Big 5 Sporting Goods Corporation is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the small size, insufficient earnings growth over the last ten years. The Enterprising Investor is only concerned with the lack of earnings growth over the last five years. As a result, all Enterprising Investors following the ModernGraham approach should feel comfortable proceeding with the analysis.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Overvalued after seeing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) decline from $0.83 in 2014 to an estimated $0.53 for 2018. This level of demonstrated earnings growth does not support the market’s implied estimate of 3.88% 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 below the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into Big 5 Sporting Goods Corporation revealed the company was trading below its Graham Number of $11.49. The company pays a dividend of $0.6 per share, for a yield of 7%, putting it among the best dividend paying stocks today. Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 16.27, which was below the industry average of 37.1, which by some methods of valuation makes it one of the most undervalued stocks in its industry. Finally, the company was trading above its Net Current Asset Value (NCAV) of $4.41.

Big 5 Sporting Goods Corporation performs fairly well in the ModernGraham grading system, scoring a B.
