Who are the most influential value investors in today's market?

I'm working on putting together a list of the most influential value investors that are active in today's market. So far I have:

  • Warren Buffett
  • Charlie Munger
  • Joel Greenblatt
  • Mohnish Pabrai
  • Marty Whitman
  • Eddie Lampert
  • Seth Klarman
  • Whitney Tilson
  • Carl Icahn
  • Bill Miller
  • Bill Ruane
  • John Templeton
  • Bill Nygren
  • Prem Watsa
  • Lou Simpson
  • Irving Kahn
  • David Winters
  • Arnold Van Den Berg
  • Bruce Berkowitz
  • Ronald Muhlenkamp
  • Wallace Weitz
  • Meryl Witmer

This list is in no particular order at the moment. I'll add to the list as I get additional suggestions. Have I missed any of your favorite value investors?

Daniel S. Loeb
David Einhorn

Thank you for adding those two names.

I think I'm going to create a poll for members to vote on who they consider to be the most influential value investors. Is the above list still missing any names?

Charles Brandes

Thanks for adding Charles Brandes to the list. I'm thinking of creating a list where members can vote up or down the most influential value investors. I might create the functionality here or I might use the new UnSpun service by Amazon. Stay tuned...

I think O. Mason Hawkins and Stanley Cates from Longleaf should be added.

Ok, guys, I'm going to be tough and rough and that is life so I will not surprise you: some guys on this list resemble to liquid yeast and that is not a good thing.

Tom Gayner of Markel
David Dreman

and perhaps, Chris Davis of Davis Funds
