TCW's Tom McKissick to Discuss Case for U.S. Equities on Conference Call

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) - The TCW Group (TCW), an international asset-management firm, invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday, October 20 with Tom McKissick, portfolio manager of the TCW Concentrated Value Fund (TGFFX/TGFVX). 

The title of Mr. McKissick's presentation is "U.S. Equities: Undervalued and Underowned." Mr. McKissick, a group managing director at TCW, will discuss recent economic reports that argue against a double-dip recession and how a strengthening economy should reward high quality large cap stocks that have underperformed the market since early 2009.

"Today's investment environment presents meaningful opportunities for active value managers with patience and conviction to go against the grain and buy fundamentally sound companies at undervalued stock prices," said Mr. McKissick. "High quality companies have consistently outperformed low quality companies over the long run and we expect that to continue."

Please dial in 10 minutes before the scheduled start time to register for the call.

Date: Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Time: 1:15 p.m. Pacific Time / 4:15 p.m. Eastern Time
