8 Best Stocks for Value Investors This Week – 12/27/16
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. Therefore, these 8 companies are the best undervalued stocks of the week.
