Early Favorites for Morningstar Manager of the Year--Domestic Stock
Who's in front heading 'round the bend?
It's September, and the end of the year is in sight. With that in mind, I took a look around to find out which managers appear to be in the running for our Domestic-Stock Manager of the Year award. I looked for managers having a great year, but I also wanted a great long-term track record (at least 10 years). For the sake of variety here, I skipped over those who have already won the award--but they are eligible to win.
Our award recognizes managers who have contributed to shareholder well being over both the short and long haul. We also look for good stewards. The award is intended as recognition of past contributions rather than a prediction of future success. (Our Analyst Picks do the latter.)
So, what follows is a list of front-runners. It's not a short list that we will choose from. In fact, the way the markets are whipping around these days, you can be sure that year-to-date performance rankings will shift quite a bit from now until the end of the year.
