Artisan Value is a large-company stock fund and a member of the Kiplinger 25, the annual list of our favorite no-load funds.
Managers George Sertl Jr., Scott Satterwhite and Jim Kieffer combine stock screens with fundamental analysis to find companies that generate robust cash flow, have strong balance sheets and trade at bargain prices -- including those experiencing a lot of selling by corporate insiders. It's not unusual for Artisan's managers to be buying when seemingly everyone else is selling.
