INDEX FUND CONTRARIAN
Challenging popular opinion is never easy, however it is second nature to a hardy few including global value investor David Winters. Wintergreen Fund’s portfolio manager took on the tech craze in the 1990’s. He is now raising the alarm about the flood of money pouring into index funds. Of particular concern are what he calls “look through” expenses, hidden costs in a number of S&P 500 companies caused by high executive compensation packages and stock dilution to pay for them.
