One popular approach to investing based on Benjamin Graham’s methods is to use the so-called “Graham Number.” There are some important differences between the Graham Number and the Graham Formula, but using the Graham Number is definitely useful even if the investor only uses it as a screening tactic.
I have selected the best companies trading below their Graham Number. The companies selected all are suitable for the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor, and have been valued as undervalued based on the ModernGraham valuation model. Further, the overall screen found 28 companies meeting these criteria (out of over 745 companies covered). The full list can be found near the end of this article. To cut down on the length of the post, I have selected 10 stocks trading furthest below their Graham Number.
Defensive Investors are defined as investors who are not able or willing to do substantial research into individual investments, and therefore need to select only the companies that present the least amount of risk. Enterprising Investors, on the other hand, are able to do substantial research and can select companies that present a moderate (though still low) amount of risk. Each company suitable for the Defensive Investor is also suitable for Enterprising Investors.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2018: Toro Company (The)(TTC)
- [By Mitchell Clark]
The Toro Company (NYSE:TTC) is one of my favorite small-caps for medium- to long-term investors. Selling specialized equipment for turf management and other industries, Toro is a proven winner that has provided very consistent growth in sales and earnings over the years.
It’s not the fastest growing small-cap business, but it pays a decent dividend and has a loyal customer base in the golf course and contractor markets.
Toro is now offering sprinkler refit equipment for water-starved jurisdictions like California. This company’s share price performance has been exemplary.
