A great sign for those managers!


Remember when Robert Sanborn was fired so Bill Nygren could take over?  It was largely Sanborn's stock picks that Nygren got credit for and Sanborn went on to knock it dead in the hedge fund business. 


Then the tragedy of the Clipper Fund!  They ousted James Gipson when his numbers temporarily sagged and they hired Chris Davis.  Chris would have been wise to not change a single investment.  But instead Davis through out all Gipson's picks to put in his own.  Thus the Clipper Fund's investors got kicked once and were getting back up when they got kicked a second time!


It is the people making these decisions that should be fired.  Anybody who reads history would fire the damn managers after they had outperformed for several years!
