Three Peter Lynch Videos You Might Have Missed

June 04, 2009

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.

Peter Lynch and Sir John Templeton

In this video, Lynch covers some of his rules for successful stock market investing as described in his books. Stock price usually follows a companies profits Buy what you know (at the right price) Timing is tough

Peter Lynch On The Stock Market

I do not know the exact date of this video, but that’s irrelevant in my opinion. It’s good to have knowledge on the history of the stock market and how to manage a portfolio during market downturns, such as knowing which kind of stocks to own, what to do with market

surprises,etc.. This video covers some of the basics.

Peter Lynch On Bottom Fishing

A couple of words on bottom fishing: Good luck!!!!

Anyone know the name of the other individual in the third video? If you do, congrats you are a stock market junkie
