GOOGL clears Graham's qualitative criteria for the NCAV (Net-Net) investment grade. Therefore, its Intrinsic Value is equivalent to its NCAV (Net-Net) Price. However, GOOGL's Intrinsic Value(%) evaluates to less than 100% — 10.40% — because its Previous Close is higher than its Intrinsic Value.

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