One of the most difficult things for any investor to do with any level of consistency is to outperform the S&P 500 Composite Index. Many try, and many fail. There are, however, a few funds that can come pretty close at times, and Franklin Templeton’s FundGrade® A-rated Franklin Bissett U.S. Focus Corporate Class is one such fund.

* Market wrap Nov. 20, 2015: Bullish sentiment grips markets.
* AGF buys out Boston-based ETF shop FFCM.
* TMX announces fund-trading platform for dealers.

Bullish sentiment prevailed once again in global stock markets last week, as the major stock indices staged rallies to end the week with strong gains.
