Tim Seymour’s Trade According to GARP

Fast Money trader Tim Seymour says he’s got a trade that’s all about GARP! (We didn’t know what he meant either.)

Seymour, founder of, tells us that GARP is an acronym for growth at a reasonable price. And his play is long Yum!

“This company is executing on all cylinders,” he exclaims in support of his thesis. “Yes, numbers were weak in the first half due to weaker margins but we knew about that."

What's more important is that Seymour, along with a growing number of other bulls, are looking for a rebound in emerging markets in the second half. Therefore, they argue that Yum!’s presence in China is a catalyst for the stock. “The company is showing 15% growth in China,” he says.

And he likes the stock technically. “It bounced off the 200-day moving average.”

All told, he thinks it’s a buy. “No its not cheap at 18 times forward earnings but as far as I can tell, the company will earn the multiple.”
