  • Age: 37
  • Title: Portfolio Manager
  • Company: Fidelity Investments

Myers is a bright star at Fidelity, where he manages $10.5 billion in small-cap stocks. You've probably never heard of his top holdings—companies like Berry Petroleum and j2 Global. But his picks during the financial crisis have driven his two mutual funds to outperform all but a handful of competitors over the past five years. His secret? Avoiding distractions. He doesn't have voicemail and spends most days inside his quiet office studying dozens of companies. Advice he would have given his 20-year-old self: Buy Apple.
