“Financial Alchemist” Turley McFadden Muller (1978-2020).
From The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal, Jan. 18, 2020:
Memphis, TN – Turley McFadden Muller died peacefully at home. He graduated from Kimball Union Academy, one of the ten oldest prep schools in the country, located in Meriden, New Hampshire. He received a Business Degree at Rhodes College, where he was president of his fraternity, Sigma Nu. He received his Master’s Degree in accounting from Christian Brothers University. He was, at one time, the #1 Amateur Apple Analyst, and was published in numerous financial articles. Turley was also recognized by CNBC for his expertise in Apple Earnings.
He was a former accountant for Memphis Leadership Foundation, and also was a mortgage trading analyst at Union Planters Mortgage.
Turley enjoyed skiing at Deer Valley, and fishing at Pickwick. He was a kind and thoughtful friend, and never had a bad word to say about anyone.
My take: Turley was one the smartest Apple analyst I’ve known, amateur or pro. He was a loyal Apple 3.0 reader, an active participant and a regular winner in my quarterly Earnings Smackdowns, scoring at or near the top of the Best and Worst analysts lists (see, for example, Q3 2019). My sympathies to his parents, his brothers and the extended Muller family.
