Uses newsletters and TV appearances to garner publicity, and his hedge funds to make money. A dedicated runner - up to six miles daily - Zweig now admits to needing more sleep and has advanced his bedtime a full 90 minutes to 1:30am. Sits on the board at Wharton, where he did his undergraduate work, and on occasion cooked meals for himself in a local greasy spoon. Know for his collection oddities, including a gas pump, traffic light, jukebox and old pool tables.

The Collector
Marty Zweig's cluttered 30th-floor office overlooking Third Avenue might as well be a day-care center for affluent adults. There's a huge traffic light on the windowsill, fully lit up, a five-foot toothbrush leaning in the corner given to Zweig three years ago by some Drexel colleagues who were amused by his constant brushing and flossing during a road show, a gum ball machine also perched on the windowsill that still charges a penny- if you're nice, Zweig supplies the change - and a 1950s jukebox that frequently blares during late nights. The collection but first bit 17 years ago when Zweig bought several old stock certificates, one signed by Commodore Vanderbilt. But now it's gotten a little out of control. Zweig's favorite new toys are tow old gas pumps that are almost identical to those he saw daily in the Mobil station across from his childhood home in Cleveland. Zweig found a place in Arizona that was advertising old pumps and he called up, certain they could not be like the ones he remembered, complete with the flying red horse. "He said, 'We have wo of them - you want regular or ethyl?' " Zweig says with a laugh. "I said I'll take them both." On the wall across from his desk hangs his high school basketball uniform encased in glass, given to him by an old high school buddy at his surprise 45th birthday party. Zweig still muses, "I don't know how the hell he got it."

Marty Zweig, 50, is almost as well-known for his eclectic collection of such pricey toys as a traffic light and an antique pool table as he is for his newsletter, the Zweig Forecast, and his Wall Street Week appearances, which he has been making regularly since the early Seventies. Zweig, who has a doctorate in finance from Michigan State, runs a number of open-end and closed-end mutual funds as well, but he makes his biggest bucks form his hedge funds, which outperformed all his investment vehicles last year and charge 20% incentive fees. A Cleveland Indians fan since 1948 and a self-proclaimed Fifties nostalgia buff, he regularly throws Fifties theme parties in his East Hampton, NY home.

He started as an investment newsletter writer, but today Martin Zweig steers an investment management supermarket. For the do-it-yourself crowd, he still edits one of four investment letters that have performed better than the market since the mid-1980s, according to a newsletter scorekeeper. He has more than $7 billion under management in open-end mutual funds, closed-end funds and two hedge funds, as well as pension funds through Avatar Associates. When the 50-year-old Zweig, who holds a Ph.D. in finance from Michigan State, isn't making pronouncements about our macroeconomic future, hes playing with his legendary toys, ranging from traffic lights to jukeboxes to a three-dimensional artwork of a 1957 Chevrolet, at either his New York City apartment or his Hamptons home. His streak of running an average of six miles a day hit six years.

Call it the year of the hedge funds. For this elite band, it was the best year ever.

Newsletter scribe and money manager Marty Zweig is dedicated to running. He celebrated the fifth anniversary of his uninterrupted daily jogging streak on June 21. He averages five miles per day. While on a business trip, Zweig even made sure he kept up on the streak during the 1989 earthquake in San Francisco. He has run when it was 43 degrees below zero and when it was 100 degrees above. He has even run when he though he had a broken toe.

A baseball fan who once expressed an interest in owning a team, he is said to have received offers to buy a liver of the New York Yankees for a price that would value the entire team at three times what FW says it is worth.

Compensation was way down in 1994 for Wall Streets highest earners

Marty Zweig, the human conglomerate, runs $4.3 billion in institutional accounts, $3.2 billion in open-end and closed-end mutual funds and $1.4 billion or so in hedge funds and offshore funds. Then there are his two newsletters. Being responsible for all that dough would make some people nervous. But nerves-of-steel Zweig did his "three yards and a cloud of dust" ground game in 1994, pounding steadily ahead through the year. Most of his public mutual funds were down last year, but only in the low single digits, in line with the industry averages. None of them blew up, a modest accomplishment. And his hedge funds were up a few points, better than most of the competition.

At the beginning of this year, Zweig got a chance to change his career. Seattle Mariners general manager and former high school baseball teammate Woody Woodward invited Zweig, 52, to try out as a replacement player. Zweig would have made a pretty decent designated runner. This is the sixth straight year hes managed to jog a few miles every day. Wait till next year.
