ModernGraham Valuation: Visa (V)

Visa is not suitable for the Defensive Investor because it is a relatively “new” company after only having its IPO a few years ago.

However, the company does appear that it may be suitable for Enterprising Investors.

ModernGraham Valuation: Verizon Communications (VZ)

Verizon Communications appears to be a solid opportunity worthy of further research by both Defensive Investors and Enterprising Investors. The only significant concern is that the EPS for 2013 is estimated to be down significantly from the last few years; however, it does not drag the EPSmg (normalized earnings) down enough to negatively affect the result. The company passes all of the requirements for the Defensive Investor, proving it has strong financials, and it also passes all of the requirements for the Enterprising Investor.
