Re: wall street journal and contra fund

I absolutely think it is a major drawback of active funds. They can and do accept more money even if their best ideas are gone. It can also limit their purchases to large, liquid stocks, one of the most efficiently priced areas of the market.

Shucks, that's nothing.* Everytime I go on vacation I write stuff on rest room walls.
Of course I sign REW's name , but it is still fun.* 8)
