Oct. 24, 2003 — Investors moved into U.S. and international stock funds in the week ended Oct. 22, but they moved out of bond funds, according to Investment Research.

Domestic stock funds took in $4.1 billion after seeing inflows of $4.4 billion a week earlier. Funds that invest in foreign stocks attracted $400 million after suffering outflows of $200 million in the previous week.

Investors pulled $100 million out of bond funds in the latest week after putting $500 million into the funds a week earlier.

Hybrid funds, which invest in stocks and bonds, attracted $800 million, twice as much as they netted a week earlier.
