By the Numbers: Funds Mutual Fund Analyst Picks Analyst Picks are chosen by the Morningstar fund analysts who specialize in each category. Our analysts scrutinize more than 2,000 mutual funds to come up with favorites for each category. Analysts make their selections on a variety of factors, including a fund’s historical risk and return and costs on a quantitative basis. Qualitatively, we also consider consistent strategy, experienced management, and strong stewardship. Because we recognize that different funds come with different risks, each category may contain picks that are vastly different from each other. There were 187 Analyst Picks as of April 30, 2011.
