Bill Miller of Miller Value Partners (Trades, Portfolio) just released hisÂ first-quarter 2019 commentary. I read Miller every quarter because I read most "value"-oriented investors' commentaries if the investors tend to be focused on fundamentals and have a pessimistic outlook.
It is both Miller's biggest fault and greatest strength that he tends to be positioned according to a bullish outlook. Below are a few of the most interesting paragraphs from his commentary. Of course, I don't pretend to know more than the highly accomplished Miller, but I enjoy his letter because it draws me out of

With shares trading at just $111 a piece, Citron sees more than 100% upside, setting its price target at $250 per share.
What does Citron like so much about a brick-and-mortar retailer? Is its

In the $116 billion home furnishings industry, there are very few luxury brands that people know regardless of where you live. Williams Sonoma (WSM) is one, RH (RH) is the other.
When price is not a consideration, the company, which was formerly known as Restoration Hardware, is a clear choice. Having visited many across the country, its showrooms are truly magnificent.

“I think you can monetize the volatility in the market, which is what we try and do,” he said.
The founder, chairman and chief investment officer of Miller Value PartnersÂ went on to say there have been 23 corrections of at least 5% in the last 10 years.
“And corrections go deep enough to scare everybody out and also then the market -- I guess market structure has been

The last time I updated you on Miller, he saw a bull market without end. While he hasn’t switched gears much, he is faced with the reality of current markets wildly gyrating. There are four main subjects: market observations, the government deficit, tariffs and interest rates in relationship to market price-earnings ratios. I’ll dive into and discuss the most important points. To see his full discussion, visit the Miller Value site.
Bill Miller of Miller Value Partners just published hisÂ third-quarter letter. As per usual, it is original thinking.
