We’ve seen that even the best performing managers were in the red during a rough second quarter in which the S&P 500 declined -11.86%.So imagine how bad these mutual fund managers must have performed in order to make it on our list of the second quarter’s worst.

Thankfully, this is just one quarter’s performance and not necessarily an indicator of long term results.

And if they fared better in Q3, those soon-to-be released numbers should redeem them.
