In 2012, Y H & C Investments listed its GARP Model (Growth at a Reasonable Price) on an investment web site called Covestor.   Covestor is now part of Interactive Brokers but is called Interactive Advisors.   Growth at a reasonable price is the philosophy of researching, identifying, and then buying the stock of company’s that have the ability to grow for a long time.  The challenge is buying them at a ‘reasonable’ price .   The reason why people invest today is so they will have more money in the future.  By owning companies that have expanded for 3, 5, and 10 years or more, owners of the model have participated in this growth.  There is not much turnover in the model, which just means we want to own these companies and not trade them.  Quite a few of the companies pay quarterly dividends, which are increased on a yearly basis.  There are some which do not pay dividends, but they use their cash flow to either reinvest in the business, pay down debt, or to buy back the stock if management feels it is cheap.  It has quite a few high profile holdings and has positive returns in 6 out of the last 7 years including a better return than the S&P 500 in 4 out the 7 years.

As a way to help investors find the model, it is listed on the NASDAQ exchange as a Separately Managed Account with the ticker symbol YHCGRX.  It is not a mutual fund, but a model.  The model can be invested in at Interactive Advisors by opening an account there- click the following link- Interactive Advisors for that page.  It will provide return and performance information for the last 5 years.

The minimum level of investment for the model is $10,000 and the fee to invest is 1.5% yearly, billed every three months.  The fee is split between Y H & C Investments and Interactive Advisors.  The model is a nice alternative for investors who want to be able to invest with Y H & C Investments, but don’t meet the $50,000.00 minimum threshold.
