Creating the Revised Graham Enterprising Investor Screen

Benjamin Graham is famously called the father of modern value investing. His investment methodology is based on fundamental analysis, seeking companies that are undervalued. He introduced the concepts of security analysis and intrinsic value. In fact, Warren Buffett, one of the greatest investors of our time, credits Benjamin Graham with being one of his strongest investing influences.

AAII currently follows three separate Graham screens based on Benjamin Graham’s methodologies as described in his book, “The Intelligent Investor” (revised edition: Collins Business, 2003).
