1) Vanguard - prudent funds, rock-bottom fees, mutually owned by fund shareholders, thus structurally less incentive to gouge people for profit... also strong corporate ethic from Jack Bogle (now retired)
2) Bridgeway - owner heavily invested in funds, many with performance-based fees (a disincentive to "asset bloat"), testified to congress against "soft-dollar" arrangements many funds have
3) Dodge & Cox - low turnover, cheap, staid, great long term performance, no "flavor-of-the-month" funds
4) T. Rowe Prive - good investor education, reasonable fees, prudent managers, though they did introduce 2 *additional* tech funds during the bubble...
5) Oakmark - not sure about the owners of the company, but the fund managers are smart and straightforward, good shareholder communications
6) Weitz - smart guy, Warren Buffett likes him, steady value-oriented investing, informative quarterly letters as well as conference calls you can listen in on
As for Janus, I'm not sure the worst is priced in. I sold my Janus Worldwide holdings this past week. Depends how many other Janus fundholders are disgusted enough to do the same.
I like Vanguard and T.Rowe Price funds, but I am open to suggestions for where else I should put my money. Even though Janus finally has some positive returns this year, it has been around 15% while my individual stock account with Etrade has returned 75% and that's with holding all my stocks which I bought at the beginning of the year. And I don't have an ivy league degree.
