Hanesbrands Inc. is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not the more conservative Defensive Investor.

This level of demonstrated earnings growth outpaces the market’s implied estimate of 5.94% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on the Benjamin Graham value investing formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value above the price.
