    Good fund to get into

    I just got into TAVIX. I've been watching it for a while. I like the fund manager's approach and philosphy. I am glad the price is beaten down - it gives me a chance to pick up more shares.

    I've tried being a stock picker and I just can't produce enough returns to justify the time involved.

    It looks to me like TAVIX should do well over the next 3-5 years. The fund manager obviously understands macroeconomic factors and he is doing his homework on individual companies.

    I like value investing. I just couldn't do it for myself - especially for foreign equities. This should be a nice balance against a domestic large cap fund like DODGX.

    Surely there are a lot of other individual investors out there who will develop an interest in TAVIX.
