Looking for information or sources of information on Laszlo Birinyi, his philosphy on investing,
stock picks, mutual funds he runs.

Hello Maw,

He has a a web page

but I don't think it has much. He is usually bullish on the US market overall. I see him on Wall$treet Week with Louis Rukeyser on PBS from time to time (not much on their web page either) and I hang on his every word because of his overall stock picking performance compared to the other 'elves' on the show.

Last New year's, when the program invites the best stock pickers of the year back to make their predictions, something unusual happened as I recall. He picked some large-cap value stocks and they have not done very well so far this year. Sorry, but I did not send in the five bucks W$W wants for a printed version of the elves' recommendations for 2000 and I cannot remember exactly what he was recommending. In past years, and unfortunately for me, I recall not buying his recommended stocks because I thought the PE ratios were just too high for my tastes.

Still, this was three months before the growth tech stocks peaked in March and then promptly fell 30%; and, despite his nine-month fall from Rukeyser performance-tracking grace, I cannot but help wonder if he has just seen the future a little earlier than the others and he may, indeed, be one of the first to see a return to days of value investing. I will still be hanging on his every word.

Hope this helps,

-- John
