I’ve selected five of the most overvalued companies reviewed by ModernGraham. Each company has been determined to not be suitable for either the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor according to the ModernGraham approach. Here is a summary of each company’s valuation.
We evaluated 19 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. We 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. Here’s a summary of the ModernGraham Valuations.
Cincinnati Financial Corp does not qualify for either the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned by the lack of sufficient earnings growth over the last ten years, while the Enterprising Investor has an issue with the lack of earnings growth over the last five years.
