2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Guru Investment Theses on Franklin Resources Inc

Bill Nygren Comments on Franklin Resources - Apr 14, 2014

We established a position in Franklin Resources (BEN), one of the world’s largest global mutual fund companies, with leading products in both equities and fixed income. For starters, we believe asset management is an attractive business and Franklin has a history of strong fund performance across various asset classes and geographies. The company is selling for less than 14x our estimate of this year’s EPS and just over 11x adjusting for net cash and securities. In our view, this is a cheap price for a well-run company in such an attractive industry. Management has historically returned capital to shareholders through stock buybacks and dividends, and with insiders owning 35% of outstanding shares, we expect Franklin to continue to be good stewards of shareholders’ capital.

From Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio)'s Oakmark Select Fund first quarter 2014 investor letter.

Top Ranked Articles about Franklin Resources Inc

Buying A Top U.S. Asset Manager Facing Temporary Headwinds
Franklin Resources (NYSE:BEN) is an asset manager providing investment service to retail and institutional investors. Funds are marketed under the well known Franklin, Templeton, Mutual Series and other brands. Franklin has over $850 billion in AUM. The asset base is more risky than is typical for asset managers with a big chunk consisting of equity investments. AUM is divided about 50-50 between equities and fixed income actually. In addition, Franklin Resources owes almost a third of the AUM to foreign investors. Retail investors also make up an important group of clients. As retail investors are more fickle as compared to their institutional counterparts, that also raises the risk profile of the company. In short; not your run-off-the-mill rocksolid asset manager. On the other hand, this type of AUM usually comes with higher returns. Read more...
