Bill Miller is awful, he should have quit while he was ahead.

When Freddie was taken down, he was the largest shareholder.  What an idiot.

I'd like to get Leo's take on this news. Leo was willing to vouche for his investing acumen a couple of weeks ago.

why would that surprise you, Miller and Leo have the exact same mindset.

I'm not surprised just curious. I have been observing weighing commentary of various participants since this time last year. When the next correction comes, and it will, I'll be ready to participate in the game.

Where is Leo?

 

He had some interesting comments about Bill Miller a week or two ago.

I am right here. Before you all write off Bill Miller, keep in mind he did beat the S&P 500 for 15 years running:

Admittedly, this was during the bull run. Now, he is facing a slump but I am not as quick as all of you to write him off. And only an idiot would call him an idiot. Ray Dalio once asked me "son, what's you track record?" All of you pooing on Bill Miller, WTF is your track record?

Good question... so, what is yours, Leo?

Leo, you are like a fucking child, with your ad hominem attacks.

The point isn't what is everyone else's track record, because everyone else aren't putting themselves out there to manage other people's money.

The point is what is Bill Miller's long run track record vs his benchmark.  And not some select point in time.  LTCM had a great track record for years.

Where will they put their money if they do not want stocks, bonds, and do not want the DoeLarr?  DXY is running flat!  Silver snitches.

as of this minute, Gold down, Silver down, DOLLAR down, Amazon up.

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

Gold looked strong today.  It had major upside at the height of the storm.  Amazon spamazon.  AMZN is in a downtrend.  The bullshit stock I liked today was WFMI.  Gained as the market fell.  Can you say commodities?  Say it.....saay iit......

another $12B of MBS bought this past week, what happens to the markets when this liquidity spigot gets turned off?

btw, note that once again almost all the purchases were fannies.  why the charade?  why doesn't Zimbabwae Ben just print a few suitcases full of money and drive them to Fannie's headquarters?

Because he would need to take 10 million such suitcases in a convoy of semis and the sheeple just might notice.

Miller's combover is as outdated as his investment strategies.

I wonder if there's an indirect correlation between Bill Miller buying a yacht, the utopia, and the peformance of his fund?

I don't understand the Trifecta. If you are going to build Internet 2 running it all through the NSA using your newly corrupted and wholy screwed over university assets why google, apple and amazon. Is amazon going to be the sole propieter of the New New New internet economy and is going to run off Macs?

Miller I believe lost 50% in 2008, then made 70% last year.

So $100 as of 1/1/08 is $85 as of 1/1/10

He is touting last year's gains while neglecting to mention that virtually all of his investors are underwater from 2007. Such BS and he is finally being rightfully punished as investors head for the exits.

I'm quite certain Bill Miller has lost more money for investors than he ever made because his AUM was so high during the collapse of his fund. His average annual returns over the past 15 year period are somewhat respectable, while over the past 10 years they are abysmal.

Legg Mason shows "investing legend" Miller's returns at this page.

Pretty unimpressive.
