All of the major stock market indexes are priced at or near all-time highs. So it is not surprising that countless individual stocks are trading at lofty, and likely unsustainable, valuations. That said, you can still find growth at a reasonable price or GARP if you know where to look.
Using Value Line’s resources, one can start finding stocks that are presently trading at price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios below their 10-year historical averages. But naturally, GARP requires growth too. The goal is to find companies with excellent product rosters, enjoy wide margins and generate ample profits to potentially fund additional growth endeavors.
These stocks should fit nicely in most equity portfolios, particularly those that are focused on long-term gains.
