Franklin Advisory Services is a research-driven fundamental investment advisor that pursues a value-oriented equity investment strategy. They employ a bottom-up security selection process to analyze individual securities. This process focuses on the market price of a company's securities relative to the firm's evaluation of the company's potential long-term earnings, asset value or cash flow. Franklin looks for under-researched and out-of-favor companies that offer the potential for attractive long-term returns. This may include current growth companies that are being ignored by the market, former growth companies that have recently stumbled whose stock price is dropping sharply but that have the potential for growth and companies that are or may be potential turnaround candidates or takeover targets.
