BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- Mutual funds that mainly buy transportation stocks have almost doubled the 2010 returns of the S&P 500 Index, the benchmark for most diversified U.S. funds.Transportation-focused mutual funds have risen an average of 33% this year, reflecting expectations for faster economic growth in 2011. The performance may stretch well into next year if railroad-freight and airline-passenger traffic continues to increase and Internet-based sales growth remains on the same path, boosting package-delivery firms.
