GPM recently posted an updated Open Stock holdings and metrics document, which can be seen here. You may notice quite a few of the companies listed, including our largest holdings Microsoft, Google, and Apple. GPM's approach to research leads us to find high-quality businesses that compete and win around the world, generating consistent and strong cash flow and earnings through market cycles. We aim to make long-term investments in businesses that have products and services that create tremendous value for customers and that we have the expertise to make reasonable forecasts. After concluding that a company has sustainable competitive advantages, we determine what we believe to be a fair price to pay for the stock based on numerous factors, including growth and returns on invested capital.
We post weekly insights on our blog that cover many of our open positions, some of which you may be less familiar with. Recent posts include HEICO and CoStar Group. Check back in the future for more on our companies!
