Stock market operators may have different opinions about which type of research approach is best. Individual investors who prefer buying and holding strategies are more likely to study the fundamentals. Operators who constantly buy and sell shares may be more interested in technical analysis. High-frequency traders may be willing to take more risks to enter the market. For these types of operators, entry and exit points become much more important. Traders can only rely on charts to make profits based on daily price fluctuations, now at the hour or minute by minute. Long-term investors may not be so worried about the daily ups and downs of the market.
Benjamin Graham, professor and founder of valuable investment principles, was one of the first to constantly screen the market in search of cheap companies based on value factors. He had no database like ValueSignals at his disposal, but he used people like his apprentice Warren Buffet to fill out the stock sheets with the most important data.
Graham was always on guard for companies that were so obvious, that if the company went into liquidation, the proceeds of the assets would still return a profit.
The relationship he used to identify these companies was the Net Asset Value or NCAV. This ratio is much stricter than the book value (total assets – total liabilities) and is calculated as follows:
NCAV = Current assets – Total liabilities
Current assets = cash and investments in ST + inventories + credits
Graham was only happy if he could buy the company for 2/3 of the NCAV. This is the kind of safety margin he was looking for.
This strategy was very successful in the years following the publication of Graham in his book "Analysis of security" in 1934 and even in more recent studies has shown to provide superior results. A study conducted by the State University of New York to demonstrate the effectiveness of this strategy has shown that from the period 1970-1983 an investor could have obtained an average return of 29.4%, buying securities that met the requirement of Graham and holding them for one year. Today it is very difficult to find companies that meet Graham's criteria.
