A value-oriented portfolio that Morningstar began tracking a year ago, dubbed "The Tortoise," returned 20%, whereas a growth-oriented "Hare" portfolio lost nearly 19% of its value, Morningstar announced last week. Morningstar launched the two portfolios, which have averaged 15 holdings apiece, last June and is basing these performance figures on the 12-month period ending June 17.

The Tortoise portfolio, which has a heavy weighting in retail stocks, outperformed the S&P 500 Index by 34%, whereas the Hare underperformed the S&P 500 by 5%.
