BAX does not clear Graham's qualitative criteria for the Defensive, Enterprising or NCAV investment grades; and therefore no Intrinsic Value or Intrinsic Value(%) could be assigned.

Note: This does not necessarily make BAX 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 BAX's Margin of Safety.

Comments

Hi guys,

Is BAX stock still ungraded? It seems like Enterprise, even a Defensive stock.. Or Am I missing something?

Dear Sykn,

Baxter International Inc (BAX) does indeed come very close to clearing both Defensive and Enterprising grades.
However, the Earnings Growth is slightly below the required value at 96.81% as can be seen in the Graham Ratings tab.
