Jeff Auxier Comments on Franklin Resources

Guru stock highlight

November 08, 2018 | About:
Franklin Resources (NYSE:BEN) has had several quarters of negative growth in operating revenues, net income, and assets under management as they work to improve their company. Management at Franklin Resources is focused on reducing risk and augmenting their investment capabilities. Their earnings per share have not decreased as much as the rest of their financials due to management’s aggressive share buyback program. Over half the companies market capitalization is in cash. The Johnson family has run the company since 1947.

From Jeff Auxier (Trades, Portfolio)'s third-quarter 2018 shareholder commentary.
