Mutual Fund Manager, Bill Miller
Have been following well-known mutual-fund manager Bill Miller's track record. His 15-year string of beating the S&P 500 index finally ended in 2006. His was a remarkable performance of consistently beating the index for such a long period. I was secretly hoping that it will continue into the future as well. However, even though his streak has ended, I like to follow his stock picks when ever possible.

Surprisingly, while many professionals emphasize diversification for risk reduction, his approach seems to be focusing on the fundamentals of a select number of stocks; an approach that's similar to that of Warren Buffett. However, this approach, which helped him trounce S&P 500 index for 15 years, cost him to lose the winning record last year as his picks didn't do as well as the broader market!
