The technology sector became a larger and larger component of the S&P 500, the most widely followed stock index. And the technology sector became increasingly dominated by a small number of extremely large companies: Microsoft, Intel, Cisco, Dell, and so forth. Many active managers were nervous about the tech sector, especially the “mega cap” tech stocks. So they built portfolios that were more conservative than the index, and, during the growth-obsessed stage of the bull market, the performance of the active managers lagged the index.

Many years ago, when the tax laws were very different from what they are today, limited partnerships were often designed to serve as tax shelters. The basic idea was to produce an investment that generated large tax deductions without necessarily generating large economic returns. In some circumstances, the value of the tax deductions was even greater than the value of the original investment. These limited partnerships generally had high investment management fees and sales commissions, produced no real economic return, and, in the worst case scenario, left the investor arguing with tax authorities about the legitimacy of the deductions.

This obsession with financial celebrities coexisted with an opposite phenomenon: the rise of the index fund.
