Tough Times Test Templeton

News summary by MFWire's editors

These may the times that test Franklin Templeton’s soul.

Franklin Resources reported a net income for this quarter of 92 cents per share, missing analyst consensus of 95 cents, reports Bloomberg. Share prices dropped 1.8 percent as a result, the wire reports.

The newswire cites Sandler O’Neill analyst Michael Kim, who says that Franklin’s lower cost funds saw more growth than their higher fee products.

Bloomberg also reports that a big driver of flows for the firm, Michael Hasenstab’s $72-billion Templeton Global Bond Fund, (which Morningstar data says outperformed 99 percent of its peers for the past 10-years) has seen outflows this year because Hasenstab has invested heavily in off-shore debt from the Ukraine.

Barron’s notes that Hasenstab has taken a number of notable bets recently, including heavy allocations into troubled Ghana.
