GuruFocus Thanks our columnist Alex Garcia dug out these videos for us. His website www.contrarianvalueinvesting.com has enriched more than one way over the years. This from Alex:
Maybe because he retired in 1990, Peter Lynch has been lost in the shuffle as one of the industry’s top fund managers. Over his course of his investment career(late 70’s-1990), Peter Lynch averaged a 29% average return before stepping down at the helm of the then largest mutual fund, Fidelity Magallen. Unfortunately, Lynch semi-retired before the internet really took off and thus he doesn’t get the kind of exposure as Warren Buffett, Martin Whitman,etc. whose speeches, annual reports are constantly being reported by media and the blogosphere.
