    • The ModernGraham website cites a variation of the following formula as one of the Graham methods used:

      Intrinsic Value = EPS x (8.5 + 2xGrowth)

      Benjamin Graham actually gave several warnings with this formula and actually used it to demonstrate that the market's growth rate expectations were never reliable. But due to an omission in recent editions of The Intelligent Investor, this formula is often mistakenly used today to evaluate stocks instead of Graham's actual (and more thorough) methods.

      Article: Understanding The Benjamin Graham Formula Correctly discusses the issue in detail.

      Given below is an analysis using Benjamin Graham's full stock selection framework (adjusted only for inflation).

      Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO) - Defensive Graham Ratings

      Sales / Size (100% ⇒ $500 Million): 9,832.20%

      Current Assets ÷ [2 x Current Liabilities>: 161.46%

      Net Current Assets ÷ Long Term Debt: 245.42%

      Earnings Stability (100% ⇒ 10 Years): 100.00%

      Dividend Record (100% ⇒ 20 Years): 30.00%

      Earnings Growth (100% ⇒ 33% Growth): 155.56%

      Graham Number(%): 93.55%

      Equity ÷ Debt (for Utilities and Financials): 111.00%

      NCAV / Net-Net(%): 19.29%

      Defensive Graham investment requires that all ratings - excluding Equity ÷ Debt and NCAV / Net-Net(%) - be 100% or more. 

      Enterprising Graham investment requires minimum ratings of - N/A, 75%, 90%, 50%, 5%, N/A, 137%, N/A and N/A. 

      NCAV / Net-Net(%) is not a Defensive Graham Rating, but is part of Graham's famed NCAV/cigar-butt strategy.
