Bruce Sherman: Investment Guru' at PCM takes aim at Knight Ridder

November 07, 2005

An accountant by training, Bruce S. Sherman is one of the nation's top money managers. Now he's turning his sights to Knight Ridder to score his next big deal.

Bruce S. Sherman turned his first stock market deal on his 21st birthday, when he gained control of the 10 Polaroid shares his dad had given him as a Bar Mitzvah present.

He had already scoured Polaroid's annual report, researched the company and concluded the price was overvalued -- he'd better sell while the going was good. The shares had cost his father about $20 each. The younger Sherman sold at $180.
