other hard-to-find property types. Booking.com customers have reported a high degree of satisfaction with their service, particularly the ease of the booking process.




Harnessing the power of the masses, the user-hotel-review site TripAdvisor is the top way to hunt for hotels.
We admit that the site's spectrum of good, bad, and mixed reviews for the same property can be confusing. But you know what? After reading the reviews and disregarding ones that seem off or biased, you get a decent sense of what to expect in a hotel—which is the point.




Hotwire helps their customers save a considerable amount on their hotel reservations by keeping the name of the travel site you're booking with a secret until after you've purchased a room. Doing this enables Hotwire's travel partners to get rid of their unsold rooms while offering you significantly lower rates than those you'll find with many of the other top hotel sites.

Search hotels by ratings in your city of choice, and the site turns up an impressive mix of reduced rates on rooms at luxury properties. Our recent results: 23 percent off a room at the Biltmore, in Coral Gables, and 15 percent off at the Goring, in London. Caveat: The best deals take digging.


Strictly for booking plane trips entirely outside of the U.S., such as a flight between Paris and Rome.
