Stock screener: Conservative Value

This free screener is inspired in the teachings of Benjamin Graham, ideological father of the Value Investing school. Financial metrics might have changed, but conceptual soundness is still as fresh as when it was born.

It scouts for low to moderate risk companies, with attractive valuations. To qualify for these scouting criteria, a company should have:

  • Low operating risk as well as low financial risk. The first measured as revenues stability (predictability is better than business uncertainty), the second by indebtedness (moderately or lower)
  • A not so small company size, as per market capitalization.
  • An attractive valuation, by standards of adjusted versions of the Price Earnings and Price to Book Value.

The first two metrics aim at lowering investment risk, while the last one at getting Margin of Safety (the difference between the Intrinsic Value – value, the true worth of the business – and the stock price – what you pay for). Awarener screener also seeks Margin of safety, with a different approach and with less stringent metrics regarding investment risk.
