The Graham number or Benjamin Graham number is a figure used in securities investing that measures a stock's so-called fair value. Named after Benjamin Graham, the founder of value investing, the Graham Number can be calculated as follows:

The Graham Number D5b77410

Alternative calculation
Earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income by shares outstanding. Book value is another way of saying shareholders' equity. Therefore, book value per share is calculated by dividing equity by shares outstanding. Consequently, the formula for the Graham number can also be written as follows:

The Graham Number Ben10


This is one of the ways to estimate the intrinsic value of business based on their book value and their earnings power.

Unlike valuation methods such as DCF or Discounted Earnings, the Graham number does not take growth into the valuation. Unlike the valuation methods based on book value alone, it takes into account the earnings power. Therefore, the Graham Number is a combination of asset valuation and earnings power valuation.

In general, the Graham number is a very conservative way of valuing a stock. It cannot be applied to companies with negative book values.

Graham value is applicable only to the companies that have positive earnings and positive tangible book value.

The final number is, theoretically, the maximum price that a defensive investor should pay for the given stock.Put another way, a stock priced below the Graham Number would be considered a good value, if it also meet a number of other criteria.

The complete Graham selection procedure is much more elaborate. No decision should be made based on this number alone.

When applying any of those valuation methods, you need to be aware of their limitations. Please keep these in mind:

1. Graham Number does not take growth into account. Therefore it underestimates the values of the companies that have good earnings growth. We feel that if the earnings per share grows more than 10% a year, Graham Number underestimates the value.

2. Graham Number punishes the companies that have temporarily low earnings. Therefore, an average of earnings makes more sense in the calculation of Graham Number.

3. Graham Numbers underestimates companies that are light with book.

Interesting ! So Graham Number for say ALLI is 1600 !

Antonym

Post Fri Sep 07, 2012 7:53 pm by Antonym

Based on the latest Annual Reports, the Graham Number for some of my favorite shares is as follows...
RENU: Rs 657
CFLB: Rs 71
CABO: Rs 118
CTLD: Rs 71
JINS: Rs 18

Quite frankly, I prefer the Antonym Number...

Stock selection and investing should never be restricted to quantitative methods. However, I have found it useful to use a formula to assess whether a share is worth investing in or not; it is a method of elimination, not a method of selection.

My simple formula assigns weights to financial performance parameters that matter to me:
(5 x EPS) + (0.6 x BVPS) + (10 x DPS)

Let's take some assumed figures for a hypothetical company...
EPS = Earnings per Share = Rs 7.40
BVPS = Book Value per share = Rs 55.55
DPS = Dividend per Share = Rs 2.50
Then, according to my formula, the maximum that I would pay for that share is:
(5 x 7.40) + (0.6 x 55.55) + (10 x 2.50) = Rs 95.33.

Try it out, change the weights if you wish, and see whether it works for your favorite share!

share values depend on the sector, ie industry, so shares in some sectors never rise to a true value.

In CSE Plantation,Motor sector shares did not meet Graham criterion, and always undervalued.

Thanks Shri & Antonym for your contributions.

My suggestions to improve usefulness of the two numbers;

Greham Number:- Use estimated future EPS instead of historical EPS.
Antonym Number:- Use Sector wise weitages insted of a fixed numbers.

Warning: Manipulated shares need to be avoided.
