Meet George Putnam
A graduate of both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School, George Putnam, III first became involved with distressed securities as a lawyer in the late 1970s. He founded New Generation Research, Inc. in 1986 after seeing how profitable turnaround stocks could be because many investors do not understand them or are afraid of them. Since the first issue of his flagship publication The Turnaround Letter hit the presses back in 1986, Putnam has consistently practiced the same straight-forward and profitable contrarian investment philosophy.
As a distressed investor, Putnam does not follow the crowd. His Turnaround Letter purchase recommendations avoid “blue chips” and “hot” stocks—instead searching for select “troubled” companies poised for a rebound. His strategy is simple: Beaten down stocks with genuine value will prevail regardless of the overall market.
The key to profits with turnaround investing lies in skillful analysis and decades of proven experience—separating those companies that will recover and, ultimately, return to favor from those that will not. Like many things in life making this distinction is often easier said than done, and The Turnaround Letter's performance returns and impeccable reputation speak for themselves.
Frequently interviewed by Barron's, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Kiplinger, The Fiscal Times, MoneyShow.com and other financial publications, Putnam has been named USA Today's "Investment Advisor of the Year." In addition to his responsibilities at New Generation Research, Putnam also founded and serves as President and CIO of an investment adviser focused on distressed situations and serves as a Trustee for the Putnam Group of Mutual Funds.
