    I really admire Bill Miller, he's my kind of value/contrarian investor.

    It seems that he's been buying companies with a lot of debt and low ROA that rely on consumer spending, something that a lot of people shy away from these days.

    I'm sure many people will say that Bill caught a lucky break here but after beating the S&P500 for the past 15 years, you have to wonder if he really knows what he's doing after all.
