Winters and His Trains Make Barron's

News summary by MFWire's editors

David Winters wins recognition for his "remarkable track record" and his miniature trains from Barron's. The founder and PM of the Wintergreen Fund [profile] has a family-room that "features a 'tour de railroad' with all the typical hills and dales," according to the weekly.

The former Franklin Resources PM (actually he was a Michael Price devotee) who struck out on his own in 2005 also likes chocolates, or at least he likes Nestlé stock.

"I had excess capital when I was five [he saved his allowance] and bought a savings bond yielding 18% with the help of my mom," he recalls. It was about that time he also started collecting miniature trains, which eventually got him interested in railroad securities being sold by the late Hans Jacobson, a specialist who traded the bonds of bankrupt railroads. Jacobson hired him, but Winters later jumped at the chance to work with Price.
The paper also credits Winter's "go-anywhere approach" and long term track record to the mutual fund's growth despite its $10,000 minimum.
