This asset management company has a great track record and the name speaks for itself. If you havent heard or see the name Franklin Templeton Investments you havent been around the financial world or should open you eyes or turn your ears back on. These guys make money off of people that invest period. Look that the return on equity and capital. The average for the last five years for return on capital has been 16.7%. Ding...ding...thats what I like to see, a great brand name that has a excellent return on capital. And these last 5 years is the normal. If you want your stock price to go from 18 cents in 1983 to over 109 dollars as I write this pitch (over 605 times your money excluding dividends), copy what these guys have done. The business of assest management can bring great wealth if done correctly. Ask Warren Buffett, Fisher, Bruce (Fairholm), and many of other greats that mananage money. They are currently trading at a PE under 15 and decent growth ahead. I almost didnt this equity yet because of the short term growth rate and the 5 year estimates were under the 10% growth I'd like to see.....I wanted them over 10% but I will give this company the benefit of the doubt.
