Market Selloff Affect Franklin Resources' Q4 Flows and AUM; No Change to FVE at $25 per Share

Greggory Warren Sector Strategist

Analyst Note

| Greggory Warren |

There was little in narrow-moat rated Franklin Resources' fiscal fourth-quarter results that would alter our long-term view of the firm. We are leaving our $25 per share fair value estimate in place, and view the shares as being modestly undervalued.
