Meridian Growth Investor (MRIGX - Free Report) has a 0.87% expense ratio and 0.76% management fee. MRIGX is a Small Cap Growth mutual fund and tends to feature small companies in up-and-coming industries and markets. With yearly returns of 10.35% over the last five years, this fund clearly wins.

American Funds Washington Mutual Investors F (WSHFX - Free Report) is a stand out amongst its peers. WSHFX is a Large Cap Value mutual fund, which invests in stocks with a market cap of $10 billion of more, but whose share prices do not reflect their intrinsic value.
