Tweedy, Browne Global Value Message Board

    Chris Browne's book

    Just finished reading The Little Book of Value Investing by one of TBGVX's portfolio managers, Chris Browne. He reinforces why I like the company and the fund---a lot of common sense backed up by research. And he even makes a lucid case for why TBGVX continues to hedge into the US dollar.

    Wonderful book, and a quick read. Published in 2007 by John Wiley & Sons.

    • I also just finished Chris Browne's book and I agree with every thing you've said. I have only one suggestion...the book goes into great detail on how to find/pick value stocks. I wish it would have discussed strategies for when to sell.

      As for the tweedy funds...I'm more inclined to buy the global fund given Chris' comments about increasing their chances of finding value opportunities. It also sounds like the average value investor would not easily recognize some of these foreign opportunities due to differences is accounting practices (see book for example). For these reasons I might be willing to "hire" Tweedy.

      As far as the domestic fund goes...I was a bit surprised to see it did not outperform the S&P500 during the last year. Perhaps the time period was not long enough.

      Comments welcome...
