We highlight the investment philosophies of Peter Lynch. Lynch took over the Magellan Fund at age 33 in 1977. Perhaps his biggest contribution to the Finance world was his book ‘One Up On Wall Street’. His basic approach to investing could best be summarized as “buy what you know.” What goods and services are you buying for your family? He suggests using that as a basis to start learning more about a company. We have the same common sense approach at Dupree Financial Group when we research companies.
