The U.S. News Mutual Fund Score is produced using an equal weighting of the overall ratings provided by Morningstar, Lipper, Zacks, TheStreet.com and Standard & Poors. Individual fund rating systems are normalized to a 100-point scale based on point totals assigned to individual scoring systems. For Morningstar's and S&P's five-star ranking and Zacks five-point scale, each star or point awarded would receive 20 points. In TheStreet.com's A-to-E scale, a highly rated "A" fund would receive 100 points, while a low-rated "E" would receive 20 points. The five Lipper Leader categories are each worth a total of 20 points, giving 4 points to each 1-to-5 point scale assigned to each section of the Lipper rankings. The U.S. News score is calculated by dividing total points awarded according to the above system by the number data sources (5). The combined U.S. News Mutual Fund Score ranks funds numerically based on this score. Funds with identical scores to one decimal place are awarded the same numerical ranking. Funds must be ranked by all five data sources to receive a U.S. News Mutual Fund Score. The U.S. News Mutual Fund Score groups funds by their Morningstar fund category. However, some systems use different categorizations when ranking funds.
