This is somewhat old news, but still newsworthy: Bill Miller’s Legg Mason Value Trust Fund has beaten the S&P500 for the 15th consecutive year. Canadian investors can invest in this fund through the CI Value Trust fund.
It is interesting that in the past two and a half years, he hasn’t been able to beat the S&P 500 Equal-Weight Index (^SPXEW) (as tracked by the Rydex Equal-Weight S&P 500 ETF (RSP)). This plot goes back a bit further. You can see that Legg Mason Value Trust has only beaten the S&P 500 Equal-Weight Index (^SPXEW) in the last 6 months. In 2005, 2004, and the portion of 2003 (the index’s year of inception), ^SPXEW has beaten Bill Miller’s Fund.
