LSE:UDG clears Graham's qualitative criteria for the Defensive investment grade. Therefore, its Intrinsic Value is equivalent to its Defensive Price. However, LSE:UDG's Intrinsic Value(%) evaluates to less than 100% — 69.90% — because its Previous Close is higher than its Intrinsic Value.

Note: This does not necessarily make LSE:UDG a bad investment. Graham specified additional categories for Blue Chips, Utilities & Financials, and Special Situations. Graham's Intrinsic Value calculations need to be adjusted for current bond yields as well. The Graham Ratings tab gives an overall picture of LSE:UDG's Margin of Safety.
