The California Public Employees Retirement system says its portfolio grew by more than 16 percent last year. 

The returns were boosted by a run-up in stock prices.

The performance more than doubled CALPERS' official forecast of seven-and-a-half percent. 

However, the retirement system still has a long-term shortfall, due largely to the huge losses suffered during the 2008 stock market crash.

CALPERS' board is expected to consider an increase in contribution rates next month.
