NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Gregg Greenberg spoke to Bill Smead, portfolio manager of the Smead Value Investor Fund, about some of his favorite stock picks.
Franklin Resources (BEN) is a stock that Smead continues to watch, saying the lower it goes the more interested he becomes.
Due to the large exposure to foreign bonds and emerging markets, it's no surprise Franklin is selling off amid violent global volatility in nearly all asset classes.
