Winners and Losers

THE BEST RETURNS
Among the 500 largest equity funds, Moscow's soaring stock market powered several funds to stunning gains. Economic recovery gave Latin funds a boost, while a bull market in electronics stocks pushed up Taiwan funds.

THE WORST RETURNS
How do you spell trouble for Japan funds? Try a sagging Nikkei and a rising dollar. Thailand's stock market collapse also dealt investors a nasty blow, as did the long-running retrenchment in U.S. high-tech equities.
