While the media has been making a fuss over the fact that it looks like Bill Miller’s Legg Mason Value Trust Fund won’t beat the S&P 500 this year—meaning his 15-year winning streak will end—the firm’s chairman says the celebrated portfolio manager will, once again, deliver stellar returns, Reuters reports. “I know everyone is beating on Bill Miller now, but I don’t know how many of you have beaten the market 15 years,” Legg Mason Chairman and CEO Raymond Mason told a banking conference. “He will be back. His numbers are coming back now.” So far this year, Miller is up 4.12%, after his fund was in the negative 10% territory for some time.
