good John Templeton biography?


Recommended Posts

I am in the process of reading 'Investing the Templeton Way' and also like the book very much. The book provides many historical examples of that Templeton did at various times which I am especially enjoying. The book is also a simple read (i.e. likely targeted for novice value investors).


My key take away is I wonder if Prem's style is not closer to Templeton than Buffett:

- Prem invested heavily in the Indian stock market a couple of years ago

- Prem also is buying international insurance operations (i.e. India)

- Prem is very much an active investor (buy low and sell high) not buy and hold forever

- Prem will take large short positions
