Chou Funds

I just thought I’d point readers to a recent article in globeinvestor about my favorite Canadian mutual fund manager Francis Chou. I like his disciplined, methodical and deep-value approach to investing and although I’m personally not a big fan of mutual funds I own, and like the Chou Associates Fund for the following reasons:

•I think Francis Chou is a seasoned pro at finding deep value before the market

•He invests in markets that I do not have the time to follow

•15yr return 15.5%

•He invests for the long term and is not concerned with quarter to quarter fluctuations

•Very methodical investing style

•MER of 1.74% (in my opinion it is worth every penny)

(Disclaimer: I’m not your boss or your spouse so do you own research and make your opinions on when to buy or sell. Nothing I say should be bastardized or construed in any way to be advice)

Excellent choice! I have held Chou RRSP for 2 years for the reasons you described. Chou RRSP isn't a closet index fund, and its deviation from tech stocks in the late 90's was no accident.

I jumped into the associattes fund last nov and then this spring into the rrsp fund and i'm taking a bath on the dollar as a result. But I'm looking out five years plus so I can wait for him to work his magic. Don.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress

switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.

net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your
blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

I absolutely love this flat iron! I get compliments on how

healthy my hair looks, even from my hair dresser. It straightens and curls without damaging. I compared it to the Chi and the Chi didn't stand a chance, left my hair semi-frizzy and creased and the nano pro

left my hair shiny and smooth. Extra long plates cut my routine in half... I refer this product to everyone!!!

Hi there! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a lot of
work? I am completely new to running a blog however I do write in my diary daily.
I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and
i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of
spam responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything

It's genuinely very complicated in this active life to listen news on Television, thus I only use web for that purpose, and take the hottest information.

Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few
of the images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think
its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
