Nick and John Calamos

I nominate Nick and John Calamos. They have put together a great record at Calamos Growth -
14.4 % annually over the last 10 years. However, the turnover on this fund is 76 % a year -
too high for our purposes. I noticed though, that they are now buying value stocks in
Calamos Value and there the annual turnover is only 30%. So perhaps worth following.

Oddly enough, one of these guys lives in my parent's neighborhood and spoke at my alma mater. Here's a recent commencement speech by John Calamos, it gives some insight into him (but not really his investing). http://www.calamos.com/CommencementSpeech.aspx

He seems like a cool guy.
