OSV & Graham Deep Value Screen


A couple of weeks ago, I introduced you all to a value stock screener by  Happy Investors based on the stock value calculators and I also wanted to reveal something I’ve been thinking about and working on over the weeks as well.

To begin with, I’ve created two value stock screeners.

It’s based on finding deep value stocks with the stock calculator and Graham’s net net spreadsheet which I modified to include NCAV.

The OSV screen is filled with data and useful metrics and ratios which you won’t find in any other stock screener. For each stock, it contains all the investing ratios and metrics that I discussed previously. See the post for a full explanation on each metric that I have included.

One downside is that because there is so much information for each stock, the web page is very wide and you have to scroll across.

Also, if you want to see a specific stock which isn’t up there, send me a comment and I’ll add it in as all the stocks listed in this screen are manually configured to be as precise as possible.

Deep Value Cheap Stocks from Graham Screen

Benjamin Graham Stock Screen

The Graham stock screen lists the companies that are supposed to be cheap compared to their NNWC and NCAV values.

Since companies only reach their NNWC values once a decade or during extreme pessimism, I decided to include the NCAV value as well.

Just a quick reminder on what  is NNWC and NCAV.

Net Net Working Capital

NNWC = Cash and short-term investments + (0.75 * accounts receivable) + (0.5 * inventory) – total liabilities

Net Current Asset Value

NCAV = current assets – total liabilities

    Jae .. what about AZZ? How does it show up in the above screen../

  • Do you mean how does it not show up?

  • Al D’Andrea

    Great site! Do you plan to update the screener output or is the screener something you can buy?

    Thanks!

  • @ Al D’Andrea,

    I’m afraid that I’m phasing out the OSV screener. I can’t update it as quick as I would like. It will be replaced with several other screens I am working on.

    Too bad about the phase out. The ‘standard’ value screen was a good place to start for new investors. Hopefully you’ll introduce something similar. Great jobs on the other screeners. CROIC screen looks like a useful tool to make great finds.
