We evaluated 20 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.
Intuitive Surgical does not qualify for the Defensive Investor but does satisfy for the Enterprising Investor. The Defensive Investor has concerns with the lack of dividend payments and the high PEmg and PB ratios, while the Enterprising Investor’s only issue is the lack of dividend payments.
