The First Insider Look Into Sir John's Investing Strategies
Sir John Templeton is “The greatest stock picker of the century.”
“Sir John Templeton's savvy went beyond that of the investment world. A mother asked him what was the best investment advice she could give her son, and he responded 'to tithe.' He encouraged me and others to seek the spiritual truths that are every bit as incontrovertible as the physical laws that impact our universe, and then make a commitment to live by them. He was a giant not only in his 'out of the box' investment acumen, but also for his understandings of the broader issues of life.”
-Foster Friess, Founder/Fund Manager, Friess Associates Inc.
“Sir John Templeton knows well the royal road to riches for passive investors. First, be price conscious-buy bargains. Second, focus on the long term outlook. Third, don't pay attention to the short term outlook knowing that most bargains are created when the near term outlook is poor to clouded. Investing the Templeton Way provides an excellent road map for investors who seek to get into the details of how best to emulate Sir John and his fabulous success.”
-Martin J. Whitman, portfolio manager, Third Avenue Value Fund
“Through his generous counseling sessions at Lyford Cay in our early days, his sagacious investing, and personal example, Sir John inculcated more important principles into our culture at Southeastern Asset Management, Inc. than any other. Similarly, Investing the Templeton Way offers the novice as well as the professional invaluable guidance that will make you a better investor. It should not only be read, but absorbed.”
-Mason Hawkins, chairman and chief executive officer, Southeastern Asset Management, Inc., advisor to the Longleaf Partners Funds
