It looks like Dodge & Cox
will sweep Morningstar's best manager awards for 2004. The San Francisco-based fund firm's managers are taking early leads in both the domestic and international stock manager awards.
As of Monday at 10:38am, Dodge & Cox's domestic stock team had 47.9 percent of the vote, with Marty Whitman of Third Avenue in second with 25.0 percent, Will Danoff of Fidelity with 13.4 percent, Brian Berghuis of T. Rowe Price with 9.15 percent and Chris Davis and Ken Feinberg of Selected American with 4.88 percent. Anyone interested is free to vote
for the best international manager is even less tight, with Dodge & Cox's international team currently pulling in 89.3 percent of the vote next to also unnamed Causeway's international value team's 10.7 percent.
Investors following the awards will only be able to pile money into Dodge & Cox's International Fund, however; the firm's Balanced Fund and Stock Fund are both closed
to new investors.
