I evaluated 27 different companies this week to determine whether they are suitable for Defensive Investors, those unwilling to do substantial research, or Enterprising Investors, those who are willing to do such research. I also put each company through the ModernGraham valuation model based on Benjamin Graham's value investing formulas in order to determine an intrinsic value for each. Out of those 27 companies, only 15 were found to be undervalued or fairly valued and suitable for either Defensive or Enterprising Investors.

- Religious extremists took the view that sex was only for procreation, and that this view should be assumed even by those who weren't religious.
- So it took some mavericks to do what the large companies wouldn't.
- There were some female heroes who changed the societal view of female sexuality, some financial heroes who financed the research no one else would, and the scientific heroes who didn't care how they were perceived by the public as they pressed forward.

So how do find pick and choose between the alternatives to find the best available dividend stock?
