Legendary value investor Benjamin Graham is probably most famous for his Mr. Market parable. In the story, an investor is greeted each day by Mr. Market, who offers to purchase the investor's stocks. Every offer is different, and sometimes the price is insanely high, sometimes it seems fair, and other times it is clearly too low. But one thing remains the same - the intrinsic value of the investments does not change. As a result, the investor is left to decide when to buy and sell based on the relationship between the intrinsic value and the price Mr. Market is offering.

Net Financial Debt and its ratios are an effective and efficient metric when analyzing companies for risk & leverage. These metrics are more important than ever because of the corporate trend to leave cash overseas and borrow domestically.

One of the advantages of being a dividend investor is that I invest in businesses that meet a certain qualitative and quantitative criteria. This allows me to focus on quality compounding machines with established track records. This discipline also allows me to avoid overpaying for those companies. Even the best company in the world is not worth overpaying for. The third trait I have is patience - I am willing to sit on a stock for years, which reduces transaction costs and lets me take advantage of the maximum power of long-term compounding.

I evaluated 21 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 21 companies, only 8 were found to be undervalued or fairly valued and suitable for either Defensive or Enterprising Investors.
