A Trio of Large-Cap Stocks Trading Below the Graham Number

They could be bargain opportunities

December 27, 2020 | About:

The Graham Number is calculated as the square root of "earnings per share x book value per share x 22.5."

The first stock that makes the cut is Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC), a U.S. bank major.

The stock traded at a price of $29.96 per share at close on Thursday, which is below the Graham Number of $30.43, for a price-to-Graham-Number ratio of 0.98.

The stock price has fallen by 15.23% over the past year, determining a market capitalization of $295.18 billion and a 52-week range of $17.95 to $35.67.

GuruFocus has assigned a score of 3 out of 10 for the company's financial strength and of 4 out of 10 for its profitability.

On Wall Street, the stock has a median recommendation rating of overweight with an average price target of $30.71 per share.

The company's top fund holder is Warren Buffett with 11.68% of shares outstanding, followed by VANGUARD GROUP INC with 7.09% and BlackRock Inc. with 5.89%.

Toyota Motor Corp

The second stock that makes the cut is Toyota Motor Corp (NYSE:TM), a Japanese automaker.

The stock traded at a price of $150.47 per share at close on Thursday, which is below the Graham Number of $167.89, for a price-to-Graham-Number ratio of nearly 0.90.

The stock price has risen by 6.5% over the past year for a market capitalization of $210.35 billion and a 52-week range of $108.01 to $156.30.
