GARP Research Independent, Fundamental, Contrarian Analysis

GARP Research is an 11-person independent equity research firm for U.S. mid-cap and small-cap growth companies with a decade-long track record of insightful analysis and strong results. We receive no corporate finance or trading income from the companies we cover.

We currently have in-depth coverage of approximately 100 stocks. The firm prides itself on deep, fundamental and often contrarian analysis and is well-known for in-depth company reports focusing on competition and market potential. Additionally, GARP analysts visit over 50 companies each year in order to deliver 15 new recommendations annually.

GARP’s coverage criteria and research methodology are unique. Recommendations are driven by an investment philosophy that focuses on long-term growth, quality, and control of risk. We favor companies that boast high market share, high gross margins, a limited need to employ capital, and possess enduring competitive advantages.

Although we have a long-term orientation, we have produced excellent short-term results because of our ability to identify valid long-term growth drivers, and our discipline of waiting for catalysts to emerge.

We search for high quality as determined by actual or potential high return on capital employed (ROCE), competitive advantages, and the ability to gain market share over a multi-year period while achieving higher profitability than peers.  Companies typically generate cash, grow organically, and are well financed.

We control risk by technically analyzing long-term stock charts and employing a proprietary valuation methodology. We typically recommend a stock after it has declined significantly and based-out over many quarters. We avoid momentum stocks, falling knives, and other potentially risky trading formations.

In addition to our regularly published fundamental research products, we host a unique and highly acclaimed bi-annual investment conference, regional analyst “Best Ideas” dinners, company road trips, conference calls with GARP analysts, and we make numerous in-person analyst visits with clients while we are on the road.
