Dividends4Life: Dividend Champions Trading Below Their Graham Number

The Graham Number was considered to be the maximum price an investor should pay for a stock, according to the formula developed by Benjamin Graham. 
It is calculated as follows: Graham Number = Square Root of (22.5) x (Earnings per Share) x (Book Value per Share).

This equation is predicated on Graham’s belief that the price-to-earnings (P/EPS) ratio should be no more than 15, and the price-to-book value (P/BVPS) ratio should be no more than 1.5. Therefore we only include companies that meet both of these criteria. As a result, the product of the two should not be more than 22.5. In other words, (P/EPS of 15) x (P/BVPS of 1.5) = 22.5.
