Fidelity Dividend Growth (FDGKX)

Fund profile: The fund has been prominent in Fidelity's stable and should do well given the emphasis on dividend-paying stocks in the current investment environment. But this year the large-blend category has struggled mightily. Its 536-stock portfolio has been managed by Lawrence Rakers since September 2008. Morningstar says returns have been volatile, "but it's a fine fund for a patient investor."

Performance: down 10.7%, putting it in the 94th percentile versus its large-blend category peers and 7 percentage points below their average return. But over three years it has an admirable 19.8% annual average return.

Assets: $8.5 billion

Worst picks: Citigroup (C - Get Report), its second-largest holding, down 43%; Wells Fargo (WFC - Get Report), down 14%; JPMorgan Chase (JPM - Get Report), down 24%.
