Bruce Sherman: Quiet investor shifts to limelight

November 04, 2005 | About:

Money man Bruce S. Sherman first got turned onto stocks when his father bought him a few shares of Polaroid for his bar mitzvah. He watched the stock have an extraordinary run over the next eight years, then sold it the day his father handed over ownership.

"My father asked why? ... I said I read the annual report," Sherman told an interviewer for Investment Gurus, a book that profiled Sherman and other Wall Street luminaries, such as Mario Gabelli and Peter Lynch.
