ILG Inc is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the low current ratio, poor dividend history, and the high PEmg ratio. The Enterprising Investor is only concerned with the level of debt relative to the net current assets. 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 Fairly Valued after growing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) from $1.11 in 2014 to an estimated $1.56 for 2018. This level of demonstrated earnings growth supports the market’s implied estimate of 6.34% 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 within a margin of safety relative to the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into ILG Inc revealed the company was trading above its Graham Number of $19.59. The company pays a dividend of $0.6 per share, for a yield of 1.8% Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 21.18, which was below the industry average of 40.73, which by some methods of valuation makes it one of the most undervalued stocks in its industry.
