Top 3 Large-Cap Value Mutual Funds To Buy

Investors interested in safer returns from stocks available at discounted prices may consider large-cap value mutual funds. While large-cap funds usually provide safer options than small- or mid-cap funds, mutual funds investing in value stocks have the potential to deliver higher returns and exhibit lower volatility than their growth and blend counterparts.

Large-cap funds generally invest in securities of companies with market capitalization of more than $10 billion. These funds have exposure to large-cap stocks that are expected to provide a long-term performance history and assure more stability than mid or small caps.

Value funds, on the other hand, generally invest in stocks that tend to trade at a price lower than their fundamentals (i.e. earnings, book value and debt-equity) and pay out dividends. Value stocks are expected to outperform the growth ones across all asset classes when considered on a long-term investment horizon and are less susceptible to trending markets.

Below we share with you three top-rated, large-cap value mutual funds. Each has earned a Zacks Mutual Fund Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and is expected to outperform its peers in the future.
