Detailed Analysis of TRUIST FINANCIAL CORP
About Peter Lynch: Perhaps the greatest mutual fund manager of all-time, Lynch guided Fidelity Investment’s Magellan Fund to a 29.2 percent average annual return from 1977 until his retirement in 1990, almost doubling the S&P 500’s 15.8 percent yearly return over that time. Lynch’s common sense approach and quick wit made him one of the most quoted investors on Wall Street. (“Go for a business that any idiot can run — because sooner or later, any idiot probably is going to run it,” is one of his many pearls of wisdom.) Lynch’s bestseller One Up on Wall Street is something of a “stocks for the everyman/everywoman”, breaking his approach down into easy-to-understand concepts.
