I evaluated 36 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 36 companies, only 4 were found to be undervalued or fairly valued and suitable for either Defensive or Enterprising Investors.

Operating Earnings Yield is a profitability and valuation ratio; one of my favorite for company stock analysis. This metric provides valuable information about a company’s profitability and how much you are paying for those profits via the stock price.

- I can't believe it took me more than three decades to read How to Win Friends & Influence People.
- Contrary to what the title of the book may imply this book is not about scamming or tricking people into doing what you want.
- I think How to Win Friends & Influence People should probably be required highschool reading.

Benjamin Graham taught that Intelligent Investors must do a thorough fundamental analysis of investment opportunities to determine their intrinsic value and inherent risk. This is best done by utilizing a systematic approach to analysis that will provide investors with a sense of how a specific company compares to another company or by reviewing the 10 Stocks for Using A Benjamin Graham Value Investing Strategy - January 2017. By using the ModernGraham method one can review a company's historical accomplishments and determine an intrinsic value that can be compared across industries.

Everyone wants to earn more. For investors in dividend growth stocks, the quick way to earn more is to select dividend stocks with higher yields. Swap those 2-4% yields in for stocks earning 6-10%, or more. Before making the trade, you should ask yourself the following two questions...

- Two years ago I wrote about a tiny company called IWG Technologies that makes water systems for aircraft.
- I've become more patient in letting positions run up before selling, but of course that has left me more susceptible to corrections where I could have booked gains but prices came back down before I could.
- The lesson for all investors though is that low EV/EBIT generates good returns versus the risk, with IWG Technologies just being the latest example.

- Similar houses are now listed a year later for $200k, a $40k jump in a single year.
- How can people at their first job afford a $230k house? Who's paying $5k for a 20 year old truck that will probably need another $2,500 in parts and a hundred hours of labor? Is there really demand for this stuff? And what is the demand that pushed starter home prices up 25% in a year?
- Where are the net-nets? Where is the distressed debt? Where is anything that isn't having the best quarter and year ever?
