Two Great Value Funds Reopen

This is a great time to begin investing a little every month in either Dodge & Cox Stock or Longleaf Partners -- or both.

Warren Buffett once likened investing to batting in baseball. The only difference: In investing, there's no penalty for watching strikes whiz by. The trick is to wait for a truly fat pitch, then swing away.

In Dodge & Cox Stock and Longleaf Partners, which both just reopened to new investors, I think you have two of the fattest pitches in mutual fundom. I don't think there are any better value funds.
