Responsible returns

For Americans who invest according to conscience, social resposibility investing (SRI) paid off nicely last year. SRI mutual funds generally invest in stocks of companies that eschew tobacco, gambling, weapons production, and alcohol.

Not only do these funds promote certain values, several delivered some impressive returns.
