Using GARP to Find Investing Opportunities

Robert Maltbie  |

When trying to identify unique opportunities in the market, one metric that has been tried and true by many successful and notable investors is using the GARP method. GARP, which is growth at a reasonable price, is a strategy that aims to combine principles of both growth investing and value investing when screening stocks. Given that Singular Research's primary focus is uncovering small-cap stocks that tend to fall within both categories, it is easy to see why GARP is a valuable tool for what our firm does.
