Growth at a Reasonable Price

An equity investment strategy, popularized by Peter Lynch, that seeks to find a balance between the growth strategy and the valuation strategy. The strategy aims at investing in stocks with sustainable growth in a relatively low (compared to growth investing) price range. GARP investors tend to favor older companies with solid growth rates, such as General Electric.
