GARP stands for Growth at a Reasonable Price. My growth-oriented investment style focuses on fundamental analysis including cash ratios, liquidity ratios and margins. I will also invest in anticipation of potential mergers, spin-offs and perceived arbitrage opportunities.

Portfolio information

Research

My screening approach analyzes cash, cash relative to debt, assets relative to liabilities, liquidity and cash flow. Typical sources of data and company information include Barron’s, Yahoo! Finance, MSN Screener, local news, Seeking Alpha, Investopedia, BusinessWeek and Bloomberg.

Approach

My main focus is on buying growth-oriented businesses led by what I believe are strong management teams. I attempt to buy growth companies, as well as ones with cash-rich balance sheets. The companies I own also tend to have strategic competitive advantages and high barriers to entry within large target markets. At times I may target potential spin-offs and arbitrage opportunities as well.

Sell discipline

I make decisions to close positions based on the performance, or lack thereof, of the company. If an abnormally large gain is achieved in a short period, the position may be sold. If a stock is grossly overvalued, it will also be sold.

Exceptions

My strategy may change if I believe that stocks are highly overvalued, or due to merger activity, regulatory issues, world events or potential arbitrage opportunities.
