Spears Garners Praise from Barron's

Fundsters interested in Tweedy, Browne or foreign large-cap value investing may want to take a look at Barron's. On Saturday J.R. Brandstrader profiled Browne's Tweedy, Browne Global Value and portfolio manager John Spears.

The $4 billion no-load, no 12b-1 fee fund is up 5.66 percent year-over-year (compared to a 1.02 percent drop for its index), up 16.49 percent year-over-year (compared to a 2.20 percent rise for its index) and 9.68 percent over the past 15 years (compared to a 4.52 percent rise for its index). Spears manages the fund with Tweedy's William Browne, Thomas Shrager and Bob Wyckoff.

The article both profiles Spears' investing strategy and gives a bit of his life story.
