Investing in high quality, U.S. based sustainable growth companies that compete and win worldwide.

GPM offers two distinct portfolio approaches. 100% Stock and Balanced.  Both portfolio strategies are clearly defined, built on the same foundation of approximately 30 high quality companies, and well-tailored to fit each client in support of their long-term wealth accumulation and income generation goals.

Our team members invest in GPM portfolio holdings alongside our clients.  Our founder and lead portfolio manager employs a growth-weighted balanced portfolio approach for nearly 100% of his personal investment accounts, holding the same securities owned for GPM clients.

GPM 100% Stock Portfolio Strategy 

GPM has a disciplined and unwavering dedication to a consistent investment process and exceptional client support.  Our investment philosophy is built with long-term perspective and a commitment to investing in high quality, growing businesses with sustainable competitive and value-creating advantages - profitable companies that we believe will over time, provide attractive overall portfolio returns with less risk than the broad market.

100% stock portfolios are actively managed to deliver growth and income and built on a solid foundation of approximately 30 high-quality, U.S. based, sustainable growth companies that compete and win worldwide.  We focus on high-ROE businesses with track records of delivering rewarding long-term growth in sales, earnings, cash flow, dividends, and ultimately stock prices.  Our companies are built to adapt and thrive while generating growth in value and income for shareholders.  Our strategy gives us confidence to ride out market pullbacks and is well understood by our clients, who share our long-term view.

Our Stock Selection Criteria 

  • A highly sustainable business that we understand, led by an agile and proven management team
  • High quality U.S. based leader with a history of innovation with superior sales and earnings growth
  • Produces a product or service for which demand can be created, increased, and broadened with effective marketing
  • Has the size and scale to compete and win worldwide
  • Business visibility that supports reasonable forecasting
  • Has a shareholder-friendly history of smart capital allocation
  • Generates substantial cash flow to invest internally for growth, make smart acquisitions and increase cash dividend payments to shareholders
  • Stock valuation is reasonable considering historical and prospective growth rates (GARP)

We develop our best understanding of the short and long-term growth prospects for the business. Our analysis should provide reasons to expect the share price to materially appreciate within two years of purchase. We want to buy and hold stocks when the underlying business value is both growing and believed to be greater than the current share price.

GPM Balanced Portfolio Strategy

Our moderate-risk balanced portfolios invest for growth and current income.  Balanced portfolios take a more conservative approach that combines a solid foundation of GPM stocks with a well-diversified bond component to buffer risk and add to an income stream that we expect will grow over time. The bond component holds cash, government and investment grade corporate bonds and high yield issues.   Like many of our clients, we view balanced accounts as a core component of a productive overall retirement investing strategy.  Portfolios are flexibly managed and tailored to individual client risk
